If the application layers on the IEC 60870-5-101 and the IEC 60870-5-104 side are largely
compatible, ipRoute is the tool of your choice.
Configuration of the individual information objects is not needed,
only interface and general communication parameters must be defined. ipRoute is very easy to
configure and has proven its worth in many projects.
If the IEC 60870-5-101 - and/or IEC 60870-5-104 devices are not mutually compatible,
i.e. address spaces do not match, information representation is different, we
recommend using ipConvLite and ipConv.
This allows the devices to be decoupled to a
great extent. Unlike ipRoute, these converters require configuration of information objects,
which can easily be accomplished using an Excel spreadsheet.
