The D20MX represents the next innovation in GE’s cyber secure RTU technology for NERC-CIP environments. The D20MX is built upon the field-proven Multilin D20 technologies and continues the tradition of reliable automation and control through high quality and long term product availability.
The Multilin D20MX Substation Controller collects, filters, and sorts data from a wide range of intelligent devices (RTUs, relays, meters) in the substation. The D20MX preserves original data time stamps for accurate sequence of event (SOE) logs, allowing data from large diverse geographic regions and time zones to be analyzed in extreme detail. Data can be presented simultaneously to multiple SCADA hosts. The D20MX comes with a built-in suite of protocols and security applications to facilitate integration with various substation devices and SCADA hosts.
D20MX is the sixth generation of D20 CPUs designed to provide a smooth migration path for D20 users to extend the life of aging D20 systems. It introduces a new and modern network security feature suite that enables effective compliance with NERC-CIP requirements, using open and trusted standards and protocols that allow integration with modern cyber security systems and tools.
The D20MX supports a comprehensive set of security functions to allow a seamless integration with existing IT department policies. Built-in cyber security features, such as Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS), Role Based Access Control (RBAC), and user activity logging, provide a complete security toolkit required to enable simpler and more efficient compliance with NERC-CIP requirements, using open and trusted standards and protocols, that allow integration with modern cyber security systems and tools.
