Prolucid Demonstrates High Speed Digital Fault Recorder with RTI's Connext® DDS Communication Software at DistribuTECH

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario—February 4, 2016—Prolucid Technologies Inc. (Prolucid), the Mississauga-based Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) framework company, today introduced Prolucid DFR, a substation ready, secure and high performance Digital Fault Recorder solution that addresses high-resolution fault and disturbance recordings and security requirements within utility networks. DFR is built on Prolucid's E2C Edge framework and incorporates RTI Connext® DDS as the underlying communication bus. E2C Edge enables simple multi-protocol support, data management, and security for embedded and low power edge devices.

The solution is a digital fault and disturbance recording system offering extremely high measurement performance, enhanced security, a ruggedized form factor, and standard utility communication interfaces such as Modbus, DNP3, DDS, and IEC-61850 allowing it to be seamlessly integrated into large-scale legacy and modern utility systems. Prolucid utilizes RTI's Connext® DDS product as the secure communication backbone of all products based on the E2C Edge framework as it offers superior performance, reliability, and security across local and distributed networks.

"RTI's Connext data distribution platform for the IIoT based on the DDS standard is gaining significant traction in the emerging smart grid," states Brett Murphy, director of business development for the IIoT at RTI. "Prolucid is a key partner in delivering the IIoT solutions and infrastructure that streamline the development of smart grid applications. Their ground-breaking use of the new DDS Security model brings a new level of resilience and cybersecurity to the grid."

Prolucid will be demonstrating the DFR at the upcoming DistribuTECH 2016 event held in Orlando, Florida on February 9-11th. Stop by booth #1837 or schedule a demo with us today!

With Prolucid DFR, customers can achieve:

  • 1MHz sampling performance for transient fault detection,
  • COMTRADE logging format and data management,
  • Time synchronization via IRIG-B, NTP, GPS, and IEEE 1588 PTP,
  • Wide variety of industry standard communication interfaces including Modbus, DNP3, DDS, MQTT, and IEC-61850,
  • Easily scale by adding more DFR's to enable simultaneous cascading logging for a complete picture when faults occur,
  • Enhanced device security via Prolucid's Security Enhanced Linux (SELinux) policy for NI Real-Time Linux,
  • Simple cloud connectivity by utilizing Prolucid's E2C Cloud.
