Resolution
 The M580 PAC does not support the IEC61850 protocol. but it does meet the IEC 61850-3 general wiring requirements.
The IEC 61850-3 standard specifies general requirements for the hardware design of IEC 61850 devices used in substations. IEC 61850-3 devices must meet three major requirements.
The three requirements focus on EMI, temperature and shock/vibration resistance.
The first requirement, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).
For the second requirement, the IEC 61850-3 standard requires a -40° to 75°C operating temperature range.
Finally, IEC 61850-3 devices must meet a 50G anti-shock and 5-500 MHz anti-vibration requirement to ensure continued operation after being dropped from a rack mount in a device cabinet.
