Drivers & Software
The DA-682A series of computers are x86 platforms with VGA, 6 gigabit Ethernet ports, CompactFlash, USB, and two PCI ports for DA Series expansion modules. The DA-682A comes in a standard 19-inch 2U rack-mountable case.
With their robust design, DA-682A computers are specialized for industrial automation applications: power substations, transportation and shipping, and oil and gas production and supply.
The DA-682A runs either Linux or Windows Embedded Standard 7, providing a friendly environment for developing sophisticated application software. Moxa’s ready-to-run software and readily available after-service support makes the programmer’s job easier, helping programmers develop bug-free code quickly and at a lower cost. In addition, the DA-682A also comes with three different CPU options, and basic models that allow system designers to install the DOM, RAM, and operating system according to their specific requirements. This is particularly flexible for building custom industrial solutions.
The DA-682A comes with 2 PCI ports that accept DA series expansion modules. Moxa provides a variety of communication modules for the DA series, including an 8-port RS-232/422/485 module, a 4-port 10/100 Mbps LAN module, and a universal PCI expansion module. This friendly design gives users the advantage of being able to swap out modules quickly and easily, making the DA-682A an ideal solution for a wide array of industrial automation applications.
Intelligent Automation for the Maintenance and Recovery of Software Platforms
Automation advances in industrial processes increasingly involve using industrial PCs for the control and monitoring of every sort of machinery and process. Yet as industrial PCs penetrate ever further into the automation stack, the problem of data loss and system corruption becomes a critical consideration both for the security issues raised as well as overall system availability. In this white paper we examine the software and hardware features that constitute an effective, fully automated, BIOS initiated, block-level software recovery solution that can be used across any industrial environment, whether following emergency crashes or for automated preventive maintenance......more
Making Smart Substations Even Smarter: Enhancing Substation Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability
This paper sketches out a few of the more important concerns that electricity suppliers should account for when planning substation upgrades. The focus is on how best to increase the reliability, availability, and maintainability of power substation automation networks within the context of the IEC 61850 vision, to give electricity suppliers a clear idea of the design procedures, device tolerances, and hardware and software features they should expect from the engineers and manufacturers who design and build their networking and computing devices.......more
Using MMS and SNMP to Integrate IT Management for Substation Automation
The devices that electrical substation automation systems are built from depend on highly precise, time-critical communications. Substation thus often use highly specialized monitoring systems to tackle this problem, but can approach it using different technologies. The most up-to-date, “smart” substations use the Manufacturing Messaging Specification (MMS) for communications among IEC 61850 intelligent electronic devices (IEDs), allowing SCADA to monitor and control IED states as well as process switchgear and transformer data directly. However, IT networking devices have been increasingly applied in IEC 61850 systems, and this equipment communicates using SNMP. Consequently, in the modern substation automation industry it’s clear that, for the time being, SNMP and MMS will continue to exist side-by-side. For designers and integrators of electrical substation equipment, bringing both MMS and SNMP support to IT equipment is an ideal, one-size fits-all alternative that allows for the greatest flexibility and adaptability around........more
