Detail PROTOCOL CONVERTER RELAY KITZ Relay AREVA
1. INTRODUCTION This document details the VDEW/ IEC60870-5-103 KITZ protocol converter. It describes the operation and features of the unit in sufficient detail to allow users to interface the unit to other equipment. The VDEW/ IEC60870-5-103 KITZ ( KITZ204) will provide an interface between K and L Range relays, and either a VDEW protocol or IEC60870-5-103 protocol-based master station. The KITZ204 units therefore allow integration of K and L Range relays into either a system with an existing VDEW master station or a system with an IEC60870-5-103 master station. One KITZ204 unit can be connected to up to eight relays. The KITZ204 provides VDEW fixed messages for specific K and L Range relays only. Refer to Section 6.3 for a list of these relay types. The KITZ204 provides only the Generic Services of IEC60870-5-103 for other Courier-compatible devices. The KITZ204 provides only standard VDEW fixed messages ( “ public codes” ) ; it does not provide any “ private codes” . The KITZ204 has a Real Time Clock which timestamps data to 1ms resolution. The front RS232 port allows a Courier master station to gain local access to the connected relays and to the KITZ204 itself for configuration purposes. The conversion between the K-Bus Courier protocol and the VDEW/ IEC60870-5-103 protocol performed by the unit is transparent to the VDEW/ IEC60870-5-103 master station equipment.
