The DA-820’s main operating system is based on the lntel quad-core i7-3612QE CPU and QM77 chipset, which supports standard x86, 2 VGA ports, 6 USB port, 4 gigabit LAN ports, and 2 3-in-1 RS- 232/422/485 serial ports. The DA-820 is equipped with a 4 SATA disk interface and supports RAID 0/1/5/10 functionality. The DA-820 is specifically designed for substation applications that require precise time synchronization and adherence to the IEC 61850-3 standards. The flexible design makes the DA-820 suitable for local SCADA, environmental monitoring, video surveillance, protocol conversion, and PRP/HSR redundancy applications. In addition, the cybersecurity function makes the DA-820 an ideal solution for secure network communication applications.
The DA-820 complies with the IEC 60255 standards to enable the protection of electrical relays in a smart substation. IEC 60255 is one of the most widely used standards for testing relays and protection equipment, and compliance ensures that the DA-820 will work reliably and seamlessly with IEDs (intelligent electronic devices) as a part of the robust substation automation system.
The housing is a standard 3U, 19-inch wide, rack-mounted rugged enclosure. This robust, rack-mountable design provides the hardened protection needed for industrial environment applications.
Enabling Efficient and Visually Represented PRP/HSR Network Management
Creating a network management interface of devices and systems using different protocols can create risks and management issues that compromise effectiveness and security for substation automation networks. An efficient and visually represented PRP/HSR network using power SCADA with specially designed management middleware can effectively avoid these problems........more
Efficient IIoT Data Processing with High I/O Density Computers
With more and more companies implementing IIoT applications, the demand to connect hundreds or thousands of devices to industrial automation systems has increased dramatically. The DA-720, a high-performance industrial-grade x86 platform, is ideal for such applications. It is based on the lntel® 6th Gen Skylake processor and provides a high density of gigabit Ethernet and serial ports in a 19-inch 2U rack-mountable case, making it an ideal choice for IIoT applications in industrial automation systems.

How to Get the Best Out of the IIoT with Predictive Maintenance
The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is shaping the way industrial applications are designed and implemented today. The IIoT is ushering in a new era of operational efficiency, information transparency, and economic growth. Innovative ideas on how to collect data, how to transform data, and how to use the data to increase efficiency and reduce costs are sprouting up all around us. The IIoT has bridged the gap between the physical and digital worlds and has created one combined space that provides limitless possibilities. In addition, the relentless pursuit of excellence in the IIoT world has renewed an interest in predictive maintenance solutions that ensure higher equipment reliability and system uptime.......more
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
