Automated Testing of Gateway and RTU Protocol Mapping

This video demonstrates how to test the mapping of a protocol gateway or RTU in an automated test environment.  This demo was shown in our booth at the 2016 DistribuTECH Conference and Exposition in Orlando, Florida. 

The mapping of the protocol gateway is tested by simulating the IEC 61850 IEDs and a DNP3 SCADA Master that connect on either side of the gateway.  The simulation is performed by the Distributed Test Manager (DTM) which tests and documents the mapping of the gateway (in this case the SCADA Data Gateway from Triangle MicroWorks).

The demo illustrates how the Distributed Test Manager (DTM) can be used to test partial systems without needing all components in place and configured.  It also shows that this type of testing can be performed without expensive test equipment to generate signal changes.

This same type of test can be performed for standard SCADA protocols like ICCP/TASE.2, IEC 60870-5 (IEC 104), DNP3, IEC 61850, and Modbus.
