Orion

  • The OrionLX is a multi-port automation platform. It is designed to operate all ports independently of one another. Each port can support a unique communications protocol withits own communication timing. All ports use a common database, which makes data from all ports available to any other port. The OrionLX also provides a logic processor and logging/archiving capabilities, making the OrionLX a powerful RTU. The OrionLX acquires data from IEDs and stores this data for polls by SCADA. SCADA commands are routed to the target IED for appropriate action.

  • The NovaTech Distributed Discrete I/O (DDIO) and Digital Combination I/O (DCIO) Sequence of Events Recording (SER) Modules are rugged signal conditioners. The modules are designed to present the state of field “inputs” to an attached Master device, as well as to accept output commands from a Master device and convert these commands to “outputs” to control field devices. The Orion DDIO/DCIO Modules communicate with the Master device using DNP3 protocol. The Orion DDIO Module is available in 24 inputs (-111), 16 inputs / 8 outputs (-110), and 8 inputs / 16 outputs (-100) models. The Orion DCIO Module only has one combination of inputs and outputs available: 8 inputs/8 outputs/8 analog inputs (-102)
