  • NI-Industrial Communications for DNP3

Issue Details

  • Can NI OPC Server communicate with a device using the DNP3 (DNP 3.0) protocol?
  • I have a device that uses the DNP3 protocol.  Can I make the NI OPC Server a DNP3 Master?


As of NI OPC Server 2016, NI OPC Server does not support the DNP3 protocol. 
If you need to communicate to a DNP3 device from LabVIEW or from an NI device, you can use the LabVIEW Driver for DNP3 Master and Outstation Support that provides a LabVIEW API for DNP3 communication.
