EtherWAN introduces hardened-grade Ethernet Switches, Media Converters and Serial Device Servers that is compliant to IEC61850/IEEE 1613 standard, which is an Ethernet-based protocol standard that mainly used in the power grid and substations for data communications.

While communication is a crucial criterion to utility, power grid and substations, the IEC61850/IEEE1613-certified equipment guarantees all the reliability in communication to different terminals such as on measuring, monitoring and control stations. "Our IEC61850-certified equipment meet all requiring criteria for substation environments. This certification demonstrates the safety and stability of implementation when they choose EtherWAN," Ben Chiang said, Product Manager at EtherWAN.

EtherWAN's EX87000, Managed Hardened 24-port 10/100BASE and 4 Gigabit ports Ethernet Switch, has been certified to IE61850/IEEE 1613. The EX87000, rack-mountable and fan-less design with redundant power supply options, provides wide operating temperature range, -40 to 75 degree Celsius, to handle severe conditions. It comes with "α-ring" features that provide excellent redundancy with recovery time less than 15 milliseconds.

"IEC61850 is the trend since it ensures accurate functionalities on implementing control, protection and monitoring tasks in a power system, " said Louis Chen, Product Manger, EtherWAN. EtherWAN teamed up with IEC61850/IEEE1613 hardened-grade Media Converter, EL1141, as a complete application for substations. EtherWAN's SE5300, Industrial 2/4 ports Serial Device Server, emphasizes DNP 3.0 transparent that can be compatible with legacy in the utility industry. EtherWAN continues to provide a higher level of reliability on utility, power grid and substations that go above and beyond the industry's standards. "EtherWAN's Media Converters and Serial Device Servers have successfully become part of solutions in renewable energy sites and power substations around the world. More opportunities continuously emerge. We have a very promising product roadmap to keep this momentum in this new yet growing market," said Maggie Chao, Associate VP of Sales& Marketing, EtherWAN.

IEC61850/IEEE 1613 products from EtherWAN include EX27000, EX29000, EX47000, EX70900, EX83000, EX87000, EX89000, and EL1141.
