  • 9. Copyright © 2014 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All Rights Reserved. FactoryTalk Services Platform Overview 9 • Common software license management for all FactoryTalk products Activation • Common address lookup of resources that are shared among FactoryTalk enabled products Directory • Common security authority for all FactoryTalk components in the system Security • Common diagnostic messaging sub- system across all FactoryTalk products Diagnostics • Comprehensive record of any changes made to the manufacturing system Audit • Enterprise-wide access to real- time manufacturing data Live Data • Enterprise-wide notification to real-time alarms and events that require action Alarms and Events

  • 11. Copyright © 2014 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Why a Stand-alone FT Directory Host? 11  System Start-up  Recommended that the FTD is the first FactoryTalk component to start, and the last to stop.  Patching/Upgrading  Dedicated host results in minimum system downtime with fewer components to patch and less affect upon reboot.  Redundancy  While redundant servers (e.g., HMI, Data, Alarm) can function properly in the absence of the FTD, the lowest risk scenario is FTD uptime.

  • 21. Copyright © 2014 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All Rights Reserved. HMI Server Considerations 21  Maximum number of SE HMI servers that can be hosted on a single computer is 1.  HMI servers supported in an application is 10 for non-redundant and redundant servers.  Redundant servers are limited to 5 in versions earlier than v7.0 of View SE.  How do licenses get served?  From 1st to last, as projects load in the application  FactoryTalk View HMI Servers look for lowest key first  This prevents the 25 display server from using a 100 display key

  • 24. Copyright © 2014 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All Rights Reserved. When to Use Multiple HMI Servers 24  Load balancing  Application server limits reached.  Large number of clients for single application.  Logical or Physical areas  Ability to take down one HMI server for maintenance without affecting entire system.  Expansion  Grow an application by adding a new line, duplicate existing Line 1 HMI server into new Line 2 HMI server.  Security  Creating multiple servers allows security configuration at an area level.

  • 52. Copyright © 2014 Rockwell Automation, Inc. All Rights Reserved. Design a View SE Distributed System 53 Design a FactoryTalk View SE Network Distributed system for a customer with the following criteria.  The plant is divided into 2 areas.  The first consists of Small Production Line 1 and Production Line 2.  This area of the plant runs from 8 AM to 5 PM and power is turned off outside these ours to conserve energy.  There is a need for 240 screens and about 5000 alarms.  Customer is requesting redundancy for their alarms in this area.  The second is made up of Production Line 3. This area runs 24/7.  In this area, there is a need for 251 screens and 10,000 alarms.  Customer is requesting full redundancy (HMI , Alarms, and Data Servers) for this area.  There is a need for 1 Engineering workstation, 10 Read/Write thick clients  Some displays have to be made available to the plant manager laptop without installing any Rockwell Software on it.  The customer has provided 5 servers, 1 engineering workstation and 10 operator workstations.
