SIPROTEC 3/4 central operation via Ethernet Serial-Hub
7XV5655
General
The serial hub and the associated configuration software may be used to serially operate SIPROTEC
protection devices with a PC or Notebook PC and DIGSI 4 via an Ethernet network. The
configuration software installs virtual serial interfaces (COM-Ports) on the operating PC. Each COMport is assigned with a serial hub and fixed IP address in the network. This IP address must be set in
the serial hub. The connection of the PC to the network is done via the Ethernet interface. The
protection devices are connected to the serial hub via an RS232/RS485 or FO – interface. The
connection with DIGSI 4 is established via the virtual COM-port on the PC and the IP-address of the
serial hub in the substation. The serial data are packed as user data into the Ethernet protocol on the
PC and transferred to the serial hub via the Ethernet connection. The requirement of a standard
conforming gap-free transmission of serial DIGSI or IEC 60870-5-103/101 telegrams via the network
is complied with by the communication driver on the PC as well as the serial hub listening into the
serial telegram traffic. The serial IEC telegrams are transmitted via the Ethernet in complete blocks.
The data traffic of the serial interface via RS232 and FO is full duplex. In the case of RS485 it is half
duplex. The control lines of RS232-interfaces are not supported.
The example describes the operation of V3 protection devices with FO interface and SIPROTEC 4
devices on a RS485-Bus in a private network, each via a serial hub with DIGSI 4.
The operating PC and the Ethernet serial hub are all located in a subnet (network segment).
The direct connection of a SIPROTEC 4 device with Ethernet module (EN 100) is not described here.
NOTE: This application aid only serves as additional user information and requires knowledge of the
general guidelines for the operation of the product as well as its basic functions as described in the
manual.

Install configuration tool (Configtool).
o
Define IP-addresses in the PC.
Setting serial hubs with the configuration tool
o
Setting the basic data (IP-address, name, password) of the serial hub.
o
Connecting the-PC and Ethernet-Hubs to the Ethernet.
o
Setting the communication parameters of the serial hubs (TC57, RS485, etc.).
Establishing a connection to the protection devices
o
Start making the connection
o

Installing the Configtool on the operating PC
The Configtool must be installed on the operating PC using the available CD.
Details on how this is done are included in the manual.
Note: In our Download-Area in the Internet under www.siprotec.com / Accessories /
7XV5655 you may find current updates regarding the Configtool as well as a new Firmware
Version for downloading.
Setting an IP-Address for the operating PC
A fixed IP address should be set in the operating PC. In this application the IP-address
192.168.10.100 with the subnet-mask 255.255.255.0 was set.
If the operating PC is connected to a company network with automatic IP allocation (DHCP),
the IP address of the network segment (here 192.168.10.xxx) must be known. The fixed IP
addresses of the serial hub must then accordingly be set and made available by the network
administrator.
Note: The serial hub does not support DHCP, and requires a fixed and unique IP address in
the network.

Setting serial hubs with the Configtool
A factory pre-setting is loaded on all serials hubs, which must be adapted to the various applications.
This is done with a Configtool on an operating PC which is connected to the serial hub with a crossed
patch cable.
After connecting auxiliary voltage to the serial hub, and connecting it to the operating PC with the
crossed patch cable, the configuration tool is started. The serial hub should be identified immediately
after the start and the delivery settings should be displayed (see below).
If more than one serial hub is connected in the same network segment to a switch with an uncrossed
patch cable, they are all displayed in the Configtool. In the figure below two devices are displayed
with their pre-settings. They are differentiated by their unique MAC addresses, which are firmly set by
the manufacturer and cannot be changed.
The setting of the two serial hubs is done with the Configtool on an operating PC,
which is also connected to the switch with an uncrossed patch cable.
Note:
In these examples fixed IP addresses are allocated to the operating PC:
IP-address: 192.168.10.100 / subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

Allocating the IP-address and name to the serial hub 1
Each device, also the Ethernet serial hub must be allocated with an own, unique IP address in a
private network (LAN) or public network (WAN).
In a subnet mask 255.255.255.0 the first 3 blocks if the IP address in the subnet mask (network
segment) must be identical, the last block may be between 1 and 254.
Click on the pre-set IP address (10.10.5.1) with the right mouse button
A selection box opens.
In the selection box, select „Set IP“ and enter the new IP-address, e.g 192.168.10.153 and confirm
with “OK”.
In the selection box select „Set Name“ and enter a name, e.g. East–Hub 1 (V4); confirm with “OK”.
When the settings are confirmed with “OK“, these are saved in the serial hub.
The information window is automatically updated and the serial hub is displayed with its new settings.
After a new start of the Configtool the serial hub is located with its current settings and displayed. In
the columns “Ping OK” and “in local Net” the message “True” means that the serial hub is now
located in the same network segment as the operating PC and is answering to a “Ping”. The column
“Logged in” is “True” means that other parameters may now be set without entering a password (see
the following chapters).

In this application, all serial hubs used in the network, as well as all protections devices can be
operated with the “Station PC” and DIGSI 4.
If SIPROTEC 4 protection devices with fast communication and “slow” V3 protection devices
(e.g. 7SD600) are used together in one substation, 2 serial hubs may be used to establish
a separation of these two systems, to reach the optimum operational performance for each device.
Setting the protection devices V4 with serial hub 1 “East-Hub1 (V4)“
All protection devices connected to the RS485 bus, must have unique (different) device addresses.
The data format (e.g. 8N1) and the baudrate (e.g. 57,6 kB) must be the same for all devices.
The maximum baudrate is accordingly designated by the slowest device
Setting the protection devices V3 with serial-Hub 2 “East-Hub3 (V3)“:
All protection devices connected to the star-coupler or RS485 bus must have unique (different)
device addresses.
The data format (e.g. 8E1) and the baudrate (e.g. 9,6 kB) must be the same for all devices.
The maximum baudrate is accordingly designated by the slowest device
The data format set with DIGSI 4 and the baudrate for each protection device are transmitted to the
serial hub for communication when the connection is made.

The Fixed Frame length remains at 2 byte.
In the RS232-window, all available virtual COM-ports of
the operating PC are displayed for selection.
A maximum of 254 COM-ports are available is these are
not occupied by other applications (e.g. USB-interfaceAdapter).
The selected Com-port (here COM 11) is saved on the
operating PC and allocated to the IP address of the
serial hub.
As all V4 protection devices are operated via the RS485
interface at the RS485 bus, and as the DIGSI protocol
only has to operate in the half-duplex mode, the Half
Duplex (RS485) button must be checked.
No change is required for the settings under Timeouts.

Creating a project and substation in DIGSI 4
SIPROTEC devices
are integrated in a
clear and transparent
structure in DIGSI 4.
This structure may be
substation oriented, but
may in addition be
V3/V4 device oriented.
The serial hubs do not
have to be created in
DIGSI 4 nor do they
need to be taken into
consideration in any
way.
Establishing a connection via a serial hub
By double-clicking on the desired protection device (here the SIPROTEC 4 device 7SJ63), a dialog
box is opened (see below).
The connection type “Direct“ via COM port
11 (which was assigned to the serial hub in
the Configtool) is selected.
If the operation takes place via the service
interface, “back” must be selected under
“device interface”.
Note: Before the connection to the protection device is established, the communication parameters
(baudrate and data format) of the protection device interface (here service interface back) are
automatically transmitted to the serial hub by DIGSI.
The allocation of COM-ports to the serial hubs cannot be displayed in DIGSI. The most recent
selection is however saved in DIGSI. A reference list with COM-port, IP address and assigned name
is displayed in the Configtool under “Port-Assignment” for this operating PC, and may be used as a
reminder. Additionally the user may individually create a table for himself (e.g. in Excel).
