VIZIMAX, a leader in controlled switching devices (CSDs), provides a unique solution to reduce switching transients when operating high and medium voltage circuit breakers. Recognized worldwide for its widespread expertise in this field, VIZIMAX is constantly innovating its range of products to facilitate the integration of its technologies for its customers.
Using its own communication gateway (RightWON) for many years to support the communication protocols used in the industry, VIZIMAX has decided to implement, natively in its SynchroTeq product line, the IEC 61850 communication protocol in order to meet an industry’s growing demand. Being a long-time partner of COPA-DATA, and assured of exceptional support, VIZIMAX has quickly integrated the standardized and certified components of COPA-DATA.
The products of the SynchroTeq family, now supplied with IEC 61850 support, are deployed on a large scale in several large public utilities and are part of many private power generation facilities, mainly wind and solar, in order to reduce inrush currents when energizing power transformers.
“The collaboration with COPA-DATA has made it possible to include in the SynchroTeq products the standardized IEC 61850 communication feature in a short time, with quality and performance assurance, while minimizing development risks”, Michel Mont-Briant, Senior Director (Products).
