Siemens DIGITAL TWIN now allows access from users located in New Zealand.
This subscription service offers access to a Siemens website that features digital simulations of the full range of SIPROTEC 5 protection relay hardware. You can access any SIPROTEC 5 relay type, in any product configuration. That is, any combination of expansion modules, any number of function points or any significant feature combination. The Digital Twin uses the same operating system as the protection relays themselves, giving an ideal test ground for new settings - without the concern of adding another variable into your investigation. The DIGITAL TWIN supports relay firmware 7.8 onwards, with limited support for firmware back to 7.5.
Up to eight relays can be configured in a project. Binary connections between relays can be simulated for testing interlocking. A protection data interface between two relays can be simulated for two-ended line differential applications. GOOSE messaging can be routed between relays.
Advanced functions include VPN access to the DIGITAL TWIN to connect your DIGSI 5 software to the TWIN as if it were real hardware next to you. VPN access can also be used to connect a SCADA master to the DIGITAL TWIN SCADA interface for control and mapping testing. The DIGITAL TWIN even has a built-in simulated test current/voltage source for basic testing, with ability to upload Omicron State Sequencer files and play back COMTRADE files for more advanced testing.
Contact us for further details on the annual subscriptions. The DIGITAL TWIN does not support testing of serial or PTP protocols, and support for Process Bus is currently somewhat limited.
