INGEPAC™ RIO equipment consists of input/output modules which allow one or more substation IEDs to interact remotely with primary elements in accordance with IEC 61850 standard.
INGEPAC™ RIO has physical inputs and outputs and Ethernet communication ports which allow it to perform the following functions:
- 12 digital inputs
- 4 digital outputs with potential-free contacts for opening and closing the associated element
- Reception of GOOSEs and opening and closure commands from protection and control IEDs
- GOOSE transmission to protection and control IEDs, reporting the element's status
- Transmission of RIO status information
INGEPAC™ RIO drastically reduces wiring and costs associated with traditional solutions, allowing you to access information on a process level element through one or more IEDs.
