Schneider Electric offers IEC 61850 IEDs

Schneider Electric provides IEC 61850 connectivity for their Sepam protection relays:

Sepam units can be connected to an IEC 61850 station bus by one of the following:

ECI850 Sepam server for:
  • Sepam series 20
  • Sepam series 40
  • Sepam series 80
ACE850 communication interface for:
  • Sepam series 40
  • Sepam series 80 only (available soon).
Sepam units with ECI850 and ACE850 are compliant with:
  • IEC 61850-6
  • IEC 61850-7-1
  • IEC 61850-7-2
  • IEC 61850-7-3
  • IEC 61850-7-4
  • IEC 61850-8-1

I couldn't find a better location for discussions on 61850. So i'm posting my query here.

Many of today's substation devices like protection relays, say that they are IEC61850 compatible. From a SCADA point-of-view what support is required to interface with such devices? As I understand, 61850 is mapped to the MMS protocol, which is not ideally suited for SCADA. Also, a mapping to 870-5-101/4 is underway. Then in the current scenario what should a SCADA vendor support in order to interface with 61850-compatible devices?

Many of today's substation devices like protection relays are IEC 61850 compatible - one way or the other. From a SCADA point-of-view these and other devices can easily interface with such devices using the client/server communication services: ...
