IED management software

Eaton's IED Manager Suite (IMS) software  provides reliability, security and compliance for utility automation systems. It helps utilities manage configuration settings, passwords and firmware of the intelligent electronic devices (IEDs) used in substation and distribution automation systems. It reduces maintenance costs through secure remote access and helps comply with NERC CIP. IMS software is one of Eaton's grid automation system solutions.

Core features

  • Track IED inventory and log all changes
  • Develop compliance reports and auditable logs
  • Secure remote access
  • Manage device configuration settings, passwords, firmware and settings updates
  • Retrieve power system events, fault records, SOE and oscillography from protection relays and DFRs
  • Retrieve real-time operational data for asset monitoring and business intelligence

Secure, enterprise-wide data access

IMS supports IEDs from most vendors, including Eaton, SEL, GE and others. Not only does it integrate all IEDs into a cohesive, manageable whole, it also provides complete enterprise-wide access to operational and non-operational data in a highly secure environment.

IED asset management for substation automation

In addition to data access, the network infrastructure provides the capability to perform remote maintenance, significantly reducing costs. However, this introduces significant security risks that require industry-specific solutions in order to meet NERC CIP regulatory requirements. IMS provides field-proven solutions to maximize the capabilities of modern IEDs, while helping ensure NERC CIP compliance.

IED asset management for distribution automation

Devices are deployed in widely distributed geographical areas and maintenance often requires expensive truck rolls. Operations need to be performed simultaneously on large number of devices to change seasonal settings and perform firmware updates to address security or operational issues. Communications are often slow and failure prone, requiring multiple retries. IMS provides distribution operators with tools to automate the most time consuming maintenance operations.
