One of the most important factors when selecting an Industrial PC (IPC) for your substation automation application is adherence to standards because the power industry is heavily regulated and monitored by government bodies worldwide.
Advantech rack-mount substation IPCs meet these requirements with compliance to international standards including IEC 61850-3 certification, which defines the international standards of network and system communications in power substations; and Electricity Certification IV level, which is particularly important for substations in China.
Other key requirements met by these Advantech IPCs are reliability, high performance, and the ability to rack mount. Advantech IPCs feature fanless design to increase uptime, as well as other features to improve reliability. Industry leading performance is assured with high levels of computing power, isolated serial communication, and multiple Ethernet ports.
