QTester104 version 1.09 Copyright © 2010-2015 Ricardo L. Olsen.
This software implements an IEC 60870-5-104 protocol tester.
IEC 60870-5-104 is a commonly used protocol for data acquisition and control of power substations.
src - multiplatform qt sources, compile with QT 5.2.1 or later on any supported platform.
bin - win32 binaries built with QT 5.2.1.
Can be used to poll substation data and issuing commands.
The base protocol classes are pure C++ without any platform or non-standard library dependencies, can be used to develop software with other compiler/library/sdk.
The software is part of a full substation HMI project (planned to be released eventually), it functions as a protocol module for the HMI, but can be used as a standalone protocol tester.
It's possible to send a General Interrogation ([GI] button) and log messages on the screen.
At the right panel is shown a table with the following data columns:
Protocol [Address] | Last acquired [Value] | ASDU [Type] | [Cause] of transmission | Quality [Flags] | [Count] of transmissions.
The protocol quality flags are:
on / off / tra (double point transition) / ind (double point indefinite) / bl (blocked) / iv (invalid) / nt (not topical) / sb (substituted) / ov (overflow) / t (reg.step transition).
An optional configuration file can be used to store basic parameters, in the form of a INI file (qtester104.ini):
PRIMARY_ADDRESS=1 ; link address of the primary station (computer)
[RTU1] ; communicates with only one RTU in this version
SECONDARY_ADDRESS=1 ; protocol link address of the RTU
IP_ADDRESS=10.63.1.201 ; IP address of the RTU
ALLOW_COMMANDS=1 ; 1=allow sending commands, 0=don't permit commands
Thank you for the interest, please fell free to comment.
