DNP 3.0 Master/Slave Network Interface Module with Quality Flag for Quantum


Discontinued: No new product for sale. More Info

The DNP 3.0 Master/Slave Network Interface Module with Quality Flag is a single slot, backplane compatible DNP 3.0 interface solution for the Schneider Electric Quantum or Unity platform. This module provides highly configurable support of both DNP 3.0 Master and Slave implementations. The addition of the Quality Flag helps to insure data reliability for critical or time sensitive communications.

特性 优势

The module supports DNP Subset Level 2 features and some of the Level 3 features allowing the many SCADA and field devices supporting the DNP protocol to be integrated into the Quantum or Unity platform. The module acts as an input/output module between the DNP network and the Modicon backplane. The data transfer from the Quantum or Unity processor is asynchronous from the actions on the DNP network. Databases are user defined and stored in the module to hold the data required by the protocol.


The PTQ-DNPQ module is the ideal solution for many applications where DNP 3.0 Master/Slave protocol connectivity must be added to a Modicon Quantum system when requiring the use of the Quality Flag.

The DNP solution is designed to address the expanding interest in the DNP 3.0 protocol. The protocol was developed for the Power Utility industry and is recommended by the IEEE for RTU-IED communication applications. Additional industrial applications are quickly arising in the Water/Wastewater and Oil and Gas industries.
