SIPROTEC Relay integration with ABB 800xA
we have siemens relays at one of our site which are already communicating with siemens scada. CLient wants to show the status of those relays in ABB scada also without affecting siemens communication. Communication protocol is IEC61850.
One method of doing this communication is to use softwares like Kepware & PlcConnect but we are not using any controller. This is possible as I had seen it but I dont know the process or sequence of steps to be taken.
Does someone has the experience in doing the same work. can some one help me out.
Yes it can be done without affecting the existing communication. No controller is required if you are using System800xA. System800xA has IEC61850 Connect which enables the system to communicate with IEC61850 devices vertically using IEC61850 OPC server.
You need to collect .icd files of the SIPROTEC relays and generated .scd file. Import this file into System800xA and you will get to read the data in 800xA.
