Sentinel 21 Family of Substation and Feeder Automation Products.pdf

Sentinel-21 Family Common Software Elements 

QEI’s Sentinel-21 substation products all use one set of common, compatible elements, making them easy to put into service, to maintain, and to upgrade.

• One common 32 bit Motorola CPU
• One common Operating System
• One common set of Client & Server communication protocol software
• One common Windows-based ConfigWiz-Plus® configuration program
• One common Programmable Logic Control & Communication (PLCC) language
• One common embedded Test Set software application

QEI’s Sentinel-21 Processors can be configured to support multiple Master Stations and IED protocols, and to intelligently route data between Master Stations and Substation devices:

• A selectable library of Master Station (Server) and IED (Client) protocols
• Configurable routing of data between multiple server and client communication ports
• Embedded Real-Time Operating System with high data throughput and minimal latency
• Expandable serial and Ethernet communication ports

Windows ConfigWiz-Plus® Software and
Master Database Auto-Import back
ConfigWiz-Plus® is a Windows-based program to configure Sentinel-21 processors: ePAQ-9100, 6CPP6. 6ACP5, and 6DIO. Drag and drop menus configure a Sentinel-21 processor’s modular software for communication with Master Stations and with a growing suite of industry standard Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs) in the substation. ConfigWiz-Plus® selectively maps IED (client) and Master Station (server) data points to each other through a communication switching fabric that is the core of the Sentinel-21 processors software. And, ConfigWiz-Plus® files can be directly imported into a QEI TDMS-Plus Master Station point database.

ConfigWiz-Plus® prompts the technician through the steps of configuring a Sentinel-21 processor:

• Configure communication port parameters
• Select and configure Master Station Server communication protocols
• Select IED Client communication protocols
• Map data points between IED Client and Master Station Server databases

ConfigWiz-Plus® tools automate the process and facilitate documentation of the results:

• IED client files can be installed from a library of pre-configured IED templates
• Automatically upload configuration data and point descriptions from SEL Relays using FastMeter
• Defaults Parameters sufficient for the initial operation of most systems
• Online Tool Tips appear when the cursor is placed over buttons or data entry points
• View Components windows to examine configuration data and print the results
• Export configuration files into word processor, spreadsheets, or a QEI TDMS-Plus Master database.
