A few days ago, a colleague came to me and asked for advice. “I need to sum, more precisely I need to integrate the energy consumption but in a way that at the beginning of every work shift, the number will be zeroed. So, the diagram would be resembling teeth of a saw – it will rise, and rise, and then on the edge of the work shift, it will be zero again. Could this be done in an elegant way – preferably right in the archive without needing to calculate somewhere in the ESL script?”
How we have chosen the default web server for the next D2000 autumn version V12.1.?
A demonstration of how you can replace the Moxa NPort for a Raspberry PI, e.g. during data acquisition from electrometers.
This is a third blog of a series dedicated to topic of archiving on the PostgreSQL platform. In past blogs, I wrote about accelerating the Arcsynchro utility while loading PostgreSQL depositories (Arcsynchro and PostgreSQL depository databases) and about results of migration (Depository databases migration to PostgreSQL in practice). Today's article is related to several months of experience with the operation of a large archive and depositories on the PostgreSQL platform.
Some time ago, you could have read about features of the extended communication protocol Communication – Ethernet/IP. Lately, it was necessary to start communication between the MES system built on the D2000 technology and the control system of a cogeneration unit of a particular customer. The control system is built on the PLCs made by Rockwell company (the main controlling unit was ControlLogix 1756 and smaller auxiliary wer CompactLogix 1769). So, how to establish the communication?
A major change has recently been made by ORACLE, which also affects the use of our D2000 programming platform. The license change prevented the use of Java Runtime Environment (JRE) for commercial purposes without a paid license. How can we solve current situation from the perspective of using the D2000?
Part of the autumn of 2018, I spent by implementing Ethernet/IP protocol into the D2000 KOM process. This blog describes key features of the protocol and pitches in with some subjective opinions.
D2000 by Ipesoft is here for more than two decades. Our people, who are developing software solutions on a daily basis, are behind the success of our story. And the language used is behind their success.
High demands are often placed on SCADA and MES systems regarding availability, functionality, and uptime (ideally 24/7/365). Since every device has some kind of a lifespan and a failure rate, it is necessary to take care of these factors. Using redundancy is a way to increase overall system availability even when one or more components fail.
