Off-line configuration

With every order of 500-series transmission terminals, Hitachi Energy generates files that reflect the exact terminal functions ordered. These files can be loaded into the software. This adjusts the function library to contain the same functions as the terminals. This enables efficient off-line engineering. Follow the instructions in the order acknowledgment or contact your local Hitachi Energy representative and the files will be sent automatically to you by e-mail.
