Remote time-stamp management module
A SCADA Software usually communicates with equipment connected permanently, and dates events using the PC time.
For equipment not connected constantly, e.g. through the switched telephone network (PSTN) or the cellular phone network, the data arrive differed, and must be dated locally.
The role of the Time-stamped data module is to take into account the date and time sent by the remote system for updating files archived by TOPKAPI: logs and curves. The data is then used as if it was acquired in real time.
TOPKAPI can dialog with equipment through a direct link or vendor front ends or units. In remote links through a wired or cellular phone network, the Time-stamped data module must be associated with the modem management library (see associated sheet)
- Possibility to have on the same TOPKAPI supervision system units ot he "Real time" and remote acquisition units.
- Available protocols : in addition to the current "real time" protocols, TOPKAPI supports over 50 protocols implemented specifically by vendors to transmit time-stamped data, among which Jbus-Sofbus (Sofrel), Jbus (Perax), TRSII (Aquaveil-Degremont, Wit), Siemens-Landis and Staefa, Sauter, Johnson Controls, Ewon (ACT'L), Flygt (Mactec), Radcom, Tbox (SEMAPHORE-Technotrade), Napac, ETIC, Technolog, CR2M, etc... (you can consult the available protocols list for Topkapi or call us for more details).
- Hardware: Connection directly by modem or through front end units according to the equipment.
