How to Create and Load IEC61850 configuration files into ION meters

Product line

Environment
Firmware

Resolution
Implementing IEC61850 protocol requires CET850, which uses the ICD file specified and creates a CID file. It is this CID file which is then uploaded to the meter via FTP. Please see page 12 of IEC 61850 and ION Technology, and the attached SFTCommon libraries and detailed instructions on how to load the CID files into ION meters.

Also, see FA212490 for creating a CID file for an ION7550/7650 using CET850.

Download CET850 from the Schneider Electric site (This CET850 IEC61850 configuration tool replaces the previous tool called SFT850 software, therefore it works with Sepam IEC61850 protocol as well).
