1    “PLC Protocol Variables” is defined as the set of RX3i controller variables which represent the IEC 61850 protocol data attributes in a structured format in a variable list. This typically includes the additional variables which are required to perform “WRITE” operations to an IED. See section 3.3.9 Generate PLC Protocol Variables (PPVs) for each ECM850, for more details.

2 The polling rate for each IED connection can be configured by the IEC 61850 Configurator. ECM850 also supports unsolicited communication using report control blocks (RCB). The RCB can be used for faster updates irrespective of polling rate, based on RCB trigger options. The configuration of polling rate and RCBs is described in Chapter 3, and polling mechanisms are described in section 4.3 ECM850 I/O Scan Mechanism.

For product standards, general operating specifications, and installation requirements, refer to the PACSystems RX3i System Manual, GFK-2314.
