The project involved the supply of the protocol conversion software (PKS), which
was installed on the customer's control station server.
ipConvOPC was used for protocol conversion, consisting of the IEC 60870-5-104 protocol stack and OPC DA 3.0, Server, which supplies data to the OPC client (a Matrikon data manager). A node system from the IDS company and the Siemens Spectrum system were linked via the IEC 60870-5-104 protocol.
The control station server, currently running on Windows NT, is to be migrated to Windows XP at a later date.
The Emerson control station server is located at the Linz Mitte combined heating and power station (Austria)..The power station, which went live in the mid-70ies, supplies energy to the Austrian city of Linz , its heating output is fed into the heat distribution network.
