The Best Substation Automation Platform
Orion Applications

Simple and Secure Substation Automation

NovaTech Substation Automation and Cyber Security division (located in Lenexa, Kansas) got its start automating utility substations and gas pipelines with off-the-shelf PLCs loaded with custom protocol emulations.  Frustrated by the complicated and “clunky” configuration of these systems, the Lenexa group set out to design a platform that would leverage the convergence of communications and automation capabilities to replace multiple substation devices ‑ Remote Terminal Units, Chart Recorders, Cyber Secure Communications Gateways, Distribution Automation Controllers, Protective Relay Communications Processors, Cyber Secure Substation Gateways and more ‑ into a single, easily-configured box. Today OrionLX is the leading flexible substation automation platform in the U.S. market, seamlessly and easily integrating data from multiple vendors’ measurement and protection devices and providing NERC CIP Cyber Security for over a hundred new U.S. utilities in the past four years.

“Thanks so much!  You guys provide the BEST support of any company I have ever dealt with.“
