    Installed in Electric Power Substations

    IEC 61850 and IEEE 1613

    IEC 61850 

    The IEC 61850 standard defines a next-generation architecture for communications networks and systems in substations. It covers all aspects of the communications between devices in the substation and the related systems.

    IEC61850-3 refers to IEC 870-2-2 “Telecontrol equipment and systems – part 2: Operating conditions – section 2: Environmental conditions (climatic, mechanical and other non-electrical influences)”. To be compliant with IEC 61850, Ethernet products must meet or exceed the specifications.

    Magnum IEC 61850 compliant products include:

    IEEE 1613

    The IEEE1613 standard defines the environmental conditions present in electric power substations and establishes a common reproducible basis for designing and evaluating communications networking devices to be installed in these substations.
