What is DIGSI 5? Introduction: Basic Overview

What is DIGSI 5?, -DIGSI 5 is the configuration and operation tool for all SIPROTEC 5 devices. Using DIGSI 5, you can create system topologies, configure hardware and communication networks, set function settings, and perform many further tasks. During the IEDs parametrization, you can also set the SNTP address for each IED for time synchronization.

You perform all configuration tasks offline from your PC without the need for a SIPROTEC 5 device. You transmit all data online to the SIPROTEC 5 device later on – for example, directly through a communication network.
