SEL-3560 Real-Time Automation Controller (RTAC)

Unmatched performance for all your automation and control needs.

  • Compact industrial controller is built to withstand harsh environments in utility substations, industrial control systems, and automation systems.
  • Multicore processing handles automation and integration for small and large projects.
  • Powerful real-time operating system ensures deterministic and uninterrupted automation for all critical applications.
  • Optional integrated web human-machine interface (HMI) with a local display port eliminates the need for an additional computer.
  • Robust cybersecurity is engineered throughout the system architecture.
  • Supports 100,000 tags.


Note: Beginning with the RTAC R144-V2 firmware released on February 18, 2019, the BIOS upgrade is included and managed with the firmware. If you own an SEL-3560 with firmware older than R144-V2, you can upgrade the BIOS by downloading the “SEL-3360 BIOS Update” package on the SEL-3360 webpage. Installation instructions for the SEL-3560 are available in the README.txt file included in the download.


Fast, Deterministic Processing
A quad-core Intel Xenon 2.0 GHz processor provides powerful and deterministic processing rates as low as 1 millisecond.

Integrated HMI
Connect Digital Visual Interface (DVI) or DisplayPort interfaces for high-definition viewing or control of local HMI diagrams. HTML5 graphics provide support for additional browsers and enhanced graphics.

Cybersecure Using Exe-GUARD Technology
Exe-GUARD whitelist anti-malware technology provides increased security, making the SEL-3560 the first product in the market to include a whitelist antivirus solution that does not require end-user patch updates.

Renowned SEL Reliability
The RTAC is designed and tested to meet or exceed IEEE 1613 and protective relay specifications for harsh environments and to withstand vibration, electrical surges, fast transients, and extreme temperatures. The SEL RTAC operates reliably, even in challenging environments.

Concentrate and manage data from new and legacy relays and other IEDs by using our extensive set of protocols.
