Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL) released an update to its SEL Grid Configurator software, with visual and functional enhancements that will make it easier for users to configure and review device settings.
The update includes several enhancements to the software’s interface. Users can now connect to multiple devices in one click, streamlining the process of configuring entire substations. Right-click menus and links between protection element icons and their settings allow users to navigate directly to their work.
The work area itself is also brighter and more spacious, benefiting users on laptops and other portable devices. Rich views of each device’s protection elements and settings provide visual confirmation of enabled protection elements. Collapsible navigators and frames in the interface allow users to hide screen elements. Combined, the rich views and collapsible navigators allow users to maximize the information on their screen during device configuration without sacrificing readability.
