Automate Testing of your SCADA Gateway, Data Concentrator or Protocol Converter

Free Webinar

This webinar features the new Action Based Test Manager now available in DTM v1.6.


Previously held Wednesday, June 28th, 2023


Data Concentrators and Gateways are commonly used to aggregate device communications in complex SCADA systems. Often mapping thousands of data points from hundreds of IEDs, and frequently converting between various communication protocols, configuration is notoriously complex.

To ensure correct configuration, verification testing of point mapping and behavior is commonly required for customer acceptance. Due to scale and complexity, this testing has traditionally been performed manually. Time consuming and prone to error, each point must be tested one by one.  Complexity increases further when protocol conversion is utilized, as characteristics or capabilities unique to one protocol can be translated in unexpected ways which are difficult to test using traditional methods.


Using the Gateway Test Action Manager Module, a powerful new module within Distributed Test Manager (DTM), this testing can now be largely automated. With DTM, data mapping and protocol conversion are tested faster and more reliably than possible via traditional methods. Test coverage can be quickly scaled to thousands of points across datatype, protocol, and devices, and configured tests can be run repeatedly for regression testing, an impracticality using conventional validation methods. Without the need for physical IEDs, testing may now be performed at any stage in the engineering process.


  • Rapidly deploy accurate simulations of each IED within your SCADA network
  • Quickly specify thousands of point-to-point gateway tests across single or multiple protocols, i.e. DNP3, IEC 61850, IEC 60870-5-101, IEC 60870-5-104, IEC 60870-6(TASE.2/ICCP), and Modbus, etc.
  • Execute thousands of individual tests and view detailed results in real-time
  • Use both default and custom Gateway Test Actions
  • Quickly scale up test coverage by exporting Gateway Test Actions for several points to Excel and replicating to a large number of points
