3.1 EnerVista 650 Setup software
The EnerVista 650 Setup software provides a graphical user interface (GUI) as one of two direct interfaces with a 650
device. The alternate interface is implemented via the device faceplate keypad and display (see the Human Machine
Interface (HMI) section in this chapter).
The EnerVista 650 Setup software interface provides access to configure, monitor, maintain, and trouble-shoot the
operation of relay functions, connected over local or wide area communication networks. It can be used while
disconnected (offline) or connected (online) with a 650 device. In offline mode, settings files can be created for eventual
download to the device. In online mode, real-time communication with the device is supported.
The EnerVista 650 Setup software, provided with every F650 relay, can be run from a computer supporting Microsoft
Windows XP(SP 2 or 3), Windows 7 or Windows 8. This chapter provides a summary of the basic EnerVista 650 Setup
software interface features. The EnerVista 650 Setup Help File provides details for getting started and using the EnerVista
650 Setup software interface.
The EnerVista 650 Setup software package uses ModBus protocol, and is designed to communicate with a single relay at a
time. GE offers different communication software packages, such as GE-POWER, which can be used to communicate
simultaneously with several relays.
EnerVista 650 Setup software provides an easy way to configure, monitor and manage all F650 features.
