The DA-820 Series is based on the Intel® Celeron™/Intel® Core™ i3 or i7 CPU, and QM77 chipset, which supports the standard x86 OS and comes with 2 VGA ports, 6 USB ports, 4 Gigabit LAN ports, and 2 3-in-1 RS-232/422/485 serial ports. The DA-820 is equipped with a 4 SATA disk interface and supports RAID 0/1/5/10 functionality. The DA-820 is specifically designed for substation applications that require precise time synchronization and adherence to the IEC 61850-3 standards. The flexible design makes the DA-820 suitable for local SCADA, environmental monitoring, video surveillance, protocol conversion, and PRP/HSR redundancy applications. In addition, the cybersecurity functions make the DA-820 an ideal solution for secure network communication applications.
The DA-820 complies with the IEC 60255 standard to enable the protection of electrical relays in a smart substation. IEC 60255 is one of the most widely used standards for testing relays and protection equipment, and compliance ensures that the DA-820 will work reliably and seamlessly with IEDs (intelligent electronic devices) as a part of a robust substation automation system.
The housing is a standard 3U, 19-inch wide, rack-mountable rugged enclosure. This robust, rack-mountable design provides the hardened protection needed for industrial environment applications.
Smart Recovery Function
The DA-820’s Smart Recovery function makes it easy to troubleshoot system software errors on computers to minimize downtime. Engineers who are experts in a particular vertical market may not have enough computer domain knowledge to know how to fix operating system problems. Moxa Smart Recovery™ is an automated BIOS-level recovery system tool that allows engineers to automatically trigger OS recovery to minimize downtime.
Proactive Monitoring Function
Moxa Proactive Monitoring is a small-footprint, resource-friendly, easy-to-use utility that allows users to track a number of system parameters. Users can view the current parameter values for these key parts by simply clicking on the icons corresponding to the parameters in the user interface. User-defined key part indicators (KPIs) are used to monitor the computer’s key parts. Visible and/or audio alerts are triggered automatically via relay and SNMP traps when these KPIs exceed their preset threshold values, making it extremely convenient for operators to avoid system downtime by setting up predictive maintenance tasks well in advance.
