GE C60 | Breaker Protection System

GE C60 | Breaker Protection System

The C60 breaker protection system is a substation hardened controller that provides a complete integrated package for the protection, control, and monitoring of circuit breakers. The C60 supports 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 for internal summation.


  • Stand-alone breaker monitoring and control
  • Multiple breaker configuration control including breaker-and-a-half and ring bus
  • Automatic bus transfer scheme using a single device
  • As part of a distributed bay controller

Key Benefits

  • Complete breaker control, protection, monitoring and integration in a single platform
  • Advanced automation capabilities for providing customized protection and control solutions
  • Modular hardware architecture allows for flexibility in device configurations to cover most breaker applications
  • Three independent fiber or copper Ethernet ports for simultaneous/ dedicated network connections with advanced 1 microsecond time synchronization via LAN with IEEE® 1588 support
  • Reduced wiring through the use of high-speed peer-to-peer communication for accepting trip and close commands from other relays
  • Embedded IEC® 61850 protocol with no external communications hardware required
  • Phasor Measurement Unit (synchrophasor) according to IEEE C37.118 (2011) and IEC 61850-90-5 support
  • Simplified system integration with communications supporting serial, Ethernet and multiple protocols
  • Increase network availability by reducing failover time to zero through IEC 62439-3 "PRP" support
  • CyberSentry™ provides high-end cyber security aligned to industry standards and services (NERC® CIP, AAA, Radius, RBAC, Syslog)
  • Robust network security enabling Critical Infrastructure Protection through user command logging, and dual permission access control
  • Advanced fault and disturbance recording, including internal relay operating signals thus eliminating the need for external recording devices
  • Complete IEC 61850 Process Bus solution provides resource optimization and minimizes total P&C life cycle costs
