The Magnum 10C substation-hardened computer is said to provide mission-critical applications in harsh environments. The computer lets applications withstand extreme temperatures, power surges, and fast transients, as well as other issues present in harsh environments. Options include a sealed chassis and convection cooling using a GarrettCom-patented thermal design. The substation computer meets or exceeds IEC 61850 and IEEE 1613 global standard to support substation communications needs with error-free operation.
“Our 10-Series product family offers a new generation of innovation in hardened substation solutions to support today’s smart-grid initiatives and the evolving needs of data-intensive industrial applications,” said Lee House, general manager. “The Magnum 10C substation-hardened computer and previously announced Magnum 10KT Managed Switch and 10ETS Ethernet Terminal Server products ensure mission-critical applications will run in the most extreme environmental conditions. Substation designers and operators also benefit from the reduced cost of deployment and energy efficiency the 10-Series product family provides.”
The computer is built on the low-power consuming 1.6 Hz Intel Atom processor. Tests indicate its support for multiple operating systems including Windows 7, Windows XP/XPE; Linux OpenSUSE, Ubuntu, and Debian. The Magnum 10C has two Ethernet ports, six USB ports and six optional serial ports, as well as a 16GB flash drive and optional disk bays.
A backup power supply and hot-swappable replacements give the computer offers the highest level of reliability available in substation-hardened computers. Dual hot-swappable power supplies are available with multiple voltage options, including 90 to 250V ac-dc, 50-60 Hz, IA, 85W high voltages, and 22 to 60 Vdc, 4.5A and 81W low voltages.
