The small form factor of the OrionLXm makes it an ideal Poletop Remote Terminal Unit or RTU. Inside of a metal enclosure on the pole, an OrionLXm connects to Bitronics SCADA meters attached to PTs and optional split-core CTs to monitor line voltage and current. Discrete I/O monitors switch position and other inputs and actuates devices. The OrionLXm communicates remotely to the utility SCADA system directly or to an RTU at the substation, and initiates or passes through control actions to the line reclosers, switches, and other IEDs.
