Between the high-voltage wires, and pressurized pipes, of a modern utility, lies a second, equally important, network. Snaking fiber-optic cables connect SCADA systems that monitor and manage the product delivery, but visualizing this second network requires a new breed of management tool – the SDM600.

Protection relays do the vital work of monitoring the delivery network, but ensuring they’re all updated and properly configured has become increasingly burdensome, at least until the SDM600 takes on the job of tracking versions. Using IEC 61850 interfaces the SDM600 software keeps a watchful eye on protection relays so the user can ensure they’re all running the latest software, and to the greatest effect.

SDM600 also talks to relays when collecting, and collating, fault records data. The gathered comtrade files are recorded into short reports for later analysis, while the SDM600 dashboard presents historical reports so we can see what happened and when with unprecedented ease. Authenticating users is another task which has ballooned as management networks grow in complexity, and one which SDM600 takes in its stride. Cybersecurity is a vital component in modern networks, but fragmented directory policies risk exposing critical vulnerabilities which SDM600 can avoid. With centralized security logging and central account management SDM600 becomes the gatekeeper to the automation network.

SDM600 1.3.5

Hitachi Energy recommends upgrading all existing SDM600 installations to SDM600 1.3.5.


SDM600 1.3.5 introduces a cybersecurity dashboard which present statistics of cybersecurity events that are received by SDM600 in various views. The Cybersecurity Dashboard offers a hierarchical view of network events and customizable time horizons for pattern tracking. Additionally, SDM600 1.3.5 also comes with ability to setup a rule to map a non-compliant Hitachi Energy's User Activity Logging format by using the custom event mapping rules functionality. 


On top of those, SDM600 1.3.5 comes with various additional improvements, remediate found security vulnerabilities, and bug fixes.
