In order to supervise and control 110kV substations (or medium voltage switchgears). engineers require an integrated automation platform to manage plant-wide power systems. They employ a variety of Intelligent Electronic Devices (IED) in their substations for monitoring and protecting equipment which are comprised of different proprietary protocols (DNP 3. In an effort to modernize their high voltage substation.0 or IEC 60870) and different physical communication connections (Ethernet or serial ports). Furthermore the EKI-4654R Ethernet switch provides a short recovery time. To unify and synergize critical field information (such as transformer tap positions or switchgear leakage detection). The robust design realizes reliable performance to save the maintenance costs for our customer as well. or remote electrical signals and providing critical messages through the station bus to the substation system. UNO-3074 provides a full-featured integrated industrial-grade platform for plant substation automation. a fanless computing platform with no internal cabling. they required a robust platform with 19” rack mount to integrate substation process level signals and upload system data to the substation level for monitoring and control.
