Introduction
DL/T645 is a Chinese national standard protocol for data exchange between electricity meters and data acquisition systems. It defines the communication protocol, data format, and transmission methods for collecting electricity consumption data from meters. DL/T645 plays a crucial role in the smart grid infrastructure in China, enabling efficient metering, data collection, and management of electricity usage.
 
Modbus is a widely used communication protocol in industrial automation for connecting various electronic devices, such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs), sensors, and actuators. It is a simple, open protocol that facilitates the exchange of data between devices over serial or Ethernet connections. Modbus is known for its ease of implementation and versatility, making it popular in many industrial applications for real-time data communication.
 
IEC 104 is an international standard communication protocol used in the power utility industry for telecontrol of electrical substations. It enables remote monitoring, control, and automation of power systems by defining the format and rules for transmitting data between control centers and substations. IEC 104 provides reliable, secure, and high-speed communication for supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems in power grid operations.
 
The importance of these protocols lies in their roles in enabling efficient data exchange, control, and monitoring in industrial and energy systems. DL/T645 facilitates accurate electricity metering and data management in the context of power distribution in China. Modbus simplifies communication between various industrial devices, contributing to streamlined automation processes. IEC 104 ensures reliable and secure communication for real-time monitoring and control of electrical substations in power utility networks. Each protocol serves specific needs within the industrial and energy sectors, playing a critical role in ensuring operational efficiency, data accuracy, and system reliability.

 
Product Description
