In August 2013, after successful IEC 61850 conformance tests - level A on 13 protection relays manufactured by VAMP Ltd. - member of Schneider Electric, our customer from Finland received new conformance certificates issues by KEMA Nederland BV on behalf of the UCA IUG (VAMP 257 and VAMP 259, VAMP 5x series, VAMP2xx series).

In all certified devices the IEC 61850 server interface was implemented by INFO TECH using the INFO TECH IEC 61850 Software Library. Compared to products versions from 2011, the data models and the sets of supported communication services were extended. The tests were carried by KEMA testers hosted in the INFO TECH premises in Gdansk during 22-30 July 2013.
