Moxa's PT-7528 Series Ethernet Switches Pass IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 KEMA Testing

Brea, California, November 20, 2014—Moxa, a leading provider of industrial networking solutions, announced today that Moxa’s PT-7528 series PowerTrans Ethernet switches have successfully passed KEMA performance and functional tests for compliancy with IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 class 2 standards, which specify environmental and EMI immunity requirements for network equipment used in substations. KEMA is a well-respected laboratory for consulting, one-stop testing, and certification services in the energy and utility markets. Many of KEMA’s clients, including ABB, AREVA, and Siemens, are key players in the power automation industry.

The PowerTrans PT-7528 series is designed for power substation automation applications in extremely harsh environments. Taking advantage of Moxa’s newest Noise Guard™ technology, the PT-7528 series has not only passed the KEMA tests, verifying compliancy with IEC 61850 standards, but also has EMC immunity that exceeds IEEE 1613 Class 2 standards to ensure zero packet loss while transmitting at wire speed. PT-7528 switches feature critical packet prioritization (GOOSE, SMVs, and PTP), a built-in MMS server, and a configuration wizard designed specifically for substation automation. With Gigabit Ethernet, redundant ring, and 110/220 VDC/VAC isolated redundant power supplies, the PT-7528 series further increases the reliability of your communications and saves cabling and wiring costs.
