DNP3 UDP vs TCP Configuration

Category: Cellular Communications, SCADA

The DNP3 (Distributed Network Protocol v3) is a communication protocol designed for interaction with control (such as SCADA – Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) systems. Power Monitors has recently introduced a new line of monitors. Boomerang voltage monitors have been designed to integrate not only with PMI’s proprietary Canvass power quality data portal, but also with the SCADA systems used for electrical utility monitoring and control operations. Specifically, this paper will discuss the differences between the two Ethernet-based communication configuration options: TCP and UDP.
