IEC 60870 5-104

IEC 60870 5-104 standard applies the remote control concepts defined by IEC 5-101 removing the serial header and adding the appropriate headers for the use of TCP/IP channels.

IEC 104 USES THE TCP/IP TECHNOLOGY TO ACCOMPLISH THE REMOTE CONTROL TASKS DEFINED BY IEC 60870-5-101.60870-5-104 testing

ENSOTEST has been working many years with this standard. Also we have develop software tools based on this protocol. Visit our product page to look at it. For that reason we have the experience and to create the best content about this standard.
