The Graphite platform has upgraded communication capabilities with the addition of DNP3 network support. Working with Graphite Human Machine Interface (HMI) operator panels and Core Controllers, this communication protocol enables monitoring and control to process automation equipment that requires DNP3 support. Native support for the DNP3 network protocol on the Graphite platform enables communication between DNP3 devices and other equipment without the need for third-party protocol converters. The DNP3-enabled Graphite platform provides remote access, data logging, and alarming with the added capability to display data in indoor or outdoor applications. This solutions is designed for industries such as power and utility, oil and gas, and water/wastewater that network outdoor equipment.
