Version 4 of IEDScout software available
OMICRON’s IEDScout 4.00 software tool for easy and manufacturer-independent IED analyses now supports edition 2 of IEC 61850 and IEC 61400-25. It visualizes the commissioning workflow and shows the description texts as defined in the standard. In addition, a new user interface assists in finding all relevant IED information.
This software runs on a PC and supports protection and substation automation engineers, who work with IEC 61850 devices, in a variety of applications, such as testing, commissioning, troubleshooting, and IED development. It allows users to look inside IEC 61850 IEDs from any vendor and to work with multiple IEDs simultaneously.
IEDScout enables users to drag and drop information to the new Activity Monitor. This combines reports, GOOSE, datasets and polling of any type of data. In addition, it comes with an intelligent and powerful SCL parser to check the quality of the engineering files according to IEC 61850-6. The software’s new user interface also enables engineers to browse and discover the IED’s data model.
Substation engineers can use this tool for assessing the status of an IED, manipulating data, or obtaining the information required to configure testing with GOOSE messages. During commissioning, IEDScout provides client functionality without requiring a functioning master station. IED developers can use this tool to verify the structure and the functionality of the devices under development.
