DM1200, DM2000 C37.94 Inter-operability confirmed by AVARA
After many months of development and testing, AVARA Technologies has confirmed that DEWAR teleprotection relays incorporating C37.94 fibre optic interfaces are fully compatible with the current versions of AVARA multiplexers. All DEWAR teleprotection relays with C37.94 capability, including DM1200, DM2000 and ZIV TPU units, have been tested.
A number of units are already installed and operating in Western Australia, South Australia and Victoria.
The iSocket 3G will be available from Dewar in September 2016
The Dewar DM1200 Teleprotection unit now features a fully compliant C37.94 optical interface.
Options available are 850 Nm multi-mode, 1310 Nm multi mode and single mode and 1550 Nm single mode.
As part of the fibre optic upgrade Dewar has incorporated a LAN port which allows users to configure the DM1200 remotely via their network. Dewar are also pleased to re-lease a new version of the DM1200 Talk configuration software which incorporates mouse driven commands, making it much easier to configure a DM1200 unit.
Please note that these units have been fully tested with the AVARA C37.94 MUX cards which are commonly used by Australian utilities.

Dewar Electronics Pty. Ltd. is the Australian agent for HC Electric Corporation, Taiwan. Dewar import HC electrical measurement transducers, power meters and smart meter test benches. HCE test equipment’s factory is in mainland China.
Recently Dewar was involved in the successful smart meter test bench installation in Tasmania.
Prior to the delivery into Tasmania, Delia Jones & Dennis Troon from Dewar attended the factory acceptance testing. This is what Delia said about the trip:
“The test bench factory is huge! Our small order for Australia was miniscule compared to the sea of test benches being made for use within China and India. The production team and the export sales manager were very helpful and looked after us exceptionally well. We met up again with the engineer who was to come to Tasmania. He had come out to Australia previously with the Victorian test bench installation. He did a fantastic job. While we saw him, he showed us videos of a new installation by them into a factory in China. The placing of meters on and off the test benches was performed by robots. That was amazing to view.”
In Tasmania two benches were installed, commissioned and training carried out on-site. A three phase test bench and a single phase test bench were supplied. With the smart meter roll out in Australia, these test benches are ideal to do batch percentage checks of volume deliveries of specified smart meters.
At the beginning of a new project a lot of time is required to be spent making sure everything the customer wants is designed into the bench. Once all the parameters are locked down and agreed with, the delivery and installation becomes quite an easy task, causing no-stress to the new test bench owners. The Tasmanian installation went so smoothly we completed the tasks a day earlier and everyone involved was happy with the result. The engineer has left Australia with a slight Aussie accent now and is looking forward to coming back for more installation projects with Dewar.
