Group Maillist Information
This maillist was established as a result
of discussions at the IEC Technical Committee 57 Working Group 03 meeting
in Lucerne (April 1998) concerning the likely interoperability of products
claiming to conform to IEC 60870-5-101, the desire of users to obtain
"plug and play" products, and how best to help users and suppliers
interpret the standard in a consistent way. The objective of this maillist
is to create a place implementers and users of IEC 60870-5 can discuss
different interpretations of the specifications in an effort to establish
a consensus opinion on each topic.
This maillist is open to anyone with an interest in IEC 60870-5 and
there are no membership fees. Topics regarding any of the profiles (-101,
-102, -103, and/or -104) may be submitted to the maillist. The maillist
is administered by Jim
Coats. We have adapted guidelines similar to the SCADA mailing list
and would like to thank Ian Wiese for the use of these time tested procedures.
This maillist is NOT administered by or for the IEC. While many members
of IEC Technical Committee 57 Working Group 03 may participate in this
maillist, the opinions expressed are not representative of Working Group
03. Anyone subscribing to the IEC 60870-5 User Group Maillist is welcome
to respond to a message. The information provided is simply helpful
advice and no liability for the correctness of the information is given
by the author of each message or by the administrator of this maillist.
If your company has implemented or uses the IEC 60870-5 protocol, please
make sure it is listed on the Implementers
of IEC 60870-5 page. If you know of additional
information you would like to see posted on this website, please notify
We hope that your membership in this User Group Maillist will
provide more insight for your application of IEC 60870-5 and that you
will be able to share your understanding of the protocol with others.
We welcome any suggestions you have for improving the IEC 60870-5
User Group Maillist or Website.
