The OrionLX Substation Automation Platform is designed with a Linux operating system, more powerful processors for an expanded range of substation automation applications, and comprehensive Cyber-Security functions for meeting NERC CIP requirements. Configuration of the OrionLX – including the points read from IEDs, the points presented to SCADA, Math and Logic, and special functions for Sequence of Events, Alarm Annunciation and Distribution Automation – is accomplished using NovaTech Communications Director (NCD), the same license-free tool used to configure other Orion models. NCD eliminates nearly all register entry and typing by providing preconfigured pick lists for dozens of utility protocols and over 250 utility IEDs.
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,

The NovaTech products for NERC CIP compliance address portions of the requirements of Version 5 of CIP-005, CIP-007, CIP-008, CIP-009, CIP-010 and CIP-011. Compliance for each area is summarized, and details on User Password Management and IED (Host) Password Management is provided in this document.
The OrionLX Tile Annunciator is a web-based software-defined alarm annunciation product. The Tile Annunciator
webpages are served directly from an OrionLX automation platform and provide simplified setup, categorization
and viewing of active and acknowledged alarms in substation HMI and web-based SCADA applications.
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.
