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.

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

TUV Rheinland Robot Integrator Program

The industry's first comprehensive Robot Integrator Program saves robot integrators significant time and cost investments by allowing them to mark each cell compliant with ANSI/RIA R15.06 with the TUV Rheinland Mark. As opposed to a traditional certification or an on-site field labeling, TÜV Rheinland's Robot Integrator Program certifies the knowledge and skill-set of robot integrators in addition to testing robotic cells and processes against ANSI/RIA R15.06. This reduces the need for frequent onsite or off site testing and allows manufacturers to apply a single TÜV Rheinland label to multiple cells. The Robot Integrator Program individually assesses a robot integrator's understanding of the ANSI/RIA R15.06 standard along with the ability to consistently produce compliant robot cells. Following the requirements and procedures of the new program will enable robot integrators to produce individually compliant robotic cells under one serialized TÜV Rheinland Mark, which meets the national electric code and allows acceptance by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) and end users.
