Environmental Standards for Networking Devices
Installed in Electric Power Substations

IEC 61850 and IEEE 1613

IEC 61850 

The IEC 61850 standard defines a next-generation architecture for communications networks and systems in substations. It covers all aspects of the communications between devices in the substation and the related systems.

IEC61850-3 refers to IEC 870-2-2 “Telecontrol equipment and systems – part 2: Operating conditions – section 2: Environmental conditions (climatic, mechanical and other non-electrical influences)”. To be compliant with IEC 61850, Ethernet products must meet or exceed the specifications.

Magnum IEC 61850 compliant products include:

IEEE 1613

The IEEE1613 standard defines the environmental conditions present in electric power substations and establishes a common reproducible basis for designing and evaluating communications networking devices to be installed in these substations.

DYMEC, now operating as GarrettCom Utility Networks, provides a full range of substation-hardened networking products for power utility customers. These include DynaStar Ethernet switches and serial device servers, Optical Stars, Industrial Frame Routers, and RS-232/422/485 Media Converters for serial-over-fiber connectivity. All devices meet the IEEE 1613 and IEC61850-3 specifications, and DYMEC Links media converters are Class 1, Division 2 certified for use in hazardous locations.
