1 Monitoring Critical Systems & Integration Data Center Applications AFCOM – South Florida Chapter July 1st, Steve Van Duser Eaton Powerware Welcome to the 2008 Eaton Product Conference Refer to the Glossy Product Literature in their binder. Walk thru the various pages of the brochure.

2 What is Critical Systems Monitoring?
More than just power monitoring More than building management More than network management It’s a total monitoring strategy! Networks Power Environmental

3 Examples of critical equipment
UPS - Powerware, MGE, Mitsubishi, IPM, Liebert, APC PDU – Eaton, Liebert, PDI, United Power Switchgear / ATS – Eaton, Caterpillar, ASCO, GE, Russelectric Static Switches - Cyberex, Liebert, United Power Diesel generators - Caterpillar, Onan/Cummins, Detroit Diesel Air Conditioners / Chillers - Liebert, DataAire, Air Flow, York Power Quality Meters – Eaton, GE, Sq-D, Rochester Communications: SNMP, Modbus TCP, Web Browser In our 17 year history we have created interface drivers to well over 500 of the most common power and environmental systems on the market. In addition we continue to write new drivers constantly to leverage the latest in communication capabilities and new products. Typical points lists and driver qualifiers are available from the Eaton Foreseer office.

4 What do I need to know? - Power
Is there a power failure? If there is a power failure, how wide spread is it? Did the generator start? Does the generator have enough fuel to run? Did the transfer switch work? Am I getting bad power from the utility? Am I causing my own problems? How much power am I consuming?

5 What do I need to know? - Environmental
Is there enough cooling? Is the cooling correct? Is one unit working harder than the rest? Is the fire system armed and ready? Is the leak detection armed and ready?

6 What do I need to know? - Networks
Is the network up? Are my devices communicating? Am I getting erroneous alarms? Am I getting notified when alarms occur? Am I getting meaningful data?

7 Sanity check Are you currently monitoring?
Are you only looking at major alarms? Did you have to use the bundled “free” monitoring that came with your equipment? Did you have a major event in the last year and didn’t know how to respond to it? Is one system or vendor claiming responsibility?

8 Vendor Communications and Software
Dry Contacts – Major Alarms Voltage-free relays Serial (RS-485) MODBUS RTU Ethernet Communications SNMP MODBUS TCP/IP Web Browser (HTTP) SMTP ( ) System Software Backward compatibility Migration to web-based

9 Integration into other systems - BMS
Building Management Systems Johnson Controls - Metasys Siemens - Apogee Honeywell – Excel Automated Logic – WebCTRL Suggested Protocols: BACnet Lonworks Profibus

10 Integration into other systems - NMS
Network Management Systems HP – HP OpenView IBM – Tivoli CA – Unicenter Nagios – Open source Suggested Protocols: SNMP Polling SNMP Traps

11 Things get complicated fast…
In traditional U.S. Army slang dating back to the Second World War, a blivet was defined as "ten pounds of manure in a five pound bag," It was applied to an unmanageable situation, a crucial but substandard or damaged tool, or a self-important person.

12 Things to look out for Are all your eggs in one basket?
Is the BMS or NMS really sending alerts from your critical equipment? Are you getting the information you need? Are you able to see things on your own computer? Are you blocked into a corner? No vendor is perfect…”he said she said”

13 Where do I start? Check for device communication capabilities
Is anything connected to the device communications port? Is it Ethernet or serial or alarm contacts? What was provided with the equipment from the vendor? Are you able to do this yourself?

14 “The” foundational protocols
IP- Internet Protocol (built for addressing & routing) Those switches we talked about address & route TCP/IP- Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol Guaranteed packet delivery Web surfing, file transfers, … Session oriented (think like a telephone call) UDP/IP- Universal Datagram Protocol/Internet Protocol Instant messaging, speech, streaming Session-less (think like a baseball)

15 “S” is for simple, “P” is for protocol
Remember the bookends: “S”imple and “P”rotocol SNMP- Simple Network Management Protocol SMTP- Simple Mail Transfer Protocol SFTP- Simple File Transfer Protocol SNTP- Simple Network Time Protocol NTP- Network Time Protocol FTP- File Transfer Protocol DHCP- Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol POP3- Post Office Protocol [mate to SNMP] HTTP- HyperText Transfer Protocol

16 Today’s world - I get my news online!
Sounds Complicated – Where do I start! If it’s not easy to use, you won’t use it! Start by surfing the Web, everyone can do that………

39 What is a Web-enabled Gateway?
A Web-enabled Gateway is a critical component in a web-based communications architecture The gateway converts field bus protocols, that are local to the devices, up to the Ethernet network that is accessible via the Local Area Network (LAN) to a standard web browser. It generally supports up to 64 devices using 2 ports Upstream: Internet Protocol Web browser, Power Xpert Software or 3rd Party Software Web/SNMP TCP/IP ModBus TCP/IP Downstream: Field Bus Protocols Eaton or 3rd Party Devices INCOM ModBus RTU

40 Integrate Diverse Systems
Integration of many systems to a single Ethernet Gateway via Modbus RS-485 Diesel Gen UPS Switch Gear ATS Static Switch PDU CRAC Fuel Management Seq of Events Power Quality Meters Battery Monitor Chillers Leak Detect Temp/Humidity Network Mgr Building Mgr Branch Circuit Monitor Single web browser console to: Simplified Training Consolidated Alarms Time Synced Event History Interface to: BMS, NMS, Inventory & Trouble Ticket By taking this open communication approach Foreseer can bring all of your systems to one single portal, one piece of software, one central location for all alarm notifications. By doing this alarms can be intelligently filtered as to appropriate individuals or groups depending on type or severity of alarm. Time of day and day of week sensitive notification as well as escalation schemes can easily be established. Since all of these systems are now coordinated to one central clock (potentially to 1ms accuracy) the event history reads chronologically greatly enhancing forensic event analysis. This is also the where Foreseer can interface to a number of third party systems such as Network management or building management systems, trouble ticketing and inventory control products. Foreseer can even serve as a communication gateway to allow equipment to communicate in languages they are not natively equipped for such as SNMP to the NMS (Network Management System) from a legacy chiller plant.

Here you can see a combination waveform display showing all three phases in time sync coordination. No need to create transparencies of the three phase and attempt to line them up. Independent phase cursors can be overlaid to display critical amplitude values and the appropriate 1ms time stamp. Time period differences can be obtained by a click of the mouse. These files can be saved and ed to external experts for detailed analysis. Remember using time synchronization, these files and those from Sequence of event recorders can be compared at 1ms intervals for cause and effect analysis of breaker trips, UPS responses and so forth.
