Service Offerings

SCADA/HMI/Energy Management


SCADA systems use the real-time data provided by IEDs on the system to monitor and control the power system. SEL-customized SCADA systems offer streamlined access to valuable information, improved reliability and performance, and expanded power system management capabilities. We can work with your existing protection and automation products, or we can assist with specifying, setting, and installing additional equipment needed for your system.

Motor Protection

Condition Monitoring

Unplanned outages on expensive, critical, or long-lead equipment can create costly process outages. Condition-based monitoring (CBM) systems monitor the health of this equipment to provide equipment failure predictions. 


motorMAX Low-Voltage Motor Management and Protection System

motorMAX is the SEL smart motor control system for low-voltage motor control centers (MCCs). This scalable system includes protective relays, managed network switches, real-time automation controllers (RTACs), precise time sources, and machine interfaces for local and remote visualization and control. 

Distribution Network Automation


SEL DNA systems increase system operational efficiency and reduce operating costs to address increasing customer expectations for affordable and reliable electric service. SEL DNA technology combines fast protection with flexible automation and communications for a customized distribution automation solution that makes your system safer, more reliable, and more economical. These fast and efficient systems can automate all parts of the distribution grid. Use SEL ES to design and implement a complete DNA system that meets your specific requirements. 

Generator and Microgrid Synchronizing Systems

Synchronizing Systems

SEL ES can design and build conventional and advanced generator and microgrid synchronizing systems with automatic and manual synchronizing capabilities.
