Axon Comtrade

Axon Comtrade - Automatic electrical protection collection system

Axon Comtrade is a remote protection reading system that allows the automatic collection of configuration files, fault logs and events, based on document formats such as COMTRADE (IEEE Std C37.111 1999, 2013) or COMFEDE (IEEE C37.239-2010 – IEEE Standard for Common Format for Event Data Exchange for Power Systems), from devices such as Protection Relays, fault recorders or any other type of information concentrators. It uses the communication protocols: IEC 61850 MMS File Transfer, FTP, TFTP, as well as Modbus and SEL Fast Message by serial media.

Axon Comtrade supports a hierarchical communication structure that facilitates the aggregation of information at different levels. Once the information is collected, Axon Comtrade stores and processes the collected files through rules that allow the structuring and arranging of them via FTP for use by other services. It also has notification modules via email and IEC 60870-5-104 server in the case of new events. 

Additionally, Axon Comtrade includes visualization tools that allow exploration and analysis of the event log data by means of analog, digital, phasor, harmonic, polar and frequency chart types. In addition, it has a Scripts module that allows the extension of its functional scope.

Key Features


  1. File Transfer Protocol (FTP, FTPS)
  2. Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP)
  4. DNP3 Serial / TCP / UDP
  6. SEL Fast Message


Captures, processes, and manages fault events such as COMTRADE, protection settings, event log, by establishing a remote reading with the devices through IEC61850 File Transfer, FTP, TFTP for TCP connections, and Modbus, IEC 60870-5-103, and SEL Fast Message for serial connections. Ensuring interoperability for different equipment manufacturers.


You have doubts? Solve them here.

With the manual discovery process, a copy of the information is made with the same structure delivered by the IED. With the automatic collection process, the user defines what information interests them and how to organize it through the rules.

E-mail notifications and information reporting are available through the IEC 60870-5-104 protocol with digital signals which indicate if you have new data.

Yes, we are independent of the client device brand and for this we use FTP, TFTP, IEC 61850-FT communication protocols.
