The introduction of the new communication standard IEC 60870-5-104 to the control stations, defining data exchange based on Ethernet, TCP/IP technology,
requires a transparent conversion between the protocols IEC 60870-5-101 and IEC 60870-5-104.
IPCOMM delivered ipRoute which is responsible for the routing between these protocols.
Each RTU possesses two serial RS-232 interfaces for IEC 60870-5-101 communication. Each RS-232 channel is connected with one gateway.
The routers operate in parallel. The communication is done completely independent from each other.
As hardware platform our SEC2 without rotating parts is used. The SEC2 is mountable on a DIN-rail and equipped with four RS-232 interfaces (V.24 standard)
and one Ethernet adapter 10/100BaseT.
