Contact our sales team for information on your specific use case. The communication toolbox package development environment offers industry-standard interfaces and supports all your major communication protocols. With our support for a wide array of communication protocols, you can maintain maximum efficiency even when developing complex system architectures. Interface the testing environment directly with your chosen PLC or hardware control to validate your complete control automation process. The protocols we support include Modbus, IEC61850, C37.118, Ethernet Variable Exchange, CAN Bus, DNP3, and more.
The Modbus Protocols contains components that mimic the communication layers in Modbus applications. By simulating the communication layer of your high-fidelity model, you can minimize the risk of related issues during the deployment phase.
The IEC61850 protocols contains components that mimic the communication layers in IEC61850 applications. By simulating the communication layer of your high-fidelity model, you can minimize the risk of related issues during the deployment phase.
IEEE C37.118 Protocol
The C37.118 standard defines a method for exchange of synchronized phasor measurement data between power system equipment. It specifies messaging including types, use, contents, and data formats for real-time communication between Phasor Measurement Units (PMU), Phasor Data Concentrators (PDC), and other applications.
Ethernet Variable Exchange
Ethernet Variable Exchange (ETH VE) is a simple protocol based on TCP/UDP for exchanging data over the Ethernet. The protocol runs as a bare-metal application with a guaranteed, deterministic execution rate.
The CAN bus toolbox allows you to implement a CAN bus in your models. By simulating the communication layer of your high-fidelity model, you can minimize the risk of related issues during the deployment phase.
DNP3 is an open set of communication protocols mainly used in electric and water industries. It is primarily used in SCADA systems for communication between SCADA masters and RTUs and IEDs. DNP3 can have masters and outstations with point to point or multi-drop topologies.
