SmartGridware® Java IEC61850 Data Logger

Logging data from IEC61850 Servers

Product Overview

The SmartGridware® IEC61850 Data Logger is an IEC61850 client application for receiving and logging data values from an IED. It is configured via XML and provides a simple command line for basic logging control. It currently uses Integrity/Change reports or Polling to obtain the data.




Product Features

 

The data logger supports the following set of features:

  • Data model initialization via SCL or IED Discovery
  • Supports data collection via the following means:
    • report control block integrity reports
    • polling of DataSets or individual data values
  • Supports creation of dynamic data sets
  • Supports configurable connection management with automatic re-establishment
  • Command Line Interface for starting/stopping logging as well as querying the IED
  • Encrypted security information on configuration files
  • Supports limits on logfile size, logging times, etc.
  • Currently supports CSV output file formats.
  • Under Development: web based configuration interface
