AC500 IEC 61850 for ABB Protection Relays
I have an urgent project with ACS6000 Modbus TCP-IP and around 20pcs ABB Protection Relays far away (1km).
I wanted to apply AC800M & CI868 for IEC61850 for communication with relays (both GOOSE & MMS) but now my client asks for AC500!
IEC61850 is not yet supported by AC500 (to come in 4Q2017 so far I have heard). Any idea how to do this with a coupler? Any gateway ref. to advise?
Any CB+ backup available? AC500 + ABB relays, IEC104 or IEC61850 (GOOSE).
Thanks in advance.
There are some gateways like Prosoft (http://www.prosoft-technology.com/Pro...), Anybus (https://www.anybus.com/products/gatew...), and others, but I´d suggest to use RTU500 performing gateway from IEC-61850-GOOSE/MMS to IEC-104 or Modbus TCP. This way you could keep all solution under ABB portfolio.
