IPS-CAPE Bridge™

Integrating Asset Management and Protection

IPS-CAPE Bridge is a product developed jointly by Electrocon and IPS to facilitate the exchange of information between CAPE and the IPS software. Electrocon has always believed that the data used in CAPE should be made easily available to CAPE users; after all, the data belongs to our customers, not Electrocon. The IPS-CAPE Bridge requires a license from both IPS and Electrocon.


IPS-CAPE Bridge™ offers a variety of capabilities including:

IPS-SYSTEMS ™-CAPE Export of:

• LZOP

• Relays

• Settings


CAPE-IPS-SYSTEMS™ Location hierarchy

• Relays

• Settings (Primary and Secondary)


Exchange of CIM XML IEC61970 Topology between CAPE and IPS-ENERGY™(requires IPS-Topology Manager™)

IPS-CAPE Bridge™ Highlights

• Basic population of CAPE database via IPS Export

• IPS Relay Model and CAPE Style linking

• Basic population of IPS database via import from CAPE

• Exchange of network topology in CIM XML IEC61970 format between CAPE and IPS-ENERGY™ (requires IPS-Topology Manager™)
