EN 50160 power quality measurement and short circuit alarming - new GPRS & Ethernet IEC 60870-5-104 communication products.

EN 50160 power quality measurement and short circuit alarming - new GPRS & Ethernet IEC 60870-5-104 communication products.
Bausch Datacom will release 4 new products as from Q3 2013. These products communicate as IEC 60870-5-104 slave hardware over GPRS and Ethernet. Aim is to offer cost effective hardware to communicate with master IEC 60870-5-104 host software such as ABB SPIDER, Clearscada ...

European electricity distributors are compelled to comply with European standard EN 50160 and in many cases offer additional service level agreements to their customers in order to reduce voltage fluctuation of the required standard (norm) consumption. Taking in account voltage variations of high and mid-voltage infrastructures voltage variations of low-voltage supply still remains in many cases. 
Lifetime and physical boundaries of infrastructure and short circuit events make it thus necessary to (tele)monitor mid-voltage and low-voltage electricity cabinets. The WAN communication of these parameters is in most cases through Ethernet or GPRS TCP/IP communication.

Lifetime and physical boundaries of infrastructure and short circuit events make it necessary to (tele)monitor mid-voltage and low-voltage electricity cabinets. Infrax Belgium uses for instance the Bausch DinBox RTU SL in combination with a Gossen Metrawatt A2000 for power quality measurement.

Bausch Datacom will release as from Q3 2013 new products tailored for the utility (electricity) market. These products communicate as IEC 60870-5-104 slave hardware over GPRS and Ethernet. Aim is to offer cost effective hardware to communicate with master IEC 60870-5-104 host software such as ABB SPIDER, Clearscada a.o.

Through digital and analog inputs/outputs or RS-485 Modbus interfacing alarm or monitoring information can be transferred over GPRS or Ethernet using the SCADA IEC 60870-5-104 TCP/IP protocol. The devices are especially suitable for power quality measurement and short circuit alarming communication. Bausch specializes therefore in tailor made GPRS and Ethernet communication applications.

The following products integrating the SCADA IEC 60870-5-104 slave protocol will be available as from July 2013:
