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.
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.
Introduction to the IEC 60870-5-104 standard by ENSOTEST teaches you the basics of the 5-104 protocol. Introduction to the IEC 60870-5-104 standard The remote control of substations or power plants, using IEC 60870 5-104 standard, allows the utility to control locations separated long distances from a centralized control room optimizing the use of resources for that task. The definition of standardized remote control protocols makes it possible to integrate systems automated by different vendors with the utility control centre. This allows controlling the system without the need of protocol converters or adaptations. When the communication options were limited due to the ...Read More
