    Hi people
    I use iec 870-103 driver of zenon 6.22 sp1 to communicate with protection relay for that i use iec 103 slave simulator to communicate with zenon but it does not work . I can see that zenon send messages to the slave but the slave does replay please can you give me the steps to communicate with an iec slave .

    For zenon version 6.22 we are not providing the support anymore, is too old; actually few years too old, sorry.

    The general rule, in case of any zenon driver - to make the communication work - configure the driver with setting like expected according the manual of the PLC (so in your case: according the manual of this IEC60870-5-103 simulator of a controlled station - slave) and then create zenon variables. For each variable configure their Addressing - responding to the addressing that the data point has in the PLC.

    In zenon Help for the driver there is a small example, see Help > Drivers > IEC870_10332 > Creating variables > Addressing

    the Net address setting is only for zenon, can be any, has nothing to do with Link Address of the slave. What is the link address and section number in the slave you have to find in this simulator (or its manual) and then configure the driver with Net address like you want, e.g. 1, and with Link address and Section number (Common Address of ASDU) like the slave expects.

    Thank you very much for response it is very helpful but i want to know if we have to use rs232 to rs485 converter to use iec 870-103 driver or the diver can use rs232 and rs485 protocol both of them

    if the particular COM port in your computer is RS232 or RS485 (thanks some additional HW and SW installed in the Windows) doesn't mater for any of zenon drivers supporting serial communication.
    In case of iec870_103 driver, as you can see in its settings, you can create many 'Connections' there - each to another Slave. So Slaves on RS485 having unique Link Addresses in the scope of this port.
