VCL-TP, Teleprotection with IEC-61850 GOOSE interface over C37.94 (Optical) / E1 interface

Description

VCL-TP, Teleprotection with IEC-61850 GOOSE interface over C37.94 (Optical) / E1 interface is an extremely reliable and flexible product that is available with 1+1 Link Redundancy (E1 + C37.94) or (C37.94 + C37.94), 1+1 Power Supply and 8, Digital Trip Counter Display Panel with 8 user configurable External Relay Alarm extensions. 1+1 redundant protection switching / route protection is available between C37.94 optical and E1 interfaces with automatic switchover to redundant link in the event of the failure of the primary link.

VCL-TP, Teleprotection Equipment may be used independently, in a standalone point-to-point application, or as an integral extension of the VCL-MX Version 6, E1 Voice and Data Multiplexer solution to provide Teleprotection over SDH or PDH data networks.
