In the areas of energy and transport, but especially in the water & wastewater and oil & gas sectors, plants often extend over very large areas. An optimal plant overview of the decentralized process areas is absolutely necessary. With the help of telecontrol technology, the outstations are connected via WAN to one or more central control centers and monitored and controlled in front of them.
The telecontrol protocol according to standard IEC60870-5-101/104 also offers solutions for this. With IEC60870-5-101/104, the widely distributed process stations, so-called RTUs, can also be connected safely and efficiently to one or more control centers over long distances.
Based on the SIMATIC S7 controllers and TIAP, Siemens offers solutions for IEC60870-5-101/104.
Participants will be able to structure, parameterize and start up an IEC 60870-5 RTU based on the SIMATIC S7-PLCs S7-1200, Distributed Controller ET200SP and S7-1500.
