EtherNet/IP™ Server to IEC 61850 Dual Port Client Gateway


The ProSoft Technology® EtherNet/IP™ to IEC 61850 communication gateway allows Rockwell Automation® PACs to interface with IEC 61850 Intelligent Electronic Devices (IED) such as substation power monitors and relays. The gateway acts as an IEC 61850 Client polling the devices on your network.

The two ports allow the IEC 61850 and EtherNet/IP™ protocols to reside on separate subnets.

Características y Beneficios

  • The supplied configuration software enables you to import all of your relevant IED tags into your Logix controller tag database reducing configuration time and errors
  • Multiple EtherNet/IP™ I/O connections give you large amounts of data to transfer in a real time environment
  • Standards-based identification of device types simplifies implementation and maintenance


Configuration is accomplished through the dedicated PLX82-EIP-61850 Configuration Manager software which can be downloaded from our website, The configuration utility automatically creates the Add-On Instruction to be used in RSLogix™ 5000/Studio 5000 and brings the data over as configured.

The gateway supports a Simple Network Time Protocol (SNTP/NTP) client service that can synchronize the gateway’s time by periodic update requests to a Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) system. The user can configure the SNTP/NTP server details in ProSoft 61850 Configuration Manager. The resolution of the time is in milliseconds (ms).



Configurable Parameters
