PCM600 Product Guide

The Protection and Control IED Manager PCM600 tool provides versatile functionalities for the entire life-cycle of all Relion® protection and control IED applications, at all voltage levels. This easy-to-handle tool helps the user to manage your protection and control equipment all the way from application and communication configuration to disturbance handling, including automatic disturbance reporting.

Designed to communicate, PCM600 interacts with intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) over the fast and reliable TCP/IP via corporate LAN or WAN, or alternatively directly through the communication port at the front of the IED. PCM600 tool is able to read and write all configuration and setting data of an IED with a single command.

The user interface, workflow and the IEC 61850-based data model in PCM600 are designed according to the same philosophy as the Relion® protection and control IEDs, ensuring smooth and seamless integration between the tool and the IEDs.

PCM600 has been designed from the beginning with the IEC 61850 standard in mind. All the functionality is modeled in a way that it reflects the IEC 61850 configuration directly during the engineering. Multivendor product and system interoperability is guaranteed with an independently verified IEC 61850 Edition 2 certificate.

PCM600 also secures the projects and data created with earlier versions of the PCM600 tool, which enables full backwards compatibility.
