Compact control Builder V6.0 with AC800M controller (With out eA)
We have a project requirement where we need to provide a system to interface with relays on IEC61850. This datas will be transfered to anaother 800xA system (older 5.0Sp1 version). We are planning to provide AC800M with compact control builder V6.0 and transfer the data to old system using MMS communication between new and old systems.
My doubt is whether we need to use AC800M-eA products for this or we can use normal AC800M controllers along with compact control builder. I am asking this because we may have to integrate this new compact system with the old 800xA system once this old system is upgarded to latest 800xA version which supports IEC61850 (with in two years). During that we should not endup with an AC800M controller which does'nt support 800xA.
You can use non-eA units with Compact control builder.
If you would like to integrate a stand alone AC 800M to 800xA you need a license. For non-eA units there is a license for use of AC 800M in 800xA. eA units there will be licenses avaialbe in the next release of the price list.
