Scope and object
This technical report applies to telecontrol equipment and systems with coded bit serial data transmission for monitoring and control of geographically widespread processes.
This section of IEC 60870-1 covers those terms which are specifically relevant to telecontrol techniques as well as other terms which are necessary for the understanding of telecontrol standards.
This report also gives, where applicable, references to other dictionaries of electrical and electronic terms.
Terms which are considered to be well known by readers of telecontrol standards are not included in this report. This applies particularly in the field of communications where such terms as, for example, "information" and "bit" are commonplace and well understood.
