We are pleased to announce the release of Relion® SAM600-IO version 2.2 as a key element for enabling digital substations. Relion® SAM600-IO joins the SAM600 family of process-level equipment. It interfaces primary apparatus to IEC 61850 process bus.
The SAM600 product family addresses the growing market of Digital Substations with IEC 61850 compatible merging units interfacing conventional current and voltage instrument transformers. With the introduction of Relion® SAM600-IO version 2.2, we further enhance the product family, specifically for interfacing primary apparatus, such as circuit breakers, disconnectors, earth switches and transformer tap changers to the IEC 61850 process bus directly from the switchyard.
Key system features, such as support for a large number of Ethernet communication ports, HSR and PRP redundancy method, and precision time synchronization following the IEC/IEEE 61850-9-3 profile are available with this release.
