Until now the TESLA 4000 has been offered as Model 4000 and Model 4003 to address different customer needs. We have now consolidated both models into one. This consolidation enables us to provide better service and upgrades to all customers, and at the same time continue to cater to different customer needs.

TESLA 4000 Power System Recorder with CDR, PMU and IEC 61850 station bus protocol

TESLA 4000 Multi-timeframe Power System Recorder

TESLA 4000 is an easy-to-use and cost effective, state-of-the-art, multi-time frame (simultaneous) power system monitoring recorder. Its integrated Phasor Measurement Unit (PMU) functionality streams synchrophasor data for wide area monitoring. Enabled with IEC 61850 protocol, TESLA has advanced communication capabilities that, together with its powerful recording features, provide the most versatile and complete monitoring of power system health.

With over 1000 user definable triggers, TESLA creates records simultaneously in 3 time domains (fault (fast), swing (slow) and trend records), and also creates event logs. The CDR creates continuous records without triggers which, together with the fault, swing and trend records, provide wide area visibility of system performance. The CDR also creates redundancy in PMU data.

TESLA has 256 virtual inputs to record digital status changes contained in IEC 61850 GOOSE messages, expanding its monitoring capabilities.

TESLA 4000 is available as "Model 4003" for applications not requiring PMU capability and IEC 61850. Model 4003 does not have IEC 61850 communications and has only one rear copper Ethernet port. A 12 Phasor PMU is available as an option.


  • Complete integrated insight of power system health
  • Performance monitoring of substation IEDs and equipment
  • Over 1000 user settable triggers capture vital information that could be missed by relays in the system
  • Information provided for wide area monitoring (WAMS) and analysis
  • As a PMU, streams 36 phasors, 12 analog quantities, and 64 digital statuses simultaneously
