We combined VELA with IEC 61850 protocol. Remote monitoring of chargers, batteries and DC-UPS devices is very easy now using IEC 61850 communication standard for electrical substation automation.
VELA’s software includes support for the IEC 61850 remote access protocol, which enables monitoring of the status of the equipment, parameters and alarms from the control room. This will enable us to plan maintenance and visits more flexibly and cost-effectively. The IEC 61850 device specification provides information on the operation of the charger, battery status, temperatures, and power supply and load failures. If needed, we can deliver customized device definitions according to the needs of the network user and customize the entire DC power supply.
According to the standards:
- IEC 61850-7-3: object and attribute types
- IEC 61850-7-4: node definitions, objects, attributes and measurement nodes MMDC and TTMP
- IEC 61850-7-4-420: ZBAT (battery) and ZBTC (charger).
