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.

 

Software for this Application

PostgreSQL

  • Open object-relational database management system (ORDBMS) used in the OrionLX to store SOE points, Alarms, Tags, and files in non-volatile Expanded Memory.

Security

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

WEBserver XML

  • Includes XML protocol to transfer data into custom webpages. Also include Inkscape plug-ins to simplify point selection and for graphics libraries.

Protocols for this Application

HTTPs

  • Network application protocols for viewing and interacting with OrionLX webpages. HTTPS adds SSL-based security. The OrionLX is an HTTP / HTTPS server when others are viewing its standard and custom webpages; the OrionLX can also act as an HTTP / HTTPS client when ordered with the “Direct Video” VGA Multimedia Board which comes with a Midori browser.

Hardware for this Application

High Performance CPU

  • 1.33GHz. Includes 4GB Expanded Memory for Alarm-Archive Retentive (AAR) Software module.
