Orion Substation Automation

The easiest way to automate the power grid

Orion makes it simple to access and distribute SCADA, protection and other operational data so you can solve more problems, more quickly.

Unlock your data with ease

Orion integrates your legacy equipment and systems and provides access to all substation data using pre-configured picklists, minimizing configuration time and eliminating the dependence on proprietary systems.

Turn data into decisions

Easily share actionable information with SCADA, IT, protection, and asset managers, using email, SMS, custom webpages and SCADA protocols, all while meeting NERC CIP security best practices.

Do it all in one box

A single Orion can serve multiple roles in the substation - SCADA, HMI, Local Logic, Intelligent Alarming, Sequence of Events, Distribution Automation including FLISR and Feeder Automation Schemes - reducing development and wiring costs.

Made in the USA

The Orion is designed and built in the USA from the printed circuit board on up and are backed by our 10 year "no hassle" worldwide warranty.
