SCADA Systems

Secure Browser-Based SCADA Systems

Engineering, Documentation and Testing for Small to Mid-Sized Electric Utilities

We leverage the open standards, security and flexibility of our WEBserver HMI software to provide license-free SCADA functionality at a fraction of the cost of loading and maintaining PC-based SCADA software packages. For users with basic requirements for system visualization, alarm management, remote breaker control and limited data archival and trending, NovaTech can provide a complete SCADA system requiring only browser access from user PCs. In these systems, a local or remote OrionLX serves out standard and customized web pages. This browser-only design eliminates software maintenance and load issues on user PCs. NovaTech engineers can also design and commission a secure communication link between the OrionLX Webserver HMI and user PCs, including VPN and firewalls.

  • Bitronics 70 Series in Relay Upgrade Application

    This video shows how a Northwest utility uses the Bitronics M871 to captures a fault and provides key information to the utility. Features such as SCADA data, distance-to-fault, disturbance recording, etc., that weren’t present, can be made available from the M87x. Installing the Bitronics M871 to automate the distribution substation is a low-cost option to performing a relay upgrade or installing an expensive fault recorder.
