Our Recent Successes per our Partners… <br />Claire Cerrato, General Manager, Automation Software for GE Fanuc <br />&quot;Kepware offers leading support for GE Fanuc hardware products today,&quot; said Claire Cerrato, General Manager, Automation Software for GE Fanuc. &quot;And, we look forward to working with them on GE Fanuc protocols and leveraging their expertise with other protocols in the industry. This collaboration will deliver industry-leading communications, with a tight integration to GE Fanuc HMI/SCADA solutions.&quot; Craig Resnick, Research Director - ARC Advisory Group“The architecture and design of the Kepware products is outstanding, Kepware truly understands delivering quality products that facilitate the deployment of totally interoperable and reliable solutions. Many vendors resell and re-brand versions of the KEPServerEX product. Kepware&apos;s OPC certification automatically applies to all these products. Future vendors that partner with Kepware, will instantly benefit from OPC certification that Kepware offers.&quot; <br />

  14. 14. LinkMaster Benefits<br />A Data bridge Between Multiple OPC Servers or Multiple Drivers in the same Server or Server & Client<br />Support Multiple Data Transfer Rates Using LinkGroups<br />Concentrates data from multiple PLC’s into one Device <br />Acts both as client and server<br />Built in Redundancy & Reconnects with OPC Servers<br />Simple Drag and Drop Programming<br />
  15. 15. Key LinkMaster Features<br />Event Viewer Included with the LinkMaster package is a stand alone event monitoring application called the EventViewer. The EventViewer is a 32-bit Windows application that monitors and displays events occurring on any running LinkMaster application, either remotely or locally, allowing multiple LinkMaster systems to be monitored concurrently.<br />Built-in RedundancyThis feature allows a pair of LinkMaster machines to operate in redundant pairs where one LinkMaster machine operates as the &quot;Primary&quot; node and the other as the &quot;Secondary&quot; node. When the &quot;Primary&quot; node fails, the &quot;Secondary&quot; node promotes itself and takes over the role of the primary. When the &quot;Primary&quot; node comes back up again, the &quot;Secondary&quot; node demotes itself and the &quot;Primary&quot; node performs the data transfer once again. <br />
  16. 16. RedundancyMaster Benefits<br />If an OPC Server Failure Occurs, RMSwitches to a Secondary OPC Server Automatically<br />Easy Setup - No Programming or Application Changes Required<br />Supports Multiple OPC Server Pairs<br />Add Redundant Data Collectionto any OPC Applications<br />Available Failover Modes Hot, Warm, and Cold<br />
  17. 17. RedundancyMaster “Connection Mode” Features<br />Cold (Active machine only):   In this mode, the application will only connect to one underlying server at a time. On startup, a connection to the primary server will be made and all client related requests will be forwarded onto the primary. In the event that the connection to the primary fails, or communications to the primary is lost, a connection to the secondary will be made. If the redundancy application is unable to obtain a connection to the secondary, it will continue to ping-pong between the two servers until it makes a successful connection. The &apos;cold&apos; connection mode minimizes the amount of system resources It also reduces network traffic since there is no need to poll the inactive machine in addition to the active machine, as in other modes<br />Warm (Both machines, subscribe to items on active machine):   In this mode, the application will attempt to maintain a connection to both the primary and secondary servers at all times. On startup, the application will initialize data callbacks for the primary server only. In the event that the connection to the primary fails, or communications to the primary is lost, a data callback will be initialized for the secondary server. Periodically, both servers will be pinged to determine if the connection is still valid. <br />Hot (Both machines, subscribe to items on both machines):   In this mode, the application will attempt to maintain a connection to both the primary and secondary servers at all times. On startup, the application will initialize data callbacks for both primary and secondary servers so that both servers will send data change notifications. The data received from the primary server will be forwarded onto the client. In the event that the connection to the primary fails, or communications to the primary is lost, data received for the secondary will immediately be forwarded onto the client. In either case, writes will only be forwarded to the active server.<br />
  18. 18. Data Logger Benefits<br />Provides Basic logging functions with KEPServerEX<br />Trigger data logging according to Date Change, Time, and/or Expression<br />Allows Logging to ODBC Compatible Database (SQL, MYSQL, & Access)<br />Simple Drag and Drop Configuration<br />Automatic table creation (Narrow & Wide Formats)<br />
  19. 19. DataLogger Tips<br />Logging Data Consumes Disk Space The amount of data you are logging and the frequency at which it is logged can consume hard disk space at a very quick pace<br /> Plan your design The best way to plan your DataLogger project is by determining what you want to do with the data you are logging. Knowing what you are going to do allows you to create your data tables in the most optimized format. <br />Optimizing Data Logging It is possible to tailor the threading model of DataLogger to suit the user&apos;s needs. The DataLogger interprets each DSN as a queue to create a new logging thread. For example, <br />Logging to Microsoft Excel Logging to existing tables in Excel files is supported by DataLogger via the Microsoft Access ODBC driver and the Link Tables feature in Access. Note: DataLogger cannot be used to create new tables in Excel. <br />Data Source Handling of Timestamp and Date/Time Each data source is going to handle the date and time a little differently and in some cases the formatting will be very different. <br />Error Handling – Database full Each data source will have a slightly different error response when the database is full. Typically, KEPServerEX will post an event log message indicating that the RecordSet could not be queried. <br />
