IEC 60870-5-104 Client OPC Server



The IEC 60870-5-104 protocol is applied in telemetry devices/systems. Data is transferred as sequences of binary codes in order to monitor and control geographically-distributed processes.

The protocol standard is defined to operate with TCP/IP open interface, which is used in LAN orWAN Networks. This protocol is widely used for Load Dispatch Center communication in Hydel or Thermal Power Plants.

104 Protocol OPC server

IEC 60870-5-104 protocol is widely used in power industry, especially for communication with Load Dispatch Centers (LDCs) or State Load Dispatch Centers (SLDCs) in Power Generation industry. The software is also used in systems requiring configurable protocol gateway. The full-featured OPC server provides access to telemechanical commands and data. Moreover, it transforms various formats in real-time mode. The program enables to integrate all the fragments into a common system.
