Power substations transport electricity from power plants to homes, businesses, and factories, and are a critical component of the smart grid. To generate, distribute and manage energy effectively for power industry, a highly integrated and reliable Ethernet-based network infrastructure is essential. It not only increases operating performance but also results in both cost and time efficiency. Axiomtek’s tailored rBOX series of DIN-rail fanless embedded systems answers to these expectations, and features convenient installation and maintenance for communication control in power plant management, electricity distribution and control system.
DIN-rail Fanless Embedded Systems
Axiomtek’s rBOX series of DIN-rail fanless embedded systems is suitable for intelligent computing and communication solutions in critical environments, such as power plant automation, facility monitoring systems, and intelligent transportation systems. The rBOX series supports an extended temperature range of -40°C to 70°C for use in extreme operating environments. The fanless design increases reliability, extends MTTR, and ultimately reduces maintenance efforts. Front accessible I/O cabling is very convenient for wiring and maintenance. The rBOX series features a redundant Ethernet LAN connection for greater availability and reliability. The redundant power inputs minimize the risk of data loss in the event of a single power failure. Their compact size with DIN-rail mounting allows for easy installation into control cabinets. The rBOX series meets Safety Agency requirements and have passed heavy industrial EMI/EMS testing. To streamline implementation of management applications, Axiomtek has launched AXView monitoring software package. Based on SNMP protocols, AXView makes it easy for system administrators to manage and monitor remote computers.
Industrial Ethernet Switches
Axiomtek’s redundant ring managed Ethernet switches support fast recovery time (<15mS) keeping your industrial Ethernet applications running nonstop. If the primary communication path is disconnected, the redundant ring technology will provide a redundant path in the network within 15mS. The IP30 aluminum housing with DIN-rail or panel mounting helps dissipate heat efficiently making it perfect for space restricted applications. This series can be configured smartly by a web browser, CLI, and windows utility.
Compact Network Appliances
Axiomtek’s compact-size security platforms come in low-power, fanless operation and cost effective designs. By utilizing PCIe Gigabit Ethernet and extreme computing processor, the hardware platforms deliver outstanding computing capability for network operation. Other features include LAN by-pass function, LED programmable, firmware reset, functions that are specified with sample codes.
