Advantech Introduces the UNO-4673A IEC 61850-3/IEEE 1613 Compliant Substation Automation Platform

(Cincinnati, OH -January 2012) - The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech introduces the UNO-4673A, an IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 compliant Substation Automation Platform. IEC 61850-3 certification ensures environmental and EMI immunity of the network devices used in substations while IEEE 1613 details environmental and testing requirements for communication networking devices. With IEC 61850-3 and IEEE 1613 standards, the UNO-4673A is able to communicate with different devices across substations and serve as an excellent computing platform.


This fanless Intel® Atom™ D510 processor-based embedded automation computer has dual power AC (100 ~ 240 Vac) and DC input (106 ~ 250 Vdc) with advanced computing technology and remote management capability which delivers robustness and reliability. It is designed with a compact 2U rackmount form-factor, rear-end wiring, and a front panel LED indicator, providing simple management and easy maintenance at substations.

The UNO-4673A comes with a wide range of communication interfaces and flexible expansion capabilities, including 6 x Ethernet ports with LAN redundant teaming functionality, 6 x USB ports, 2 x RS-232/422/485 isolated serial ports, IRIG-B, and fiber optic LAN plug-in cards. Three configurable domain I/O expansion slots are open for users to select the I/O modules to meet their application needs.


The UNO-4673A supports Windows® XP Embedded, Windows 2000/XP, Windows CE 6.0, and Linux OS allowing the users to choose from many different OS options.

With all these great features, the UNO-4673A is a great open architecture for power & energy applications and can serve as an excellent gateway, controller or protocol server at substations.

PQ12-R Micro Linear Servo

PQ12-R Micro Linear Servo

The PQ12-R series of linear servos are the smallest affordable linear servo on the market today. Small enough to fit inside a tic tac box, it's very powerful with a maximum force of over 11lbs. It operates as a direct plug-and-play replacement for standard rotary servos, using the same standard 3 wire connector. Regardless of how you drive your servos, be it with an RC receiver, an Arduino board, or a VEX micro-controller, the PQ12-R servo will function in place of a regular servo, but with the added benefit of providing linear motion. They're available in a 20mm stroke coupled with gear ratio options of 30:1, 63:1 and 100:1 cover a large variety of applications. Our PQ12 is popular used in a variety of robotics applications, medical devices, radio control and 3D printable bionic hands. Our PQ12 is proudly designed in Canada by our in-house team of engineers and thoroughly tested before leaving our facility.
