StreamX is a comprehensive solution suite to the critical issues facing any asset owner and systems integrator StreamX Platform Brochure

The deployment of IEC 61850 within a utility inherently and critically needs management of the engineering process and coordination across multiple projects for consistent policy implementation.

StreamTools Engineering Management Tools

StreamTools manages the engineering process of (multiple) projects via a Web application dealing with the multi-engineer, multi-department, multi-organisation, multi-phase requirements of system engineering projects.

StreamTools also facilitates all configuration database maintenance operations (backup, user management, validations, etc.).

Requiring no software, it can be accessed from any workstation via the internet, respecting access rights and using an ultra-secure link.

Data are backed up in databases and exported in binary format files to the runtime modules.

Different data configuration versions and all additions, deletions and modifications are archived with a historical record, thereby providing a comprehensive overview of the evolution of a particular project and facilitating a flashback.

StreamTools uses advance security strategies at both user and data level to ensure total cohesion between projects and the operators who set up configurations.

StreamDesign System Configuration Tools

StreamDesign is the software module of the StreamX product which handles IEC 61850 compliant engineering functions for substations.

This complete product gives the user control over all stages of implementation based on standard IEC 61850: from the single line diagram to pre-configuration of IEDs via data management and documentation.
