C60 Breaker Monitoring and Control / C95 Bay Control Unit for Substation and Industrial Automation
The C60 breaker and C95 bay controllers are a substation-hardened-devices that provide a complete integrated package for the protection, control, and monitoring of circuit breakers or bay. The C60 and C95 support dual-breaker busbar configurations such as breaker-and-a-half or ring bus arrangements. Signals from up to 4 sets of CT’s can be brought into the C60/C95 via conventional wiring or process bus for internal summation, which is advantageous by still having the individual currents available for metering and the additional protection elements that operate on individual currents.

Protection & Control
The C60 breaker and C95 bay controllers are a substation-hardened-devices that provides a complete integrated package for the protection, control, and monitoring of circuit breakers or bays. The C60/C95 support dual-breaker busbar configurations such as breaker-and-a-half or ring bus arrangements.

Monitoring & Diagnostic
The C60/C95 incorporate advanced automation features including powerful FlexLogic™ programmable logic, communication, and SCADA capabilities that far surpass what is found in the average breaker relay or controller. The C60/C95 integrate seamlessly with other UR relays for complete breaker management including reclosing, load shedding, and synchronism applications.
Complete IEC 61850 Process Bus solution providing resource optimization and minimizing total P & C life cycle costs
The C60/C95 provide advanced communications technologies for remote data and engineering access, making it easy and flexible to use and integrate into new and existing infrastructures. Direct support for fiber optic Ethernet provides high-bandwidth communications allowing for low-latency controls and high-speed file transfers of relay fault and event record information. The available three independent and redundant Ethernet options provide the means to create fault tolerant communication architectures in an easy, cost-effective manner.
The C60/C95 support the most popular industry standard protocols enabling easy, direct integration into DCS and SCADA systems.
Interoperability with Embedded IEC 61850
Use the C60/C95 with integrated IEC 61850 to lower costs associated with breaker or bay protection, control and automation. GE’s leadership in
IEC 61850 comes from thousands of installed devices and follows on years of development experience with UCA 2.0.
The C60’s IEC 61850 Process Bus module is designed to interface with the Multilin HardFiber System, allowing bi-directional IEC 61850 fiber optic communications. The HardFiber System is designed to integrate seamlessly with existing Universal Relay applications, including protection functions, FlexLogic, metering and communications. Learn More
The C60 can also connect to GE MU320 or third-party merging units using standard IEC 61869 or IEC 61850-9-2LE communication protocols.
Cyber Security - CyberSentry™ UR (FW v7.4xx)
CyberSentry enables UR devices to deliver full cyber security features that help customers to comply with NERC CIP and NITIR 7628 cyber security requirements through supporting the following core features:
Secure FW upgrade
UR FW files v7.9 and up now include a hash code that allows for authentication prior to being used for upgrading UR devices.
Supporting up to 20 alpha- numeric or special characters, UR passwords exceed NERC CIP requirements for password complexity. Individual passwords per role are available.
AAA Server Support (Radius)
Enables integration with centrally managed authentication and accounting of all user activities and uses modern industry best practices and standards that meet and exceed NERC CIP requirements for authentication and password management.
Role Based Access Control (RBAC)
Efficiently administrate users and roles within UR devices. The new and advanced access functions allow users to configure up to five roles for up to eight configurable users with independent passwords. The standard “Remote Authentication Dial In User Service” (Radius) is used for authentication.
Event Recorder (Syslog for SEM)
Capture all cyber security related events within a SOE element (login, logout, invalid password attempts, remote/local access, user in session, settings change, FW update, etc), and then serve and classify data by security level using standard Syslog data format. This enables UR devices integration with established SEM (Security Event Management) systems.
The EnerVista™ suite is an industry-leading set of software programs that simplifies every aspect of using the C60 / C95 controllers. The EnerVista™ suite provides all the tools to monitor the status of the protected asset, maintain the relay, and integrate information measured by the C60/C95 into DCS or SCADA monitoring systems. Convenient COMTRADE and Sequence of Events viewers are an integral part of the UR setup software included with every UR relay, to carry out postmortem event analysis and ensure proper protection system operation.
