Devices for energy generation, energy transmission, and distribution are part of the critical infrastructure, consequently particularly high demands are imposed on availability and robustness. A reliable data exchange between different devices is the prerequisite for further expansion of intelligent power networks. Several standards have established themselves for integration in data networks. In this regard, the manufacturer of an intelligent device can usually not decide on his own which protocol will be used – this is decided by the plant operator.

For the device manufacturer, the flexible, interchangeable telecontrol solutions offer crucial advantages in the international market. Without changes to the existing software for operational management, control, and regulation, the telecontrol protocol can be installed as an additional software component, no additional hardware is necessary. Thus this step can also still occur in the commissioning phase. Thus, even retrofitting a protocol on an already-delivered system can be easily implemented. Likewise, common operation of master and slave is possible, and so is simultaneous use of multiple communication standards on one controller.
