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.
IEC 61850 supports Client/Server and GOOSE publish/subscribe. Includes powerful “Model Builder” for the server.
Tile Annunciatorenables a multiple-page alarm tile annunciator to be set up in a few minutes. Up to 24 pages with 60 alarms per page.
OrionLX Communication Protocols, Math and Logic and Software Options
The OrionLX supports all common “Master” and “Client” protocols, and “Slave” and “Server” protocols including DNP3, SEL Master, Modbus, IEC 61850 and IEC 60870. With an optional “Bit Synchronous” card, support is provided for legacy CDC and Conitel protocols as well. The OrionLX also supports IEC 61131-3 Math & Logic, Alarm Annunciation, SOE and Points Blocking software options. For complete details, see the OrionLX Model # Builder below:
The Orion Family of Substation Automation Platforms and I/O perform an expanding array of automation and security applications in electric utility substations, with minimal setup and maintenance. A single Orion can replace multiple legacy boxes in a substation, reducing hardware, design, wiring, and panel costs.
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…
