This library provides support for the Companion Standard 101 (CS101) and 104 (CS104) of the IEC standard series for telecontrol applications (IEC 60870-5) and is commonly used in communication between a central station (controlling station) and an outstation (controlled station) in electrical power systems.
The C source code library allows a fast and cost efficient implementation of the IEC 60870-5-101 and IEC 60870-5-104 protocols into embedded devices and applications. The APIs are designed to be very easy to use and flexible. The library is written in C (C99 compliant to provide maximum portability). Due to its hardware and platform independent design it can be easily deployed on most platforms.
