Operative setup the template "Distributed Network Protocol 3".

The user protocol devices library created to provide access to industrial device's data through network, like to common industrial automation devices and wide resources counters, with protocols simple enough to implement into the User Protocol module, using the presented complex protocols (ModBus, OPC_UA, HTTP) or directly on the internal like to Java language.

Distributed Network Protocol 3 (DNP3) is a set of communications protocols used between components in process automation systems. Its main use is in utilities such as electric and water companies. Usage in other industries is not common. It was developed for communications between various types of data acquisition and control equipment. Competing standards include the older Modbus protocol and the newer IEC 61850 protocol and IEC 61870.

The template implements currently for the client, which uses the followed functions: Confirm (0x00), Read (0x01), Write (0x02), Enable (0x14) and Disable (0x15) Spontaneous Messages.

The protocol implementation is now limited due to tested only together with opendnp3 demo outstation!!!
