A new revision of Relion® 670 series version 1.1 has been released. The new revision designation of the 670 series is 1p1r27.

The following has been corrected / improved in the new revision:

System and security related

  • Security improvements in IEC 61850, MMS protocol
    • A path traversal issue in MMS has been resolved.
  • Routing between interfaces
    • If configured erroneously, TCP/IP traffic can be routed between the different Ethernet interfaces of the IED. This has now been corrected.
  • “IED Failure” message on the LHMI
    • Some users were experiencing IEDs with LHMI’s showing “IED Failure”. This has now been corrected.
  • Semi-retain memory handling
    • The stability of the semi-retain memory handling has been improved.

Application related

  • Autorecloser uses wrong deadtime for next reclosing cycle when highspeed reclosing is inhibited
    • The autorecloser used a wrong deadtime during a reclosing cycle STARTHS – INHIBIT – START. This is now corrected to use the correct deadtimes depending on the initiated inputs.
  • Fault locator showing wrong distance
    • During conditions where there is a transient occurring before the fault, the fault locator has in some cases calculated distance to fault with a large error or no calculation has been performed.
