Interoperability Testing in Bilbao

Flexibilis participated in an IEC 61850 and IEC 62439 technical interoperability testing. The test session was held in Bilbao, Spain, from 15th to 16th of July 2014.

The interoperability was tested between the devices of nine different companies: Flexibilis, Siemens Ruggedcom, General Electric, Schneider Electric, ZIV, NR Electric, OMICRON, System-on-Chip engineering (SoC-e) and Ingeteam Power Technology. Flexibilis tested FRS (Flexibilis Redundant Switch) and its HSR protocol and time synchronization IEEE 1588 features. Flexibilis devices operated greatly together with the devices of other vendors.

The purpose of the event was to prepare for CIGRE 2014, which will be held in Paris 25-29 August. The system pre-tested in Bilbao will be demonstrated at the UCA International Users Group booth. This time, there will be 21 companies participating, Flexibilis included.
