Pole Top Remote Terminal Unit (RTU)

The small form factor of the OrionLXm makes it an ideal Pole Top 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.

Software for this Application

Sensor

Includes points to “sense” OrionLXm operating conditions, including internal temperature, power supply health, firewall status, alarm status, modem status, and user login status. These points can be mapped to SCADA, Email, Alarm-Archive, Math and Logic or other applications.

Security

Includes strong passwords, user privileges, firewall, key cryptography and security logging.

Protocols for this Application

DNP3 Serial Slave

For communication to serial DNP3 Masters. Compliant to Level 2.

DNP3 TCP/IP Slave

For communication to networked DNP3 Masters. Compliant to Level 2. Supports TCP and UDP connections.
