Generating an example aqs configuration file with aqs generator
In general, it is recommended to use the
aqs file loaded from the relay. But in case you have not yet received the
ordered relay and need to make protection configuration or want to get familiar
with a particular IED type and its functions it is possible to generate a
configuration file yourself by following these instructions.
to generate aqs-file
To generate a configuration
file you will need AQtivate setting
tool and a firmware file provided by
Start the process by starting up AQtivate
setting tool and navigating to Tools à Misc à Aqs
Then choose the provided firmware file,
pick a destination for the generated file and finally choose the device type
of aqs generator
AQS generator can generate files of all the
available device type but only with digital input, digital output and arc
protection cards. If an aqs file for IED type with any other cards (RTD&mA
input, Serial RS232 etc.) is needed please contact Arcteq technical support for assistance.
There are some limitations with the
generated an aqs file. The following features are not included when aqs file is
- Mimic and carousel design

Communication protocol signal map located in the aqs file
In case you are using one of the following communication protocols (DNP, IEC103, Modbus or SPA) you can find the signal mapping in the relays aqs-configuration file. The aqs file can be loaded and opened with AQtivate-setting tool. The signal maps ...
