SECHERON’s SEPCOS range is a high-tech equipment that meets the most stringent safety requirements applicable to DC power transmission networks. It has been tested and approved for the railway substation environment according to the IEC60255 standard. SEPCOS is self-contained, modular, scalable and easily adaptable by software.
SEPCOS is a powerful electronic system, successor of SEPCOS-NG with optimized performance, used in DC switchgear, powering public transport systems such as metro, LRT, tramways, as well as mainline railroads.
Using straton technology for more than 10 years, SECHERON has integrated the latest version of the IEC 61850 protocol – a worldwide standard for communication in power generation and distribution – and has successfully passed the DNV GL (KEMA) certification.
straton for SEPCOS provides a wide choice of communication buses (Modbus-TCP, Modbus-RTU, Profibus, Profinet …) and power distribution protocols (IEC60870-5-104, DNP3.0, IEC61850) through flexible connectivity.
“Certifying a product line is a big challenge for a company and a step towards the future. Thanks to the straton tools and the support of STRATON AUTOMATION, we passed the certification for this evolution of the standard more serenely. After Edition 1 in 2014, SEPCOS is now certified by DNV GL for Edition 2, which allows us to provide a complete, secure and tailored solution to our customers.” – André Bouvier, Product Manager at SECHERON.
Modularity and flexibility are the major assets of SEPCOS. They have been developed to perfectly match customer needs, especially for different types and architectures of communication.
SEPCOS offers a high level of security with the integration of PRP (Parallel Redundancy Protocol) and HSR (High availability Seamless Redundancy) features defined in IEC 62439-3.
These options are available for both fiber and RJ45 connections.
