IEC 60870 Client Component

Available as of Camel version 2.20

The IEC 60870-5-104 Client component provides access to IEC 60870 servers using the Eclipse NeoSCADA™ implementation.

Maven users will need to add the following dependency to their pom.xml for this component:

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.apache.camel</groupId>
    <artifactId>camel-iec60870</artifactId>
    <version>x.x.x</version>
    <!-- use the same version as your Camel core version -->
</dependency>

The IEC 60870 Client component supports 2 options, which are listed below.

Name Description Default Type

defaultConnection Options (common)

Default connection options

ClientOptions

resolveProperty Placeholders (advanced)

Whether the component should resolve property placeholders on itself when starting. Only properties which are of String type can use property placeholders.

true

boolean

URI format

The URI syntax of the endpoint is:

iec60870-client:host:port/00-01-02-03-04

The information object address is encoded in the path in the syntax shows above. Please note that always the full, 5 octet address format is being used. Unused octets have to be filled with zero.

URI options

The IEC 60870 Client endpoint is configured using URI syntax:

iec60870-client:uriPath

with the following path and query parameters:

Path Parameters (1 parameters):

Name Description Default Type

uriPath

Required The object information address

ObjectAddress

Query Parameters (19 parameters):

Name Description Default Type

dataModuleOptions (common)

Data module options

DataModuleOptions

protocolOptions (common)

Protocol options

ProtocolOptions

bridgeErrorHandler (consumer)

Allows for bridging the consumer to the Camel routing Error Handler, which mean any exceptions occurred while the consumer is trying to pickup incoming messages, or the likes, will now be processed as a message and handled by the routing Error Handler. By default the consumer will use the org.apache.camel.spi.ExceptionHandler to deal with exceptions, that will be logged at WARN or ERROR level and ignored.

false

boolean

exceptionHandler (consumer)

To let the consumer use a custom ExceptionHandler. Notice if the option bridgeErrorHandler is enabled then this option is not in use. By default the consumer will deal with exceptions, that will be logged at WARN or ERROR level and ignored.

ExceptionHandler

exchangePattern (consumer)

Sets the exchange pattern when the consumer creates an exchange.

ExchangePattern

synchronous (advanced)

Sets whether synchronous processing should be strictly used, or Camel is allowed to use asynchronous processing (if supported).

false

boolean

acknowledgeWindow (connection)

Parameter W - Acknowledgment window.

10

short

adsuAddressType (connection)

The common ASDU address size. May be either SIZE_1 or SIZE_2.

ASDUAddressType

causeOfTransmissionType (connection)

The cause of transmission type. May be either SIZE_1 or SIZE_2.

CauseOfTransmission Type

informationObjectAddress Type (connection)

The information address size. May be either SIZE_1, SIZE_2 or SIZE_3.

InformationObject AddressType

maxUnacknowledged (connection)

Parameter K - Maximum number of un-acknowledged messages.

15

short

timeout1 (connection)

Timeout T1 in milliseconds.

15000

int

timeout2 (connection)

Timeout T2 in milliseconds.

10000

int

timeout3 (connection)

Timeout T3 in milliseconds.

20000

int

causeSourceAddress (data)

Whether to include the source address

true

boolean

ignoreBackgroundScan (data)

Whether background scan transmissions should be ignored.

true

boolean

ignoreDaylightSavingTime (data)

Whether to ignore or respect DST

false

boolean

timeZone (data)

The timezone to use. May be any Java time zone string

UTC

TimeZone

connectionId (id)

An identifier grouping connection instances

String

Spring Boot Auto-Configuration

When using Spring Boot make sure to use the following Maven dependency to have support for auto configuration:

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.apache.camel</groupId>
  <artifactId>camel-iec60870-starter</artifactId>
  <version>x.x.x</version>
  <!-- use the same version as your Camel core version -->
</dependency>

The component supports 3 options, which are listed below.

Name Description Default Type

camel.component.iec60870-client.default-connection-options.ignore-background-scan

Whether background scan transmissions should be ignored.

true

Boolean

camel.component.iec60870-client.enabled

Whether to enable auto configuration of the iec60870-client component. This is enabled by default.

Boolean

camel.component.iec60870-client.resolve-property-placeholders

Whether the component should resolve property placeholders on itself when starting. Only properties which are of String type can use property placeholders.

true

Boolean

A connection instance if identified by the host and port part of the URI, plus all parameters in the "id" group. If a new connection id is encountered the connection options will be evaluated and the connection instance is created with those options.

If two URIs specify the same connection (host, port, …) but different connection options, then it is undefined which of those connection options will be used.

The final connection options will be evaluated in the following order:

  • If present, the connectionOptions parameter will be used

  • Otherwise the defaultConnectionOptions instance is copied and customized in the following steps

  • Apply protocolOptions if present

  • Apply dataModuleOptions if present

  • Apply all explicit connection parameters (e.g. timeZone)
