1 TOP Server V5.6 – Features and New Release Presenter: Kevin Rutherford Senior Applications Engineer

2 Agenda  Overview of TOP Server  Server Updates/Enhancements  Driver Updates/Enhancements  Live Demonstration  Media Level Redundancy Config.  OPC ProgID Redirect  Coming in V5.7  Summary and Q&A

3 What is TOP Server?

4 TOP Server Server Enhancements  Media Level Redundancy Plug-In  Three Operating Modes  Switch on Failure  Primary Only  Secondary Only  Two Types of Redundancy  Communications Path Redundancy (CPR)  Device Pair Redundancy (DPR) These modes can be combined for greater levels of redundancy

5 TOP Server Media Level Redundancy  Communication Path Redundancy  Same Device  Redundant Communication Paths  Examples  One Device with both Ethernet and Serial  One Device with two Ethernet modules

6 TOP Server Media Level Redundancy  Device Pair Redundancy  Identical Redundant Devices  Same Tags / Same Logic  Device failure does not result in full loss of data

7 TOP Server Media Level Redundancy  Client Item Management with Redundancy  Static Tags  Must be defined in TOP Server for primary and secondary  Client accesses primary device tags only  Dynamic Tags  Client access primary device only  Plug-in automatically mirrors client tags from primary to secondary (affects tag count)  Redundancy System Tags

8 TOP Server Media Level Redundancy  Supported for “Master” Serial and Ethernet Drivers  Most Drivers support Media Level Redundancy  Some Drivers Do Not:  Drivers Requiring 3 rd Party Interface Cards (AB DH+, Modbus Plus, etc.)  “Slave” Drivers (Modbus Unsolicited, etc.)  Drivers Requiring 3 rd Party Libraries (GE Focas, etc.)  Advanced Simulator  AB Data Highway  AB Unsolicited Ethernet  Custom Interface Driver  Dataforth IsoLynx  DDE Client  Hilscher Universal  Memory-Based Driver  Mettler Toledo Serial  Modbus Plus  Modbus RTU Slave Serial  Modbus TCP/IP Slave/Unsolicited  ODBC Client  OPC Client Suite (DA / UA)  Sattbus Serial  Siemens TCP/IP Slave  Simulator  Sixnet UDR  UCON  Yaskawa Memobus Plus

9 TOP Server Server Enhancements  Device Scan Rate Modes  Three Scan Modes  Respect client specified scan rate (Default)  Mimics previous behavior  Request data no faster than…  Sets a scan rate floor  Request all data at…  Sets a fixed scan rate

10 TOP Server Server Enhancements  OPC ProgID Redirect  Maps OPC DA ProgID to TOP Server V5  Useful for:  Migration from 3 rd party servers  Upgrading from TOP Server V4.x

11 TOP Server - New Driver  New Weatherford 8500 Serial Driver  Developed in Coordination with Weatherford International  Support for:  Rod Pump Controllers  Controllers supporting Weatherford 8500 Serial Protocol  Auto Tag Generation by Model

12 TOP Server - New Driver  New MTConnect Client Driver  Shop Floor Devices/Applications  MTConnect Standard(V1.1.0)  Command Support:  Probe  Current  Auto Device/Agent Discovery  Auto Tag Generation

13 TOP Server Driver Enhancements  ControlLogix Ethernet  Serial Gateway Support  Access to Logix controllers via serial port using a Logix Gateway  EtherNet/IP Gateway  Access to EtherNet/IP capable AB Devices via Logix Gateway

14 TOP Server Driver Enhancements  Modbus TCP/IP Ethernet  Applicom addressing support (3 Device Sub-Models)  DNP3 Suite (Ethernet & Serial)  WITS Specification (Phase 3) Support  File Control & Activate Configuration  Torque Tool Ethernet  New Device Model – FEP (Ford Ethernet Protocol variation)

15 TOP Server Driver Enhancements  Fisher ROC Serial / Plus Serial  Increased Max Device/Channel to 255  Mitsubishi Ethernet  Increased address range support  SNMP  Inform support for SNMP V2c/V3 Traps and Notifications  Communication Serialization (Virtual Networking)

16 TOP Server Live Demo  Live Demonstration  Media Level Redundancy Configuration  OPC ProgID Redirect

17 Coming in TOP Server V5.7 (Q4 2011)  New Drivers  Alstom Ethernet Driver  Bristol IP Driver  Lufkin (ELAM) Modbus Driver  Weatherford 8500 Serial Driver – Phase 2  New Features  Remote Configuration
