The SEL-3060 is a multipurpose Ethernet radio for distribution automation wireless applications, including supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and engineering access. The SEL-3060A provides communications within a 15-mile range, operating in the 900 MHz license-free ISM frequency band. The SEL-3060B has a 10-mile range and operates in the 2.4 GHz license-free ISM band. The SEL-3060 offers unmatched ruggedness and is backed by SEL’s ten-year, worldwide product warranty.
Distribution Automation—Communicate to voltage regulator controls, capacitor bank controls, meters, motorized switches, and recloser controls. SEL-3060 Ethernet Radios can be used for control, IEC 61850 Generic Object-Oriented Substation Event (GOOSE) messaging, engineering access, SCADA, metering, and synchrophasor data.
Surveillance Video—Transmit video from a substation surveillance camera to a digital video server in the control enclosure using an SEL-3060 link to avoid digging trenches for cabling.
Substation Communications Link—Create a primary or backup communications link between substations using a pair of SEL-3060 Ethernet Radios. SEL-3060A Radios use the 900-MHz, ISM band and can operate up to 15 miles apart, while SEL-3060B Radios use the 2.4-GHz, ISM band and can operate up to 10 miles apart. For greater distances, connect two collocated SEL-3060 Radios to act as a repeater.
15 miles using point-to-point mode, 10 miles using point-to-multipoint mode for the SEL-3060A. 10 miles point-to-point mode, and 7 miles point-to-multipoint mode for the SEL-3060B.
1 Mbps data rate, with 6–12 ms latency for IEC 61850 GOOSE messages using point-to-point operation.
Accurate operation from –40º to +85ºC (–40º to +185ºF); exceeds IEEE 1613, IEEE C37.90, and IEC 60255 standards.

Radio Path Study
SEL provides radio link path study reports for up to five radios free of charge for the planned use of SEL radios. Customers gather the initial planning information to support the study. The path study gives a high degree of confidence that the link will work when installed.
For networks with more than five radios or full system design and implementation, SEL offers a service for a fee through SEL Engineering Services.
The SEL-3060A and SEL-3060B are approved for use by the governments of the following countries:
The SEL-3060A is also approved for use by the governments of Brazil and Trinidad and Tobago.
The SEL-3060B is also approved for use by the governments of Australia, Brunei, and New Zealand.
The Firmware IDs for older versions of the firmware can typically be found in Appendix A of the instruction manual.
