Critical infrastructures, including substations, oil and gas facilities, and transportation systems, are typically situated in dispersed and challenging environments. These vital facilities have been increasingly exposed to cybersecurity threats such as malware and ransomware attacks in recent years. The devices deployed within these infrastructures, such as PLCs, HMIs, SCADA systems, and sensors, are interconnected operational technologies that optimize automation and production processes. However, this interconnectedness also introduces security vulnerabilities to industrial control systems, especially when unprotected IT devices are involved. As a leading hardware solutions provider trusted by Tier 1 cybersecurity companies, Lanner offers industry-certified OT (Operational Technology) security appliances meticulously designed to ensure zero-trust security for critical assets. These Lanner OT security appliances adhere to industry-specific certifications and standards, guaranteeing reliability, durability, and robust security measures.
C1D2 certified hardware is designed to deployed in hazardous environments by reducing the risk of flammable gases, vapors, or liquids, and other dangerous incidents.
EN50155 sets criteria for temperature, humidity, vibration, shock, electromagnetic compatibility, mechanical resilience, power supply stability, and fire safety.
IEC 61850-3 specifies hardware designed to withstand electrostatic discharge, fast transient (burst immunity), surge immunity and radiated RF susceptibility.
In a substation automation infrastructure, various applications, such as intelligent HMIs and SCADA systems, demand hardware with high availability to guarantee dependable operation. Lanner’s server-grade industrial computers, equipped with industrial-grade network I/O, a wide operating temperature range, and IEC-61850 certification, provide robust computing capabilities. These computers not only enhance performance but also expedite virtualized applications, contributing to the advancement of digital substations.Use Case
