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.

Support for Legacy NovaView Plus Systems
NovaTech can provide extensions and modifications to legacy NovaView Plus systems, including adding new RTUs, new users, new pages and new IEDs. Current and earlier software versions of NovaView Plus are maintained at our Lenexa engineering center.
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,
NovaTech produces a license-free, lower-cost SCADA solution for electric cooperatives and municipalities.
This document summarizes the key features, the differences between traditional SCADA and WEBserver SCADA, security features, and customer examples.
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…

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.
Almost half of NovaTech’s business is in Systems and Services including web page design, panel design, math and logic development, Orion configuration, and onsite installation and commissioning. Mark Matassa explains how our engineers can work with you to reduce project execution time at the 2016 DistribuTECH Conference and Exhibition in Orlando, Florida.
