SCADA world?

Previously held on Thursday, September 22, 2022 - 10 AM to 11AM EDT

A gateway is a powerful tool that combines the ability to collect, interpret, translate, and deliver data coming from multiple downstream sources. It simplifies workflow, integrates data from multiple data sources, and adds a layer of security within one application.

Both data concentration and protocol translation are necessary functions in the utility industry to be able to work with the wide variety of protocols used around the globe. Our industry is reliant on gateways and protocol converters to manage & simplify these complex functions. But how is it different than a router? How can this be done across different SCADA protocols with a gateway?

This webinar will look at how data gateways are used in SCADA. We will look at the functions a gateway provides and discuss configurations for data concentrators and protocol converters. Using our SCADA Data Gateway, we’ll demonstrate how to configure a gateway in real world scenarios using protocols like DNP3, IEC 60870-101 & 104, IEC 61850, IEC 60870-6(TASE.2/ICCP), Modbus and OPC.

You’ll learn how to set up:

  • Data concentration of SCADA protocols
  • Different data types by protocol
  • Protocol conversion and data mapping
  • Data collection using:
    • Polling
    • Event polling
    • Data Sets
    • Dynamic Data Sets
  • Commands for different protocols and how they are mapped

Who should attend this course: 

  • Protection & Control Engineers/ Managers
  • System Integrators
  • Software Engineers/Managers
  • Security Professionals


Triangle MicroWorks previously hosted this live webinar in March 2021 to educate on gateway functions and configuration with the release of v5, a newly designed version of the SCADA Data gateway for Linux support only. We are hosting a replay of this webinar with the latest release of v5.1 of the SCADA Data Gateway which now provides both Linux and Windows support. All our customers can now access the newly designed gateway with many new features. You will be able to submit questions during the replay of the webinar.

Stay tuned for a new webinar in October featuring v5.1 and a detailed review of the new features and how to migrate to the latest version.
