GeoEvent SEL Device Connection

I am looking to use GeoEvent Server to get real time data for our transmission assets out in the field.  The device we have that polls Scada is SEL-3530/3530-4.  I am trying to make sure GeoEvent has the capability to connect to the device to poll data frequently.  Here is the list of protocols:

Is anyone familiar with this setup?

Hey @GentryEwing1 

Sorry, I haven't worked directly with that product and don't immediately recognize any of the protocols listed.  But you might be able to make it work. Here is what to look for:

1. The interface you get data from should implement one of the standard transports that are OOTB with GeoEvent (HTTP, TCP, UDP, or Kafka).  They could be either Client or Server connection types.

2. The data protocol is a format that is supported by GeoEvent OOTB (JSON, XML, CSV, RSS).

3. If GeoEvent must request the data, the data request provides a way to obtain data without modifying the request parameters (no updated timestamps or expiring session tokens). Ideally each request would also return an updated value, but this is not required.

Hope this helps.
