1 TOP Server – The Ultimate I/O Server Device Integration for Invensys Kevin Rutherford Product Manager Software Toolbox, Inc.

2 Agenda TOP Server Introduction – What is TOP Server – Reasons to Use TOP Server Migration from KEPServer for Wonderware TOP Server Flexibility Features Live Demo TOP Server SAB Allen-Bradley Key Features Modbus Key Features Driver/Industry Suites Overview Future Version Roadmaps

3 TOP Server – What is it? InTouch System Platform Historian Foxboro Control Software (FCS)

4 Native, built-in Suitelink Connectivity – no OPC Link or FS Gateway required!!! Why TOP Server? Existing Applications InTouch 10 IDE Managed Applications InTouch 10 Standalone Applications System Platform Historian Tags – 1 Second Scan 7-10% for TOP Server 33% for Entire Wonderware System Functional Flexible Reliable Standards Diagnostics Documentation

5 Why? Our users tell us… Ease of use and configuration compared to all competitive solutions. Ability to add other drivers in the same architecture, connection, and easy to use system with one source for data access. Head-to-head benchmarking found TOP Server to be superior to DAS solution in consistency and absolute levels of memory and CPU usage. Reliability and flexible options reduce support levels for distributors and end- users.

6 TOP Server is Compatible Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7 Windows Server 2003, 2003 R2 Windows Server 2008, 2008 R2 Windows XP & Windows 7 Standard Embedded 32 and 64-bit OS Support Hyper-V & VMWare Supported Remote Desktop/Terminal Services/ACP ThinMan Supported Marathon and Stratus High Availability Supported

7 TOP Server Stays Current V5.6 V5.7 V5.8 V5.9 V5.10 7/201110/24/11 February 2012 July 2012 October 2012 Fully QC/QA Tested Releases Every 4 months All 2012 dates are +/- 1 month Value Delivered to TOP Server Support Agreement Holders

8 Agenda TOP Server Intro – What, Why, OS support Migration from KEPServer for Wonderware TOP Server Flexibility Features Live Demo TOP Server SAB Allen-Bradley Key Features Modbus Key Features Driver/Industry Suites Overview Future Version Roadmaps

9 Transition from KEPServer for Wonderware TOP Server is now the recommended solution by Invensys for device integration and has been officially certified. Reasons for Transition: – TOP Server has a steady release cycle of 3 new releases per year – Same functionality with current technology support Existing users can migrate easily to TOP Server using their current configurations (Full Forward Compatibility)

10 Agenda TOP Server Intro – What, Why, OS support Migration from KEPServer for Wonderware TOP Server Flexibility Features Live Demo TOP Server SAB Allen-Bradley Key Features Modbus Key Features Driver/Industry Suites Overview Future Version Roadmaps

11 TOP Server Performance Thread-safe application User controllable threading Multi-core and multi- CPU machines fully supported Processor affinity settings TOP Server Process priority settings Runs as service

12 TOP Server System Tags Overview Informational and Functional Tags Accessible from the Client Allow Runtime Changes to Many Channel and Device Parameters – Network Adapter – Device ID – Device Enable/Disable Provide flexibility and ease of controlling communications parameters from the Client Client Scripting functionality can also make use of access to System Tags.

13 TOP Server Statistics Tags Overview Statistics Tags provide diagnostic information about the health of a channel of communications Monitor such diagnostics as: – Pending Reads – Successful Reads – Failed Reads Client can know the status of sends/receives (reads/writes) for your devices Helps minimize communications downtime Just enable diagnostics at the channel level!

14 TOP Server Alias Map Allows Creation of “Friendly” Topic Names Eliminates Channel_Device Syntax Useful for Creating Shorter Topic Names for Use in Clients Can Map Multiple Aliases to the Same Channel/Device Useful For Viewing Valid Topics Scan Rate Override

15 TOP Server Communication Diagnostics Communication Diagnostics – capture protocol packets being transmitted/received over the wire between the server and devices. Now at the device level for most drivers! Allows verification of the proper request/response transmissions and of response timing for performance optimization.

16 Redundancy Support Redundant App Servers Single TOP Server Single PLC network Non-Redundant PLCs

17 Redundancy Support Redundant App Servers Redundant TOP Servers Single PLC network Non-Redundant PLCs

18 Redundancy Support Redundant App Servers Redundant TOP Servers on App Server machines Single PLC network Non-Redundant PLCs

19 Redundancy Support Redundant App Servers Redundant TOP Servers Redundant Communication Paths Non-Redundant PLCs

20 Redundancy Support Redundant App Servers Redundant TOP Servers Redundant Communication Paths Redundant PLCs

21 TOP Server Scan Rate Control 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

22 TOP Server OPC or SuiteLink Server Replacement 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 Configurable SuiteLink Application Name
