OrionLX

Fewer Boxes and Less Setup

Relay Integration, Automation, HMI, and NERC CIP Secure Gateway in One Easy to Use Box

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.

Key Features

Substation HMI

  • Pre-drawn Image Library provides graphics for  NovaTech products, IED faceplates, substation apparatus, and controls.
  • Multimedia Board adds VGA video port, third Ethernet port, audio port, and USB ports for keyboard and mouse.
  • WEBserver HMI requires only a browser, or the Multimedia VGA port to view standard and customized pages. License-free.
  • VGA Touchscreen Monitor is rugged and powered by the substation battery.

Math and Logic

  • IEC 61131-3 provides an international standard set of tools for math and logic creation.

Relay Integration

  • Relay Helper automatically reads the SEL relay DNA and ID to create pick lists for new SEL relays.

Networking, Protocols, and Communication

  • PRP Redundant Ethernet supports the latest international standard for Ethernet redundancy.
  • IEC 61850 supports Client/Server and GOOSE publish/subscribe. Includes powerful “Model Builder” for the server.
