Configuration Backup Manager

Secure Automated Configuration Retrieval & Backup

The Configuration Backup Manager is a software option available on any OrionLX™ Automation Platform*. It provides a simple and automatic method to retrieve and back-up configuration files from the OrionLX as well as settings files from attached SEL® protective relays. The Configuration Backup Manager also provides a convenient MD5 checksum on the backed up files which can be used to determine if any of the backup files have been changed from previous backups. Backed-up files can also be used for system restore.

*For standard OrionLXs without the High Performance CPU and Expanded Memory, please check with NovaTech first to verify memory capacity to support this option.
