Moxa’s IEC 61850 Modeling Switch Now Interoperable with Elipse Power Systems

Taipei, Taiwan, October 31, 2013 – Moxa, a global provider of industrial automation solutions, recently announced that its new PowerTrans series Ethernet switches, which are IEC 61850 compliant, will be fully interoperable with Elipse Power Systems for electrical substation network control, monitoring, and management using MMS (Manufacturing Message Specification) protocol.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to conduct a comprehensive interoperability test between our PowerTrans switches and Elipse Software systems. MMS compatibility allows PowerTrans switches to be controlled, monitored, and managed via a Power SCADA system, which is critical for reliable electrical substation operation and eliminates the need for additional network management software,” stated Dennis Lin, manager of Moxa Power Communication Infrastructure division.

Power SCADA systems can now directly access Moxa’s PowerTrans switches, making network troubleshooting more efficient when issues arise and allows operators to respond quickly. In addition, remote management through Power SCADA systems can alleviate operation and maintenance requirements to reduce total cost of ownership.

Elipse Software is an industrial automation software producer whose main activities are designing and selling software for HMI/SCADA projects and interfaces for many types of applications, especially in power SCADA system. Elipse Software solution, Elipse Power, is fully compatible with devices from serial to Ethernet to different IEDs. There are many reference sites worldwide.
