The ICCP-TASE.2 Extensions for MMS-EASE Lite (ICCP Lite) brings the internationally accepted Intercontrol Center Communications Protocol (ICCP) standard per IEC60870-6 TASE.2 to the realm of intelligent electronic devices (IED) and other embedded systems for real-time data exchange in control center and power plant dispatching applications. The Intercontrol Center Communications Protocol (ICCP) is an international standard (IEC60870-6 TASE.2) to enable exchange of real-time data between the control centers of different utilities over wide area networks (WAN). ICCP-TASE.2 is being used world-wide to provide real-time data exchange between control centers, substations, power plants, EMS, SCADA and metering equipment within the electric and gas utility industries. Applications range from small regional power dispatching networks to large supra-national transmission systems. The ICCP-TASE.2 extensions to MMS-EASE Lite is the latest advancement in ICCP-TASE.2 technology from SISCO that allows ICCP-TASE.2 to be applied in relays, meters, RTUs, and other IEDs cost effectively with minimal engineering effort.
The benefits of ICCP(Tase.2) are:
- High level interface simplifies design and allows the OEM to get their products to the market fast.
- Portable source code allows adaptation of ICCP-TASE.2 to virtually any computing environment supporting an ANSI C compiler.
- Resource efficient implementation allows ICCP-TASE.2 to be applied in small devices.
- Supports ICCP-TASE.2 Blocks 1, 2, 4, and 5 as both client and server for V1996-08 and V2000-08.
The Key features are:
Modular source code is portable to any real-time operating system such as Linux, QNX®, VxWorks®, pSOS® and many others
ANSI compatible C source code works with MMS-EASE Lite
Supports blocks 1, 2, 4 and 5 of IEC 60870-6 TASE.2 for both clients and servers
Supports V1996-08 and V2000-08 including millisecond timestamps and all changes reported
Operates over TCP/IP Eithernet networks for local and wide area networks
Supports operation of ICCP-TASE.2 and IEC 61850 over a single physcial network connection
