Data Archival Appliance

The OrionLX or LXm can serve as a Data Archive Appliance for remote substations without SCADA communication. Polled data from substation meters, event recorders, relays and other IEDs is stored in Orion on-board, non-volatile memory, and is made accessible to substation engineers for periodic withdrawal via the front USB port.

Software for this Application

Alarm/Archive/Retentive

Stores both discrete and analog events based on time (e.g. every 15 minutes) or change (e.g. ON-OFF or analog change out of deadband). Alarm Annunciation functionality includes defining alarm states, defining alarm messages. Pre-engineered “Archive” and “Alarm” webpages included.

PostgreSQL

Open object-relational database management system (ORDBMS) used in the OrionLX to store SOE points, Alarms, Tags, and files in non-volatile Expanded Memory.

Time Management

Enables the OrionLX to accept any common time protocol – IRIG-B, DNP3 or NTP – to synchronize its clock and time-stamp events.  Also enables the OrionLX to send out IRIG-B, DNP3, NTP or SEL® ASCII to attached IEDs. Includes the NKI Time Interface Module that reports clock accuracy and synchronization status.

Alias

Enables the user to create an alternate name for any point in the OrionLX database. Supports load of Alias spreadsheet to reduce typing.

Protocols for this Application

Master Protocols to obtain data from attached IEDs
