In this project coupling computers from the german company Dr. Graband &
Partner GmbH are used to connect 53 railway point heater controls to the ipConv
protocol converter. The Dr. Graband & Partner GmbH, Master
protocol stack was implemented for the TCP/IP network communication.
The Vicos RSC control centre is connected to the ipConv protocol
converter via the IEC 60870-5-104, Slave protocol stack using the existing network.
There is also an NTP server available in this network. The ipConv protocol
converter is a client of this server, as well as an NTP server for the coupling
computers. This makes time synchronization between two different networks
Universal protocol converter for highest degree of flexibility
