IEC-61850 is the specific standard for smart substations and defines the Ethernet protocol to be used for data communication and defines how devices in the substation communicate with each other. IEC-61850-3 devices need to meet electromagnetic Interference (EMI), temperature, and shock/vibration resistance requirements.
The Intel Core Haswell i7 CPU of the ECU-4784 supports Intel functionality. Intel AMT is an independent design of the operating system and enables it to be monitored and managed, regardless of whether it’s switched on or if the operating system has frozen.
To aid system integrators in building their systems, the ECU-4784 features dual expansion slots which can be used to significantly increase the number of COM, LAN, I/O ports.
Included with the ECU-4784 is the following value added functions: iCDManager (intelligent connectivity diagnosis manager), TPM (Trusted Platform Module), AMT (Active Management Technology) and VT-D (Virtualization Technology for Directed I/O).
iCDManager checks the system communication status and can quantitatively measure the status. It helps ECU-4784 series enhance maintenance efficiency and ensure system operated smoothly.
TPM is an integrated motherboard chip and provides basic security-related functions, primarily involving encryption keys. Its purpose is to check the system integrity and authenticate third-party users who would like to access the security features. Therefore, the privacy and confidentiality of the ECU-4784 series are assured.
The Intel CPU of ECU-4784 supports Intel VT-D functionality by using the VT-D hardware assistance built into Intel’s chipsets. The VT-D provides the necessary isolation to assure separation between each virtual machine’s computer resources.
