Introduction

Overview

FYI, this map is shared with EIFE User Guide and Masterpact MTZ Modbus guide.

The EIFE embedded Ethernet interface for one MasterPact MTZ drawout circuit breaker (or EIFE interface) enables one MasterPact MTZ drawout circuit breaker to be connected to an Ethernet network.

It provides digital access to all the data delivered by the MicroLogic X control unit of the MasterPact MTZ circuit breaker. It provides information about the intelligent modular unit (IMU) system. In addition, it monitors the three positions of the circuit breaker when inserted in its cradle:

  • Cradle connected

  • Cradle disconnected

  • Cradle test position

EIFE Interface Features

The main features of EIFE interface are:

  • Dual 10/100 Mbps Ethernet port for simple daisy chain connection

  • Device profile web service for discovery of the EIFE interface on the local area network (LAN)

  • Ethernet interface for MasterPact MTZ drawout circuit breakers

  • Embedded settings webpages

  • Embedded monitoring and control webpages

  • Embedded diagnostics webpages

  • Embedded security webpages

  • Cradle status management (CE, CD, and CT)

  • Built-in email alarm notification

  • IEC 61850 interface for MasterPact MTZ drawout circuit breakers

EIFE Webpage Sessions

Maximum of 8 HTTP sessions are supported. Once the HTTPS is enabled, only 4 HTTPS sessions are supported at the same time.

EIFE Firmware Versions

This guide describes the webpages for two different firmware versions of EIFE interface:

  • Chapter 2 describes the EIFE interface webpages for the firmware version 004 and later.

  • Chapter 3 describes the EIFE interface webpages for the firmware versions up to 003.

EIFE Interface Supported Protocols

The EIFE interface supports the following Ethernet protocols:

  • Modbus TCP/IP: Modbus TCP/IP is a protocol, which provides master/slave communication between devices and TCP/IP that provides communications over an Ethernet connection. Modbus TCP/IP is used to exchange data between EIFE interface and other compatible Modbus TCP/IP devices through TCP port 502.

  • Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP): HTTP is a network protocol that handles delivery of files and data on the World Wide Web. It provides web server functionality through TCP port 80. Remote configuration of EIFE interface and viewing of diagnostic data is possible using a web browser.

  • Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS): HTTPS is a variant of the standard web transfer protocol (HTTP) that adds a layer of security on the data in transit through a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol connection. HTTPS enables encrypted communication and secure connection between a remote user and the EIFE interface. It provides web server functionality through TCP port 443.

  • File Transfer Protocol (FTP): FTP is a network protocol that provides the ability to transfer files over the Internet from one computer to another.

    The FTP protocol is used by the CET850 configuration software tool to upload the IEC 61850 configuration files to the EIFE file system.

  • File Transfer Protocol Secure (FTPS):

    FTPS is a variant of the standard File Transfer Protocol (FTP) that adds a layer of security on the data in transit through a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol connection. FTPS enables encrypted communication and secure connection between a remote user and the EIFE interface.
  • Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP): Based on MIB2 format, SNMP provides the ability to store and send identifying and diagnostic information used for network management purposes through UDP port 161.

  • Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP EcoStruxure Power Commission Software): RSTP is a network protocol that ensures a loop-free topology for Ethernet networks.It is the advanced version of Spanning Tree Protocol, is a link layer protocol executed within bridges or switches.

  • Devices Profile for Web Services (DPWS): DPWS defines a minimal set of implementation constraints to enable secure web service messaging, discovery, description, and eventing on resource-constrained devices.

  • Network Time Protocol (NTP): NTP is a networking protocol for clock synchronization between computer systems over packet-switched, variable-latency data networks.

  • IEC 61850 Protocol: IEC 61850 is a standard for communication networks and systems in substations. Based on Ethernet protocol, it is a standardized method of communication developed to support integrated systems, composed of multi-vendor, self-describing Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs). These systems are networked together to perform real-time protection, control, measurement, and monitoring functions.

NOTE: HTTPS, FTPS, RSTP, NTP, and IEC 61850 protocols are applicable only from EIFE interface firmware version higher than version 004.000.000.
