Evolution of the SEPCOS range

An up-graded version of our SEPCOS protection and control unit for DC traction substations with optimized performances is now available. SEPCOS is used in DC switchgears feeding public transport systems such as Tramways, Trolleybus, Metros, LRT, Monorails, Commuter trains, Main line railways…

All intelligent cards of this new electronic system are equipped with powerful microprocessors: CPU with VORTEX86MX+ and others with STM32F4 ARM Cortex M3. The A/D converter of the 4 analogue inputs is a high performance 16-bit.

Oled matrix display modules are provided on main cards for indication of status and diagnostic.

Locally, a user-friendly interface is associated through a high resolution 7”color display, capacitive dual touch screen allowing an easy navigation similar to a modern Smartphone. This device is equipped with several LED related to dynamic labels (color and text). Trends: analogue inputs are permanently recorded in order to show the evolution of currents and voltages during several days. All protection curves and 5’000 events are recorded and accessible at any time.

Remotely, the same visualizations and parameterizations functions are available through an i-Web Server

SEPCOS propose a wide choice of communication bus (Modbus-TCP, Modbus-RTU, Profibus, Profinet …) and modern protocols (IEC60870-5-104, DNP3.0, IEC61850) through a flexible connectivity with either copper cables (3xRJ45 with internal switch) or optical fiber.

SEPCOS’s development is based on the safety requirements of the railways standards EN50126, EN50128 and EN50129.
