IEC 61850 is presented in a clear way which can assist many different types of tests. Configuration of the tool can be done quickly. Settings are saved in a workspace that can easily be reloaded for a particular test or substation. Custom filters can be configured to accelerate the testing and debugging process.



Browse Multiple IEDs

Multiple IEDs in a substation can be browsed to easily find the data you need. The entire data model for the substation is parsed and filtered to only show the relevant data for the tests you are performing.

Filters can be customized for each test or job function. For example, protection related data that is available from GOOSE can be shown or switchgear status data from a particular set of IEDs can be displayed.



Intuitive Interface

Hammer and Anvil have been combined along with several other tools into a new user interface. It is now easier to navigate between tools and find the functionality for your tests.

Multiple IEDs can be viewed at the same time or you can dive into the “Advanced Client” view just like the original Hammer.

The “IED Simulator” allows you to simulate an IEC 61850 server just like the original Anvil.



Custom Displays

Custom displays can be created on the fly to view data available from GOOSE, reports, and polling in one view. The source of the data can be changed to create displays used during lab testing, commissioning, or maintenance testing. Data from multiple IEDs can be combined into a single display to visualize tests in the lab, during commissioning, or for maintenance testing.



GOOSE Testing

GOOSE messages across the entire substation can be viewed either as events or streams. GOOSE data events can be seen in an event log with time stamps, quality, and data values. GOOSE streams can be sniffed on the network to identify streams that are valid, misconfigured, simulated, or timed out. These different views allow GOOSE to be debugged much faster by helping to identify misconfigurations in GOOSE publishers or possibly the network configuration.


Logic Analzyer

Logic Analyzer (NEW)

The Logic Analyzer can be used to chart real time values from multiple IEDs in a substation.  The values shown in the logic analyzer can be retrieved from IEDs using GOOSE or reports.  The data values are charted using data timestamps or GOOSE message timestamps from the IEDs for the best accuracy possible.  Multiple charts can be acquired and saved as part of the workspace for viewing later or charts can be exported as data files.  Each chart can show up to eight data attributes which can come from either one IED or multiple IEDs. The logic analyzer also includes time cursors for measuring time deltas between events.
