ReLab Software Announces COMTRADE File Viewer for ClearView-SCADA

ReLab Software’s recently released ClearView-SCADA version 9.0.0.0 contains a new optional feature, Comtrade File Viewer. This feature is a new object that when installed in a project enables the user to view oscillographic records for system disturbances and faults from files in the Comtrade, C37.111 format, as shown in figure #1.

Automation of the Comtrade File collection from Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) can be achieved with the use of ReLabs’ OPC Server and IEC-61850 MMS driver that includes FTP File Transfer capabilities meeting IEC-61850-8-1 requirements. A user can configure ClearView-SCADA to automatically collect the Comtrade files from the IEDs when events occur. These files can be immediately displayed in ClearView-SCADA improving situational awareness and enabling faster assessments and corrective action. An example of an automated Comtrade File collection application is shown in Figure #2.
