SEL-3360

Compact Automation Controller

The SEL-3360 hardened industrial and substation automation controller is built to withstand harsh environments in utility and industrial applications. By eliminating all moving parts, including rotating hard drives and fans, and using error-correcting code (ECC) memory technology, SEL automation controllers have a mean time between failures (MTBF) of over 300 years. Designed, manufactured, and tested to the same standards as our protective relays, every SEL-3360 comes with an industry-leading ten-year warranty and is made in the U.S.A. Discover why made in the U.S.A. is important.

SEL automation controllers are versatile. They can be configured from the factory to run the SEL Blueframe application platform or Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Enterprise and Windows Server OSs. SEL network and serial port drivers are available to support the installation of third-party Linux OSs.

Blueframe—Improve your power system OT network management, simplify security patches, and ensure availability with SEL Blueframe application platform. You can configure SEL automation controllers (SEL-3350, SEL-355, SEL-3360) with Blueframe to manage and operate SEL containerized application like the Data Management and Automation (DMA) applications.

Kiosk Computer—Select the SEL-3360 for remote user applications that require the power of a high-performance PC. With its small footprint, the SEL-3360 packs a lot of computing power into a limited space (with a 2.0 or 2.8 GHz quad-core Intel Xeon processor). Passive cooling and a broad temperature range mean it is possible to install SEL automation controllers in locations where off-the-shelf computers would not survive. With an MTBF of over 300 years for our automation controllers, the SEL-3360 can operate with little or no maintenance, making it ideal for unattended operation.

Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) Software Appliance—Whether you are currently shipping a tough appliance, thinking about deploying your software as a dedicated appliance for rugged environments, or just at the idea stage, consider reselling the SEL-3360 with a custom overlay specially crafted for your business.

Distributed Control Systems—Move your computing-intensive control applications as close to your equipment as you need. A small footprint and broad temperature range make it possible to install the SEL-3360 in locations where many computers would either not fit or not survive. Since SEL automation controllers can be installed just about anywhere, use them to ensure local control of equipment is maintained even when communications with the master control center are lost. Remotely service units using the built-in Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) functionality.

Engineering Workstation—Meet or exceed IEEE 1613 and protective relay specifications for harsh environments with the SEL-3360, which is made to withstand vibration, electrical surges, fast transients, and extreme temperatures. You can access the engineering workstation remotely and securely using Microsoft Windows Remote Desktop tunneled over IPsec or through Intel AMT with remote KVM over IP.

Details

Industrial and substation automation and computing systems require 24/7 availability and ease of service when necessary. SEL automation controllers are designed with a focus on RAS—reliability, availability, and serviceability. The SEL-3360 meets these requirements with the following:

Reliability
SEL designs, manufactures, and tests every automation controller in-house. SEL automation controllers have an MTBF of over 300 years and are backed by a ten-year, no-questions-asked warranty.

Availability
Designed to keep your system operational for longer periods, the SEL-3360 can be powered by dual external SEL-9331 Power Supply modules connected in parallel, which can be energized from two independent sources. The two-slot 2.5" SATA drive bay can be loaded with solid-state drives (SSDs) and supports RAID 0 and 1 configurations. SEL’s unique system monitor (SysMon), Backup and Recovery Tool (BaRT), and watchdog timer maximize system availability by alerting users of potential issues and minimizing downtime with automatic recovery from system crashes.

Serviceability
Intel AMT provides high serviceability. Users can perform diagnostics, install software or OSs, and even command a reboot remotely. Additionally, SEL’s SysMon logs controller events specific to the installed system to aid in quick recovery.

Robust Hardware Design
SEL automation controllers are designed for maximum reliability, with no fans or moving parts, and are backed by a ten-year warranty. The SEL-3360 has a durable power supply, an advanced thermal management system, error-correcting memory, and single-level cell (SLC) SSDs to provide reliable operation in the harshest environments.

Reliable Operation—Meets IEEE 1613, IEEE C37.90, IEC 61850-3, and IEC 60255 Protective Relay Standards
Install the SEL-3360 in harsh environments. It is designed to withstand 15 kV electrostatic discharge, fast transients, conducted and radiated emissions, up to 15 g shock, seismic and sustained vibration, voltage surge, and large magnetic field disturbances.

Multiple Power Supply Options
The SEL-3360E comes with an internal SEL-9331 Power Supply, while the SEL-3360S can be powered by an external SEL-9331 or any other 12 Vdc source. Two models of the SEL-9331 Power supply are available: High Voltage (120/240 Vac or 125/250 Vdc) and Low Voltage (48 Vdc).

Watchdog Functionality
Monitor and alarm for numerous system services and conditions with an embedded controller that provides an extra level of computer system reliability. The embedded controller includes a programmable system monitor interface and alarm configuration.

High-Performance Intel Quad-Core Processors
The SEL-3360 features Intel multicore processors with Intel vPro technology and up to 64 GB ECC RAM, providing the power you need for any application.

Multiple I/O Ports
Directly connect to local peripherals and high-speed network interfaces with two Ethernet ports, audio I/O, six USB 3.1 ports, three digital video ports, and two serial ports.

Flexibility With PCIe Slots
The SEL-3360E provides two PCI Express expansion slots which allows you to add additional serial ports, Ethernet ports, I/O, or other PCI Express cards that your application requires.

OS Choices
You can purchase the SEL-3360 as hardware-only or configure it to run a variety of Linux or Microsoft Windows OSs to provide extreme flexibility and functionality along with enhanced security features.

Large Storage Capacity
Choose from three SSD options to suit your application:

  • SLC for the highest endurance and reliability.
  • Industrial multilevel cell (iMLC) for a higher capacity but reduced endurance.
  • Commercial multilevel cell (MLC) for the highest capacity and a lower cost.

With a two-drive SSD bay, you can create one large volume or configure a typical RAID system that provides redundant and more reliable storage.

OS Options

The SEL-3360 supports various OS installation options. You can purchase the controller as hardware without an OS installed, providing flexibility to install your own custom OS image.

SEL automation controllers support several factory-installed configurations, including the Blueframe application platform and Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Enterprise and Windows Server OSs. SEL network and serial port drivers are available to support the installation of third-party Linux OSs.

Third-party supported OS options: 

  • Blueframe*
  • Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Enterprise*
  • Microsoft Windows Server*
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linus (RHEL)
  • CentOS Linux

Hypervisor supported options: 

  • Microsoft Hyper-V
  • Linux KVM
  • VMware ESXi1

*Factory-orderable OS.
