The IEC 62056 communication protocol is supported via use of an external gateway. The gateway is used to establish the communication with the IEC 62056 slave using DNP3 master on the simulator side and DNP3 slave on the gateway side. One or multiple IEC 62056 slaves (which are typically smart meters) can report analog and digital measurements to the simulator through the gateway. The gateway will receive data from the IEC 62046 slave(s) and retransmit this data to the simulator using DNP3. The equipment used to perform the protocol conversion is the SMP 4/DP gateway made by Eaton. The equipment comes with a configuration software (SMP Manager) that is used to configure protocols involved in the communication chain. Documentation from the gateway manufacturer can be found here. Contact us for more information on this approach.
IEC 62056 is a set of standards for electricity metering data exchange by International Electrotechnical Commission. The IEC 62056 standards are the international standard versions of the DLMS/COSEM specification.

To create a IEC 62056 Master connection a Gateway and the OPAL-RT DNP3 Master driver (OP3232) required. Since the Gateway connects to the Real-Time Simulator via ethernet interface (RJ-45), if additional interfaces are required in the simulator then a physical ethernet port add-on module will need to be added (see OP3821 and I350T4V2BLK).
