The SIPROTEC 6MD86 bay controller is a universal control and automation device with a protection function. It is designed for use in all voltage levels from distribution to transmission. As a part of the SIPROTEC 5 family, it allows the use of a large number of protection functions from the SIPROTEC library. Adapt the hardware and the IO quantity structure exactly to your requirements and enable future-oriented system solutions with high investment security and low operating costs. Main function: Bay controller for medium voltage and high to extra-high voltage switchgear with integrated operation and comprehensive protection functions. Powerful automation, simple configuration with DIGSI 5. Inputs and outputs: 6 predefined standard variants with 8 current transformers, 8 voltage transformers, 11 to 75 binary inputs,9 to 41 binary Outputs. Hardware flexibility: Flexible 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 2nd row. For example, 240 (and more) binary inputs are possible with the IO230 (see Hardware section). Housing width: 1/3 × 19" to 2/1 × 19"
Main function: Inputs and outputs
Inputs and outputs:

The SIPROTEC 6MD86 bay controller is a universal control and automation device with a protection function based on the SIPROTEC 5 system.
The standard variants of the SIPROTEC 6MD86 are delivered with instrument transformers. Furthermore, protection-class current transformers are also possible in SIPROTEC 6MD86 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 infeeds 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.
