The increasing number of communication data points available in new substations and the use of new protocols such as IEC 61850 add more complexity in developing, commissioning and maintaining power automation systems.

Also, the lack of standardization of information complicates the maintenance and expansion procedures. This way, it is necessary to find innovative solutions able to handle and convert different protocols, provide high reliability systems and significantly reduce costs for substation automation.

Elipse Power HMI has special features for developing substation applications, providing local operation and remote access to the control center, while also working as a protocol gateway.

A powerful CAD tool for modeling the electrical system automatically generates SCADA’s operation screens, which reduces the configuring and comissioning times, as well as providing a more reliable and secure system configuration and operation.

This solution also preserves earlier investments, because of the ease of integration with any protocol or legacy equipment.

Elipse Power Concept


  • Reduces engineering and maintenance costs.
  • Reduces commissioning costs.
  • Provides a secure and reliable operation.
  • Preserves earlier investments.


  • The electrical system model is designed using an integrated Power CAD Editor that automatically generates operation diagrams and equipment structure based on IEC 61970-CIM model.
  • The Topology Processor algorithm running over the electrical model automatically animates operation diagrams with no need for programming.
  • The TagBrowser automatically imports tags from the IEDs through IEC 61850, drastically reducing configuration time when setting communication tags.
  • Templates allow configuring command types, measurements and colors in a single interface for all system devices.
  • A unified interface for configuring HMI and gateway reduces engineering and commissioning costs.
  • Protocols available: IEC 61850, IEC 60870-5-101/102/103/104, DNP3, ICCP, among others.
