2 DxWare AG Company Profile Founded : 2005
VALUE IN COMMUNICATION Founded : 2005 Location : Ennetbürgen, Switzerland Employees : 5 (plus external) Business : Real Time Data Communication (50 man-years of experience) Product : DxNode®Net (ready to run product)

3 Products and Services DxNode®Net DxNode Interfaces Other Services
Platform independent data exchange network using nodes Open, neutral communication layer with functions Based on international standards TCP/IP, XML, Web Services DxNode Interfaces DxOPS.exe  DxNode OPC Server interface DxOPC.exe  DxNode OPC Client interface Other.exe …  DxNode interfaces for proprietary systems Linux …  DxNode Embedded Linux with different interfaces Other Services Driver and interface development Consulting communication concepts Coaching and workshop training courses

4 The independent network to interconnect any type of systems
Product Overview DxNode®Net (Data eXchange Node Network) The independent network to interconnect any type of systems

5 Example – Classical Connection of Systems
Classical: every interface requires its own driver … SCADA 1 ERP/MES … the OPC standard is a relief however, it is not unified and, DCOM bears quite some limits … individual Driver Driver cross connections OPC Client/Server Server Client … maintenance or replacing a system may become expensive HMI x DCS y PLC z SCADA n SCADA 2 … cross connections require more drivers and add to the diversity of interfaces

6 DxNode.Net – Communication Concept
On every system, a DxNode is installed … … all DxNodes together form DxNode.Net … SCADA 1 ERP/MES … the DxNodes are connected via the standard network … OPC XML DxNode.Net DxNode DxNode TCP/IP Network DxNode HMI x DxNode DxNode DCS y PLC z DxNode SCADA n DxNode XML OPC XML OPC XML SCADA 2 … systems are connected via XML protocol or by OPC

7 DxNode.Net – Goals and Features
Low impact between systems by separate communication layer Large/complex installations are maintainable (safeguard investment) Any system can exchange data with any other system (distributed DB) Applicable to Process/SCADA/MES/ERP systems incl. internet High availability and data consistence, even via internet Comfortable multi-user operation, even via internet Transparency by two address spaces for 1. network and 2. application Customized standard adaptable by XML Schema Supports OPC data models (value/time/quality) Simple XML interface incl. validation (XML Schema compliance test) Low cost for interfaces and maintenance

8 DxNode.Net – Potential Applications
DxNode.Net may be applied where ever real time data is exchanged e.g. in the following areas … Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) Management Execution Systems (MES) Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems (SCADA) Process Control and Visualization Systems Building Control Systems Traffic Control Systems Facility Management Process Data Collection and Distribution General Data Processing

10 ? DxNode.Net and OPC UA (Unified Architecture)
DxNode.Net supports OPC with most of the features that are planned for the Unified Architecture however, DxNode provides some more … ? Ready to use installable product No Loss of Events thanks Store&Forward Transition indication for commands (Action=Reaction) Transmission and comfortable operation via Internet Customized data point renaming thanks two address spaces Client and Server functions are configurable (roles) Client or Server can establish connections Any Server-Server and/or Client/Server connections Supports x-fold redundant systems with automatic failover Unified function layer, unified configuration Supervision of connections (Alive), configurable data encryption Open source without platform restrictions
