AC800F communication using IEC 60870-5-104
I am working with Control Builder Application v.7.1 (it is the one where the project was created a few years ago) and now I need to communicate my data through any protocol via Ethernet. I read that protocol IEC 60870-5-104 works with Ethernet and it is supported by AC800F. Is there a way to transfer my data using this protocol with the version I have? What function block can I use or what settings do I have to change? I am sorry but I am new with Control Builder.
Thanks in advance for your help.
I am not sure about V7.1, but if telecontrol protocol is supported in that version then it will be IEC 60870-5-101 (serial) so your existing version cannot support your need. But IEC 60870-5-104 telecontrol TCP/IP is supported in latest version Freelance 2013, You need to use interface block in hw tree and function block in programming, check Telecontrol IEC 870-5 library under extended function blocks.
So better new version and find out everything you want to know via online help or through documentation on CD you will get with new version. Also you can use modbus TCP in new version.
