IEC 61850 Source Code Library

Our IEC 61850 Source Code Library provides a quick and cost effective way to implement an IEC 61850 Server, Client, GOOSE, or Sampled Values.  The library was designed from the ground up to fully support IEC 61850 services and efficiently use resources.  We offer our Library Components in ANSI-C, C++, or .NET Components for maximum flexibility across many different applications.  

For 25 years, Triangle has provided the diagnostic tools and protocol expertise to our customers to support all their conformance  & certification needs. We will work with you, as needed, to ensure that your implementation of our source code libraries will pass all industry related certification and conformance testing.

The IEC 61850 Source Code Library from Triangle MicroWorks was designed from the ground up with highly optimized code and advanced protocol parsing techniques.  This allows our customers to integrate our code into embedded systems or workstations with low overhead and great performance.  Because it is ANSI C code, our library is processor and operating system independent.  The library incorporates a merged schema that supports SCL files and model definition files for both Edition 1 and Edition 2 of the IEC 61850 standard.  Also, IEC 62351 security has been implemented to support authentication and TLS encryption in the IEC 61850 in the library.
