MiCOM C264
Bay Controller

GE’s MiCOM C264 bay controller provides flexibility, reliability and ease of use. A combination of dual redundant fiber optic Ethernet, modular I/O, and an expandable design and extensive library of functions make the C264 the ideal solution for a wide array of applications in substation digital control systems.

Key benefits:

  • Flexible, modular, expandable design that supports many applications
  • Suitable for retrofitting and modernizing existing installations
  • Provides legacy and cutting edge communication interfaces
  • LCD graphical display for user-friendly local control, monitoring and maintenance
  • Proven solution with more than 30,000 units installed worldwide

Seamless modernization of existing installations

The C264 provides seamless integration with existing substation assets, thanks to its flexible interfaces and native expandability. Its powerful processing, communication and configuration facilities make it the ideal tool for upgrading substation supervision, automation and maintenance.

Innovative real-time automation schemes

MiCOM C264 enables innovative automation schemes thanks to extremely fast (event driven) Programmable Scheme Logic (PSL) and robust Programmable Logic Control (PLC).

Optimized engineering

The multifunctional capabilities of the C264 optimize system engineering, as fewer devices result in less wiring, training and maintenance.

C264 Explorer

Overview

The DS Agile C264 substation controller is a sophisticated solution supporting multiple applications and functions for substation control, communication, monitoring, protection, and automation. Flexibility, reliability and ease of use are among the top features required in a substation computer; the latest release of DS Agile C264 has these features and is equipped with a new generation CPU (CPU4v2) compatible with 64 Bits technology.

A combination of dual redundant fiber optic Ethernet, modular I/O, expandable design, and an extensive library of functions make the C264 the ideal solution for a wide array of applications in substation digital control systems.

Key Benefits

Applications

Two models are available within the C264 Bay Controller range:

C264 CPU3 This is under last-time buy. Orders for new greenfield substations or new projects may be placed until  31st May 2024 and will be fulfilled based upon availability. As an alternative, please refer to C264 CPU4.
C264 CPU4 remains available, with more processing power and memory capacity than CPU3, it has 6 Ethernet ports supporting protocols for redundant networking architecture. Enabled to communicate through several protocols and with flexibility to incorporate complex IEC 61131-3 soft logics.

DS Agile SCE

Key benefits:

The Configuration tool SCE is defined to handle all system structured data and to generate databases loaded on DS Agile System main equipment:

Engineering tool suite

The tool is designed to be used for several system pieces of equipment working together with their exchange communication data, or only one of them. For example, it can generate the database of a DS Agile C26x Standalone RTU.

The DS Agile SCE applications are mainly defined in the Application chapter (AP) of each DS Agile sub-system (DS Agile C26x, DS Agile Gateway). DS Agile aView configuration is described in the DS Agile Blend & Mimic Designer manual (Application chapter for the SCE part).

The Black/Silver front panel is offering a USB connector, the Virtual COM port (VCP) drivers from FTDI Chip manufacturer need to be installed.
