Building Scalable Automation Systems in Visual Studio.NET Introduction to OPC Systems.NET Win Worrall Applications Engineer & Developer Direct Line: +1 (704)
Agenda Introduce OPC Systems.NET General Architecture New OPC Gauge.NET Live Demo – Creating SCADA/HMI Screens Live Demo – Deploying Applications Live Demo – Web Applications Summary Questions & Answers
Purpose Build Complete HMI/SCADA Solutions Easy configuration: easy User Interface Windows, Web (Ajax) & Mobile Development Tools Easy Deployment: SmartClient Technology Data Logging, Reporting with Notifications Trending in Windows or via Web Pages Alarm Logging with Notifications Open API – lets you control the software OPCSystems.NET solves the following needs:
Benefits OPCSystems.NET provides these benefits Data can come from any OPC DA Server and/or Databases Math Engine, for dynamic calculations to Tags etc. Scalable System, Service based architecture Multi-Threaded for faster, and more Reliable operations Buffers data, eliminating data-loss for short outages Modular, components available separately or as a suite 100% Managed Code for all versions of Visual Studio.NET OPC Self-Certified, for assurance in quality NO MORE DCOM HEADACHES
OPC Server PLC DCS Other Database Your App? Data Source Other OPC Systems.NET Services YOUR Custom Applications (Windows, Web, Mobile etc) Data Logging Alarming Reporting Trending Batching Bridging Data Consumers How it works… OPC Systems.NET Service (Tag Repository) Other OPC Systems.NET Services
Reliable Connections Tag Repository individually “caches” data to each client If a client goes temporarily offline, it will “catch- up” on the next update. Applies to ALL OPC Systems.NET Components (data logging, alarms, WinForms, WebForms etc.) OPC Systems.NET Service (Tag Repository) Client Application QueueQueue Local Client Application QueueQueue Network Client Application QueueQueue Internet
Scalability OPC Systems.NET Service (Tag Repository) Client Application(s) Add more OPC Systems Bridge them together… OPC Systems.NET Service (Tag Repository) Client Application(s) Across Internet OPC Systems.NET Service (Tag Repository) Client Application(s) Across LAN
New - OPC Gauge.NET No programming required, just define the properties Circular and Sliding Gauges Each gauge can support up to 4 axis with up to 4 needles and 5 ranges per axis for a total of 16 values per gauge. Access both local and remote Tag Parameters for values and alarm limits Assign tag values to more than just the Value. Full programmatic support for modifying all properties
Live Demo Collect Tag data from an OPC Server Create a small WinForms HMI Simple data display Add some Charting and Alarming controls Deploy our application Create a small WebForms HMI
