FieldServer Technologies has been offering DNP3 solutions for over 10 years, and is now offering DNP gateways ranging from OEM embedded modules to multi-channel DNP3. Each FieldServer DNP3 gateway has successfully passed tests for compliance to DNP3 standards. FieldServer Technologies enables interface between any of the 100+ protocols in the extensive FieldServer protocol library to DNP3.
DNP3 is based on the standards of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Technical Committee 57, Working Group 03 who have been working on an OSI 3 layer "Enhanced Performance Architecture" (EPA) protocol standard for telecontrol applications. DNP3 has been designed to be as close to compliant as possible to the standards as they existed at time of development with the addition of functionality not identified in Europe but needed for current and future North American applications (e.g. limited transport layer functions to support 2K block transfers for IEDs, RF and fiber support). DNP3 has been selected as a Recommended Practice by the IEEE C.2 Task Force; RTU to IED Communications Protocol.
DNP3 is an open and public protocol. In order to ensure interoperability, longevity and upgradeability of, protocol the DNP3 Users Group has taken ownership of the protocol and assumes responsibility for its evolution. The DNP3 Users Group Technical Committee evaluates suggested modifications or additions to the protocol and then amends the protocol description as directed by the Users Group members.
DNP3 is very efficient for layered protocol while ensuring high data integrity. It is based on IEC 870-5 requirements and is suitable for application in the entire SCADA environment. For more information, check out the DNP3 User Group website.
