An OrionLX or LXm can be configured as a Distribution Automation (or DA) Controller in a Fault Location, Isolation, and Service Restoration (FLISR) scheme. Orion collects data from feeder mounted reclosers, switches and sensors, identifies the faulted section, isolates it and restores service to unfaulted sections from an alternate source. DA logic in the Orion is pre-configured and requires only point and click for simple schemes. Math and Logic, including IEC 61131-3, is available for more complex schemes.
Software for this Application
Pick Lists for commonly used recloser and switch controllers; Cooper, SEL, G&W, etc.
Pre-engineered logic to enable the OrionLX to identify location of the fault, isolate faulted line section and restore service to unfaulted section.
Protocols for this Application
DNP3 Serial Master
For serial communication to DNP3 IEDs. Compliant with Level 2. Includes “DNP3 Passthrough” to pass through DNP3 vendor software to connected IEDs. Supports Secure Authentication Version 5.
DNP3 TCP/IP Master
For TCP/IP communication to DNP3 IEDs. Compliant with Level 2. Supports Secure Authentication Version 5.
NovaTech Orion I/O™ is an extension of the family of OrionLX™ Automation Platforms for substation automation and incorporates the same security features, software tools and “NCD” configuration as the OrionLX. It is a rack-mountable I/O assembly with four slots—A, B, C, and D—that can be filled with any combination of I/O cards: currently 16-Point Discrete Input Card,
At DistribuTECH 2017, NovaTech is exhibiting the new Orion I/O™ for substations. It delivers NERC CIP-compliant security, the highest I/O density (up to 64 in 2 RU) and the lowest cost per point (under $20). Orion I/O is a member of the OrionLX™ family, which means the right combination of flexibility and ease-of-use.
Rep. Kevin Yoder (3rd Congressional District of Kansas) presented NovaTech a letter of recognition from and an American flag that flew over the Capitol. This award was in recognition of shipping over 20,000 American manufactured products worldwide.
With the rapid adoption of the IEC 61850 standard by many US-based utilities, Distributed Event Recorders are becoming easier to create. Bruce’s presentation explains why the application of fault recorders could…
IEC 61131-3 is the international standard for programmable logic controller (PLC) programming languages and specifies the syntax, semantics and display for five languages. Multiple language support in IEC 61131-3 enables the control program developer to select the language that is best suited to a particular task.
NovaTech will be represented at the Saudi Arabia Smart Grid Conference on Smart Grid and Renewable Energy (SASG 2017). The purpose of the event is to bring together researchers, designers, developers and practitioners interested in the advances and applications...

Almost half of NovaTech’s business is in Systems and Services including web page design, panel design, math and logic development, Orion configuration, and onsite installation and commissioning. Mark Matassa explains how our engineers can work with you to reduce project execution time at the 2016 DistribuTECH Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida.
The OrionLX or OrionLXm can serve as a substation Math and Logic Processor. Data polled from attached IEDs – meters, event recorders, I/O, relays, breakers, etc – can be manipulated using the OrionLX internal Math and Logic Functions.
A webinar covering the five Math and Logic toolkits in IEC 61131-3: Ladder Diagram, Structured Text, Function Block Diagram, Sequential Function Chart, Instruction List, and how each application should be used.
