XEM Dynamic Integration Platform

The Dynamic Integration Framework provides a generic, high performance solution for Smart Grid integraton, based on open standard information modelling of the IEC 61850 models and the DMTF common information model (CIM).

It provides a number of ready-made, off-the-shelf protocol adapters (MMS, SNMP, 60870-5-104, ODBC, ASCII, XML) feeding script driven translators for easy integration of your existing equipment types and applications, adaptable without downtime.

Product Highlights

  • Built-in IEC 61850 mediation
  • Scada 5-104 Mediation
  • Out of the box adaptors for MMS, GOOSE,OPC, XML, SNMP
  • Adaptor development kit to quickly integrate proprietary protocols
  • Dynamic Reconfigurable with Java Script
  • Efficient and Flexible Change Management
  • Platforms: Linux, Solaris, HPUX, Windows
  • Distribution Service provides for a Scalable platform capable of supporting a large number of IEDs

IEC 61850 Protocol Library Suite

Xelas Energy has implemented the complete IEC 61850 protocol suite, including:

  • MMS (Manufacturing Message Specification) (for core ACSI Services)
    • Including RFC1006 and ISO CO T-Profile TP4/CLNP
  • SV (Sampled Values) (for Multicast)
  • GOOSE (Generic Object Oriented Substation Event)
  • GSSE (Generic Substation Status Event) (between the network servers)
  • SNTP ( for time Synchronization)

All protocols are available in library format for easy application integration.
