IEC 60870-5-103 Communication with 800xA 5.0
One of our Clients has a ABB 800xA 5.0 System. They have a seperate SCADA System of IEC60870-5-103 Relay devices, Which they want to integrate with the ABB DCS.
Can you suggest a best possible way to procede for this?.
It depends on how your customer would like to integrate it's SCADA system in 800xA 5.0. In case they need to keep the existing SCADA, you need to look for a standard protocol between SCADA and 800xA.
Otherwise you have to look to integrate directly IEC60870-5-103 in 800xA. There are different issues in AKS about that. I'm not quite sure if ver. 5.0 directly support this protocol. But for example, you can use AC500 CPU, which supports IEC60807-5-103, as a gateway to AC800M or OPC
