DA-683 industrial computers excel in a wide array of power automation applications. The DA-683 series is based on the Intel x86 processor and supports DVI-I, 6 gigabit Ethernet ports, 2 RS-232 serial ports, CompactFlash, and USB. They come standard in a 19-inch, 2U high form factor. The Intel Atom D510 processor gives the DA-683 enough punch to perform demanding industrial tasks without consuming a lot of power, for a highly cost-effective overall system. DA-683 computers are IEEE 1588 compliant and support precision time protocol and clock synchronization to provide the time accuracy required for event logging in power substation systems.
IEC-61850-3 compliance confirms that the DA-683 can deliver stable and reliable system operations in power applications. Additional value and convenience is provided through a modular design with two independent slots for flexible system integration and expansion. Users have the option to add a variety of different communications modules, including an 8-port RS-232/422/485 module, 8-port RS-422/485 module, 4-port 10/100 Mbps LAN module, 8-port 10/100 Mbps switch module, and a universal PCI expansion module.
The DA-683 series includes wide temperature models that operate reliably in a -40 to 70°C operating temperature range for the same great performance in applications in extremely harsh environments.
DA-683 computers run Linux, Windows Embedded Standard 2009, or Windows Embedded Standard 7 (pre-installed), providing a familiar environment for developing sophisticated application software. Moxa provides comprehensive software support to help programmers develop bug-free code quickly and at a lower cost.

Making Smart Substations Even Smarter: Enhancing Substation Reliability, Availability, and Maintainability

Smart Substation Computer White PaperThis 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

Using MMS and SNMP to Integrate IT Management for Substation AutomationThe 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
