Orion Automation Platform

Multiple Functions, Minimal Headaches

The Orion Family of Automation Platforms are designed to perform a range of automation applications in electrical substations. A single Orion may be configured to replace multiple legacy boxes in a substation which in turn reduces hardware, design, wiring and panel costs while simplifying configuration.

Key Design Features

  1. Rugged Like a Protective Relay
    • Meets ANSI C37.90.1 2002 Fast Transient on I/O and power supplies and ANSI C.37.90.2 1995 RFI to 35 volts per meter
    • Direct fiber optic available on serial communication ports and Ethernet port
    • Designed to operate over -40C◦ to 70C◦, without heaters or fans
    • Meet CE requirements for the world market
  2. Flexible and Modular Like a PLC
    • IEC 61131-3 logic suite for math, logic and control
    • Modular and expandable I/O
    • Modular and expandable ports
    • Non-volatile memory
  3. Utility-Specific
    • Complete Cyber Security Package
    • Built-in breaker control, counter and accumulator functions
    • Momentary-Change-Detect (MCD) function
    • Full suite of utility protocols
    • Support for bit synchronous communications
    • Utility-grade I/O
    • Support for IEC 61850
  4. Standard "PC" Tools
    • VGA Video Port and USB keyboard / mouse ports
    • Web browser and web server technologies
    • Open relational PostgreSQL database

Web-Based Electric Utility SCADA

A low-cost, license-free, and secure SCADA System can be assembled from web pages served from Orion.

  • Typical customized pages include one-line diagrams, IED zoom screens and breaker controls.
  • Typical standard Orion web pages include user privilege set-up, diagnostics, alarms, sequence of events and trending.

Access Non-Operational Data Remotely and Securely

Protective relay settings, fault records, oscillography and apparatus health can be accessed through Orion. Archived data in Orion can be accessed through file transfers and SQL queries.

I/O Systems for Orion RTUs

Two I/O Systems (Orion I/O and Bitronics 878 DIOD), each designed to provide 1ms time-stamped discrete events, analog inputs and breaker control outputs in 48V dc and 125V dc substations. Both serials and Ethernet connections are supported.

The Orion I/O system provides combinations up to 64 inputs and outputs in a compact 19" rack mount or panel mount designs.

One Box, Eight Applications

  • Math and Logic Controller
  • Relay Communications Processor
  • Distribution Automation Controller
  • Secure Substation Gateway
  • Webserver, HMI and SCADA
  • Sequence of Events Recorder and Alarm Annunciator
  • Data Archive Appliance
