To offer advanced industrial communication solutions for the growing needs of power grid network, Lanner Electronics Inc. will present its new hardware designs and platforms at Booth 845 in the upcoming DistribuTECH 2015, which will run from February 3 to 5, in San Diego Convention Center, California. In this event, Lanner will showcase a wide range of new industrial communication and security platforms designed for various power automation applications, including power transmission & distribution, renewable energy monitoring and industrial automation control.

Industrial Communication Platform
In view of the growing demand of a more flexible communication system for dealing with today’s complicated smart grid network, Lanner will introduce the next generation communication platform, the HICD-3480, featuring Lanner’s unique Hybrid ICD™ (Hybrid Industrial Communication Device) architecture. By complying with IEC 61850-3, the fanless, powerful 4U industrial communication platform features up to 6 swappable I/O blades with a wide selection of modularized CPU and I/O cards, which offer multi-platforms (x86/RISC) and flexible port combination for the most sophisticated power automation applications.

On the other hand, Lanner will also showcase the new mainstream DIN rail communication platform, the LEC-3013T. Based on the Intel Atom D525 CPU, the compact LEC-3013T features 4 to 8 isolated COM ports and a new chassis design for a wide operating temperature (-40℃ to 70℃), making it a robust industrial PC ideal for remote areas such as solar power plants or wind turbine.

Industrial Cyber Security Appliances
By taking cyber threats and harsh ambient environments into considerations, Lanner will also feature its new fanless LEC-6040 industrial communication appliances designed to work as industrial firewall and UTM. Powered by Intel® Core™ i5-4402E or i3-4102E CPU, the compact LEC-6040 is armed with a ESD/surge isolated COM port and rich and flexible LAN port selections. This appliance can filter the on-site network protocols and inspect the packets flowing in the protocols to protect the network traffic of critical infrastructures, such as manufacturing sites, power substation, power T&D and renewable energy plants.
