Moxa Unveils IEC 61850-3 Certified Computers

Moxa has unveiled a new series of high-performance IEC 61850-3 certified computers with PRP/HSR connectivity.

MoxaThe DA-820C Series is a fanless 19-inch 3U rackmount computer that features a powerful 7th generation Intel Xeon or Core i7/i5/i3 processor and multiple expansion interfaces to incorporate PRP/HSR, IRIG-B, serial, and Gigabit Ethernet fiber SFP connectivity for smart grid applications.

Moxa’s DA-820C comes with an Intel Xeon or Core i7/i5/i3 processor that can run virtual machines to support dual or triple operating systems. Using only one high-performance computer to run multiple operating systems on virtual machines, instead of installing multiple computers to run each OS separately, allows you to save space and costs.

Designed to enable IEC 61850 transformation, the computer supports native PRP/HSR connectivity. To handle high-speed, low-latency communications for exchanging large amounts of data while withstanding high EMI/EMC interference, the DA-820C features SFP interface for Gigabit Ethernet fiber optic communications to connect intelligent electronic devices (IEDs).

What’s more, Moxa offers a large portfolio of rackmount substation computers that includes the DA-681C 1U and DA-682C 2U rackmount computers to satisfy different substation application needs.

Since substation computers are often located at unmanned or remote sites, Moxa provides an easy-to-use utility, Proactive Monitoring, to help TSOs monitor their computer system’s status and take preventive maintenance measures.
