Orion offers two solutions for expansion beyond the standard 17 serial ports: the software option Cascaded
Orions and the network protocol option STCP.
STCP, or SEL® Protocol over TCP, is designed to work with SEL relays and enables one or more expansion Orions
to serve as a “port switch” or “terminal server” to a Master OrionLX. Up to 96 SEL relays can be connected
using STCP. Any Orion can be used as the “port switch” Orion, and can be located local or remote to the Master
OrionLX.
If the Orion5r or OrionLX is used as the port switch Orion, IRIG-B on pins #4 and #6 is provided to time
synchronize SEL relays and 100mA at 5Vport power is provided to power port-connected accessories.
In the diagram below, the Master OrionLX polls the SEL relays shown. Slave Orions #1 and #2 are set up as port
switches with passthrough parameters only.

Serial Port Expansion
Cascaded Orions designates one Master Orion and multiple Slave Orions. The configuration is written and loaded only
to the Master Orion, which in turn automatically transfers configurations to the Slave Orions.
Up to six OrionLX Slaves can be connected to one OrionLX; maximum serial ports: 119

In the diagram above, the Master Orion is the single substation RTU. All three Orions are configured to poll IED
points. The points in the Slave Orions become available to be selected by the Master Orion.

Orion
Serial Port Expansion
Cascaded Orions simplifies the transfer of data from Slave Orions to Master Orion by eliminating two configuration
steps: the creation of Slave Port in the Slave Orions, and the creation of Master Port in the Master Orion to poll Slave
Orions. Instead, Cascaded Orions makes all IED points in the Slave Orions available to the Master Orion to present to
SCADA and other client applications. In essence, Cascaded Orions enables the Slave Orions to appear like IEDs with
custom point lists.
D/3
Cascaded Orions, for OrionLX only, is for large automation applications with a variety of IEDs and physical connections. It is also for applications where distributed Orion processing is important to enhance throughput and performance.
