Communication by IEC 60870-5 protocol

The IEC 60870-5 standard defines the communication protocol for remote control systems and for monitoring and controlling of geographicaly large processes.

Five documents specify the base IEC 60870-5:

- IEC 60870-5-1 Transmission Frame Formats
- IEC 60870-5-2 Data Link Transmission Services
- IEC 60870-5-3 General Structure of Application Data
- IEC 60870-5-4 Definition and coding of Information Elements
- IEC 60870-5-5 Basic Application Functions

The common standards are based on these documents:

- IEC 60870-5-101 Transmission Protocols, common standards especially for basic remote control tasks
- IEC 60870-5-102 Common standard for the transmission of integrated totals in electric power systems
- IEC 60870-5-103 Transmission protocols, common standard for the informative interface of protection equipment
- IEC 60870-5-104 Transmission Protocols, Network access for IEC 60870-5-101 using standard transport profiles

PROMOTIC communication driver PmIEC8705:

As the most suitable solution for the IEC 60870-5 communication in the PROMOTIC application, is used the PROMOTIC driver:

PmIEC8705 - Driver for communication by protocol of the IEC 60870-5 standard


Communication by OPC server

For the IEC 60870-5 protocol communication with the PROMOTIC system the OPC servers delivered by third parties can be used.
