Web-Based SCADA for Small Utilities

The OrionLX and LXm can be used to create a web-based SCADA system in either a centralized or distributed topology. In the centralized configuration, a single OrionLX polls existing RTUs at multiple substations, using any SCADA Master protocol or network connection. Using the OrionLX WEBserver options and Direct Video options, the centralized OrionLX serves out web pages for single-line diagrams, faceplates, trends and real-time data to a locally connected touchscreen HMI, or to remote computers and mobile devices using HTTPS. In the distributed topology, multiple OrionLX’s or LXm’s collect data at each substation and present web-based SCADA screens to multiple remote PCs or mobile clients.
