Features & functions

Bay controller SIPROTEC 6MD85

Bay controller for medium voltage and high to extra-high voltage switchgear with integrated operation and extensive protection functions. Powerful automation, simple configuration with DIGSI 5
Brief description

Main function: Inputs and outputs

Inputs and outputs:

  • 5 predefined standard variants with 4 current transformers,
    4 voltage transformers,
    11 to 75 binary inputs,
    9 to 41 binary Outputs

Hardware flexibility:

  • Flexibly adjustable and expandable I/O quantity structure within the scope of the SIPROTEC 5 modular system. For great requirements placed on the quantity structure, the device can be extended in the second row. For example, this permits an additional 240 binary inputs (and more) to be used with the IO230 (see chapter "Hardware")

Housing width:

  • 1/3 × 19" to 2/1 × 19"

  • Auxiliary functions for simple tests and commissioning
  • Flexibly adjustable I/O quantity structure within the scope of the SIPROTEC 5 modular system
Applications

Applications

Application templates

 

The SIPROTEC 6MD85 bay controller is a general-purpose control and automation device with protection function on the basis of the SIPROTEC 5 system.

The standard variants of the SIPROTEC 6MD85 are delivered with instrument transformers. Furthermore, protection-class current transformers are also possible in SIPROTEC 6MD85 so that protection functions can be used. 

Due to its high flexibility, it is suitable as selective protection equipment for overhead lines and cables with single-ended and multi-ended infeed with two ends when protection communication is used. The device supports all SIPROTEC 5 system properties. It enables future-oriented system solutions with high investment security and low operating costs.

 

Application templates are available in DIGSI for standard applications. They comprise all basic configurations and default settings.

 

The following application templates are available:

 

Standard

  • Double-busbar feeder with switchgear interlocking

Extended control

  • Additionally to 6MD85 standard, this includes the CFC blocks for switching sequences and arithmetic
  • Switching sequence for automatic busbar transfer preconfigured (started by function key).Switching sequence for automatic busbar transfer preconfigured(started by function key)
