today.for all of us we'll get started and kick.off the kept fair discovery day 2020..i am your host for the day i am gradual.i represent the marketing.for ats india advantage.thank you for taking time out of your.busy schedule and.agreeing to invest three hours of your.time during this journey.i'm sure this is going to be an exciting.event for you.each year we do the kepware discovery.day to share the knowledge that.kepware has accumulated over the years.with all of you.and help you make most out of your.capper.investments this year due to the ongoing.situation.we had to move the event digital but i'm.sure.next year we will have steve with us.here in india.and we will have a wonderful.face-to-face session.so the speakers for today.ladies and gentlemen we have.nilish can we move to the next slide.please so we have.steve with us who is the senior.application engineer.so steve is joining us from singapore.it's.kind of early evening or late evening.for steve.it is making his time today for us thank.you steve.for your time uh we have taranjit singh.with us today.thank you taranji taranjit is one of our.customers from.adverbs uh adverb is using kepware since.2018 they've.they've made some big gains they've.realized some technical benefits using.kepler.so talanjit will today share.his experience and the experience that.adverb has realized using kepler.products.we have shinu who is our sales leader.for us.he's joining us from our bangalore.automation delivery center head.nilesh who is joining us from our mumbai.office.today is going to be our uh host as well.so on the next slide uh relationship you.can move to the next slide please.this is the agenda that we've packed in.for today.we'll be starting off with a overview of.the organization.a crisp introduction about how we.have originated as an organization where.we are.poised to grow our association with.kepwear.and then steve will share updates about.the latest kepware drivers.kepware releases that we have.then we will have a short break where we.will have.questions coming in from you uh if you.have any questions to ask you can.pop them in the chat window that you.have and.i we cannot promise that we'll be.answering all the questions but we will.be trying to take as many questions as.we can during the course of this event.and the answers that we are not able to.provide we will take them towards the.end.so we have to make sure that we have.ample.discussions flowing we have two question.answer.sessions one towards the middle of the.agenda and one towards the end so i'm.sure we have enough time to cover.all your technical queries post the.short break and question answer session.for 10 minutes we'll be moving over to.the kepware experience by taranji.taranjit will share the journey that.they've had with kepler.and what are the new prospects they see.using kepware's latest drivers and.plugins.then nilesh will take us through the.major drivers.uh that kepler has to offer we move into.the plug-in section where steve and.vivek will share.information around the iot data logger.plugins and advanced stacks.then kept steve from kepware will again.share his expertise on link master and.redundancy master.post that we open the session for a.q a and then we expect to answer.all your questions during that session.as well so you have two.sessions wherein you can kick off your.questions in.and i hope you enjoyed today's uh.journey with us.so nilish can we move to the next slide.so the first uh session would be uh.presided by shino can you please take.over.uh yeah thank you.i hope you can hear me hello.yes we can hear you loud and clear yeah.good afternoon everyone and uh thanks.once again for attending the cafe.discovery day.uh thanks uh steve and taranjit for.joining us.uh today uh.i am shinu and i will quickly run.through a brief introduction and salla.and what we do out there.since most of you have partnered with us.in a way in one way or another.i am not going to take much of your time.and we can.move on nilish next please.uh sarah advantek uh we are a proud team.of our 450 of us.uh we are committed to delivering the.best solutions in.automation software's manufacturing.integration.emea software development and testing.and.we have been in this space for uh over.20 years now.delivering solutions across various.manufacturing industries like pharma.energy chemicals metals automotive etc.with our close to around 15 plus offices.uh across the globe and completed around.2500 plus projects.both in india and globally.currently uh we are now part of the ats.global.group uh who are again an independent.solution provider for smart digital.transformation.for users worldwide and.provide products and services across all.three levels of automation pyramid.which is your control layer execution.and information layer.has had a long term partnership with the.leading solution providers uh like.ga digital uh who in offering various.automation softwares like uh.ifix and simplicity scada history and.web space.etc on sap on me.mia and mes services and solutions.where i'm on mes services and opc router.and bayshore with their cybersecurity.solutions and of course skipway.mileage you can uh go to next slide.please.uh this is just a brief overview uh to.kepware uh the ptc company.uh was founded in 1995 and uh brilliant.industrial leading server as you know it.earlier.in the year 1997 which was actually.adopted by manufacturer all over the.world as an opc server.and uh in 2016 ptz had acquired uh.kepware and as per.one of the surveys or on the ranking of.a fortune 500.annual ranking in 2016 kept where active.customers.include close to 60 percent of top 100.companies in.the world and companies which are not.on the list are not among our normal.normal whole manufacturing customer it's.mostly in the banking insurance.and the retail market i think steve can.probably add in there.and speak about it and.nilesh next please.so salla uh we have been associated with.kepware.for close for nine plus years now.and uh during this time we have built a.strong team of 30 plus engineers who has.shared their expertise and.experience with our 400 plus customers.yeah english next.and uh with did this partnership with.kepware we have.has led to a long lasting association.with many of our sa.sis and oem and i think taranjit is here.joining us from adverb and we have also.been able to complete many projects.and gain trusted relationship in many.with many of the major companies.in india so i think this is it for me.uh probably we can move to the next.thing.thanks once again everyone for joining.us.thank you that was insightful.and now we are moving over to steve.steve joins us as a kepware as subject.matter expert.today and steve is going to take us.through the.kep servers latest releases and updates.see over to you hello everybody.uh thank you again for joining us on.this uh.live webinar so i'm steve i am the.senior applications engineer.in cabwear and um now i'm happy to to be.here to present to you to talk about.this.so on this section we're going to talk a.little bit on the latest updates that we.have for.capwear right specifically the 6.9.so for those who are aware uh or have.been using catware you are.you should know that you know every.quarter or so we will release a new.version so this new version typically.has a new driver enhancements security.patches and things like that.so today we're going to talk about the.latest one which is the 6.9.so this is actually what what i have in.terms of agenda.right so i'm going to just update a.little bit on client ace which is one of.our sdk products.and then we're going to talk about the.server updates followed by.some of the driver updates so so just uh.as a start uh we have a product called.client ace.and the client is we have intention to.to move it towards the end of lifecycle.so uh as of september 6 this year.we have stopped selling the the product.itself.so if you have a kinase running with you.and you have a support.maintenance that is active you will.continue to be supported through our.typical tech support channel.or even our distributor which is um sala.right.uh if you have any questions or things.that you want to ask you can also check.out our faq sheet on.cadbury.com so the links are over there.and that's really what we have for.client is.so in terms of server updates uh for 6.9.we have added a bunch of new tab counts.uh the ways to look at new tag counts so.for example.in the underscore system tags we now.have a underscore.active tag count so for those who are.not familiar with.the underscore system tags for every.device that you create.in cap server ex it comes with.underscore system.text and each of these underscore system.tags provide data.about the health of the channel uh and.some some metadata about the channel so.today we added the.underscore active tag count so what it.does is that it allows you to see how.many texts are actually being poked.instead of you know the static tag.hounds then on the ui level so if you.open the configurator tab.you can see that we added a new column.that says static text.or whether a new row a new row that says.static text so so that.that really is the uh that really is the.new features that we have.uh on on the in terms of the server.updates.the next major server update that we we.have is the.adding of support of deletion of custom.user and groups.so for for users who are not aware we.actually have a way to do.user management under the cap server.admin.and inside there you can actually create.users so.prior to 6 9 what we typically do is.that if you want to remove a user.the only thing you can do is that you.can disable them and then you hide them.but from 69 onwards we now have the.capability to delete those users so you.can.completely remove it from your user.manager.the next thing that we added is in the.administrator group.so the the administrators now are able.to as long as you are in the.administrator group that means you have.your user that is.under the administrator group you can.now import and export the.users okay next we actually remove.support for resetting administrative.passwords over the command line.so you can no longer reset the admin.passwords.and last but not least descriptions are.no longer visible in the user manager.tab.okay they can only be viewed by by.editing the user or group properties.so if you look at the screen i have over.here this is actually part of the.configuration api.so the the support for the deletion of.the custom users can now also be done.programmatically using the delete method.right so that's the config api.and over here is a picture of how the.user manager looks like so again you.would go under the cap server at min2.which is a small little icon.at your system tray at the bottom right.corner if you right click.um settings and then you will you will.pop up this window and go under user.manager.and that's really where you will see the.different users so you can see that i.have a bunch of groups.and these are the users so now you can.actually select the user.and click this to delete it and if you.are part of the admin group you can.actually export.the data out and import it into you know.maybe another cap where maybe i'm doing.a migration.so you can can do all that right now.so next we're going to talk about the.driver updates.so as you can see the driver updates are.pretty comprehensive i will not go.through all of them.but we for the ones in both those are.the ones that we will.talk about today right in the interest.of time.so first we have the funnel forecast.driver enhancement.oops i just realized i have a window.okay.the the final forecast enhancement so if.the.we the funnel driver if you're using the.forecast ethernet driver today.uh we have added the cnc rd axis data so.that allows you to see the machine.position of the x y z axis and on top of.that we added the cnc.exe prg name which is actually a tag.that.displays the program that is being.executed.so you can see like what what are the.progress that is being executed by the.cnc machine or rather.the forecast machine and you can also.see some of the rv axis data.and and the last one would be uh quite.interesting it's actually the cnc rd.dynamic 2 call.and what this tag in particular allows.is that they they actually expose some.of the information such as alarms.position values feed rate spindle speed.sequence number and program number.so so in that sense we this enhancement.will allow you to get more data.from your cnc machine if you are using.this driver today.next we have the opc ua client driver so.if you're using a ua client driver today.we now.enhanced on the support of importing and.reading the.opc ua notes so so you can see that.there is a list.uh that is being listed over here so.these are the.uh some of the structured uh structured.data type.specified in opc ua and and we actually.support it right now.and if you look at this screen this is.how the data will look like.if you pull out from the uh the ua.server that has.data that looks like that right.the next thing that we did is that we.added the ability to read.value attributes with the extension.objects of supported data type.we enhance the support of reading.additional members of the server complex.data type object.so now you can actually pull out more.information about the opc ua server that.you are connecting to.or rather you know cap west opc ua.server so for those who are not familiar.uh in opc ua each of the opc ua server.has a complex data type object.that describes the capability available.methods.and certain parameters about the ua.server so that you as a ua client when.you connect to it.you're able to tune your ua client.accordingly to meet.the specification that is required by.the ua server.okay last but not least we fixed an.issue where the interface will always.report the value of elements in boolean.array.as false so this is actually some one of.the.uh one of the bigger enhancements that.we have for opc ua.moving ahead uh we we plan to to make.the ua driver as.as comprehensive as possible so so.you'll be seeing a lot of ua client.development on on tap osm.next we have the top two so uh for those.who are using talk to.which is pretty rare but but we added.support for reading and.writing tightening programs from the.power focus 6000 so we are using an.atlas coco.uh talk tool for example uh these are.the added uh devices that we.we have and we actually added some of.the stanley qpm nut runner series as.well.so you know if you are using a talk tool.or your talk to user today we we added.some capability for you to.connect to more of these tools.so if you want to see a complete change.lock you know there was like a dead wage.we showed like all the different drivers.update.uh please visit the website web link.that i'm showing here the release note.web link.so so from there you can actually have a.complete change log of.uh of all the drivers that we have which.version.where they came out and some of the bug.fix that we list.on over there so you'll be a pretty.comprehensive changelog.so the next section i'm going to talk.about you know as a as a way to.finish the session on the uh the product.updates is.to kind of provide some of the.forward-looking information so just be.aware that the forward-looking.information that i'm going to show right.now.are subjected to changes right so it's.not a finalized thing but i just wanted.to you know.to share with you guys uh some of the.the forward-looking stuff that we.will be releasing so in six nine which.is under the.the last release uh pretty much we we.focus primarily on the security staff uh.driver maintenance you know.all the different drivers that we fixed.and the ua client driver enhancement.right the complex uh you know the.structured data type that we support.that we talked about.and for the tks which is the thing works.catware server we added.active directory integration so the tks.is actually the.uh subscription version of capwear no so.it's just a different branding.but but the ad integration is over there.uh for the next release which is the.upcoming 610 release.uh it is uh we we are looking at the.one of the most important thing is the.udd driver so the udd driver is also.known as the universal device driver.so the universal device driver is a very.long name.allows you to do scripting in order to.pass out custom protocol.so if today you are a user of uconn you.might be familiar with some of the.concept.just that instead of the transaction.editor which is the ui based.uh the ui based design we now have a.more.more flexible scripting kind of.environment for you to.take in data and pass it out you know.accordingly.so it's more flexible in a sense then.for the.uh for yokogawa we are going to release.the gx driver which.allows you to connect to the gx devices.and last but not least the siemens tia.porter.exporter version 16. right.then on the tke which is the tin works.capware h.we are going to have an initial.container offering.so for those who are not familiar with.the tke which is the thing works cap web.h.it is the linux offering of capsular ex.which was released.somewhere this year so uh now we are.at 1.1 and we are heading towards 1.2 so.that's that's really the.most of the stuff that we're going to.talk about in the next session of my.presentation.so in the future these are some of the.key things that we will be looking at.uh in particular the licensed server.support.which allows you to kind of manage the.tk the tke's.license so you can actually manage it.through a single software you know as a.server and then you can.manage it probably properly uh we are.going to also look into the opc ua.gateway which is part of our commitment.to opc ui.with additional features like enhanced.tunneling browse through function.further complex data type and meta.support.in terms of enterprise management we are.also looking to have.a way to interact with the license.server that will enable you know easier.way of provision as well as some server.health.monitoring and multi-instance.configuration.and last but not least for the tke we.are looking to add in.further enhancement to support.additional os.arm support and as well as.a better docker support as well so these.are some of our future.future development you know which is.typically in the next year or so.uh and features like that.and that that's really the end of the.first section right.so as a reminder if you have any.questions feel free to type into the q a.box.i'm going to go into the next section.which is the tin worst catwalk age.overview okay so so be when we when we.started the.tke which is the teamwork camera age.development we actually work with a.couple of system integrators.uh and and identify some of the.challenges that.they encounter so the first problem is.the demand for digital.so as as you know as as engineers who.are in the industry you you should know.that you know there's like a wave of iot.or interconnected devices coming along.and and what that really means for ot.engineers is that there's a no there's a.new demand.where we need to connect the machines to.new platforms that we have never done.before.right and and on top of that for machine.builders there's a demand for smart.machines so customers are looking and.asking whether the machines can be.connected.can be monitored remotely can they have.some.on-board alarm functions and things like.that so those those are all.putting up increasing the demand for.digital or digitization.so so as mentioned earlier on because of.this whole movement uh.there is an increase in need of.connectivity to various cloud platforms.right cloud platforms as well as its.entry system so for.for some of your customers they they.have an itd bumper and they want to.embark on digitization.so instead of cloud services they may.develop their own on-prem.on-prem protocols and usually these are.pretty it-centric rather than ot centric.right and last but not least when when.we do all this right we cannot forget.the the our traditional ot requirement.where we still need to connect.and display the data on the hmi so these.are all some of the new things that that.a lot of the machine builders and sis.are encountering when they see uh.when they when we talk to them on this.and last but not least the lack of.talent so the problem with uh with all.these things is that.you require a certain pool of or already.a certain type of software developer in.order to.kind of build build out a connectivity.that can connect to ot.and connect to the i.t side right so.it's kind of a niche market so.so for some of the system integrators.they feel that the problem.really is that they cannot find people.who are able to do this.and most of the uh most of the machine.builders and.system integrators that we talked to uh.ended up with a diy kind of connectivity.platform.so they they may have engaged a third.party to develop it or they could get a.sdk.from you know a couple of brands and.they patch it up and create.some sort of solution and and these are.some of the problems that.uh the four key problems that uh.when they decided to go with the diy.method the do it yourself method.okay so the first problem right is that.in software development right.if you choose to have a customer or.you're going to build up some in.a connectivity system this may take you.months or years in the development right.so you have to you know maybe take about.a month or so to scope up.the school of work maybe an mvp you know.if you're.into that then uh you have to.iteratively keep.keep doing a couple of pocs a couple of.development.drivers builds you know alpha bill and.so forth.and finally you do a test and then you.do a deployment so that can take you.years right.and if you if on the other hand let's.say you have a.product that is commercial off the shelf.you know you can actually download it.test it out and then you configure it.amnesty license and you're done.right so you are reducing the the go-to.market time.in terms of developing a connectivity.layer.so the next problem is that even if you.have done the diy portion you have.completed the whole thing.you know there will always be software.bugs or you know even security breaches.so you have to maintain it you have to.have a team to maintain the codes.right it's not a one-time thing um so.that's going to be another.challenge for some of our customers for.example halfway through the project the.engineer leave the company and then they.couldn't find.anybody to come in to take over and.things like that or hand over issues.where the code base would not you know.synchronize.and they were out of date or things like.that so compared to say you have a.vendor.who who provides a you know a commercial.of the shelf.solution and all you have to do is.really just to download it and.and just do an upgrade so that could.that would actually again you know.shrink down the time for you to go to.market with with a with a proper.like off-the-shelf solution out there.okay so the next challenge is actually.really on security as well.so you know being interconnected it.means that security is always a problem.for.for software developers right you have.to make sure that the the product that.you're.rolling out they they conform to certain.framework or certain best practices.so those mean that those four s system.integrators who are going with the diy.solution.actually what it means is that they have.to put in additional effort right.additional people who knows all this.stuff.to to kind of make sure that their codes.are robust enough.to withstand all the different.industries and different requirements.so that's another challenge for diy.solutions.so the goal of our tke which is the.teamwork cap y solution is to deliver.connectivity to legacy.enterprise analytics and industrial iot.systems without creating custom.code so instead of you going out to do a.diy kind of solution you know you get.sdks you write own codes and things like.that.you could you know just reach out to.capwear and and get a copy of it test it.out and if it works well.just you know just wrote it up and then.along the way you know bingham where.we'll manage it.in the same manner as we have managed.the cap server ex enterprise.where we will roll out continuous patch.and continue bug fixes and those.things like that so you can actually.just let's say let's say there's.something happening and then we you see.that in our change log that we have.fixed that you can just download it and.then just.load it up and then just patch it up so.that will really shrink down in terms of.maintenance time for connectivity.and and really that's key value of that.right so these are just a summary of.some of the key values that uh.that the tke offers i don't think i will.go too deep into this.but the key thing will be the.elimination for the need to code right.so you don't don't really code out the.full stack but rather you just configure.it.maybe true programmatically to a rest.call and things like that.at the same time we the the product.itself will also offer you the.traditional ot connectivity that you.require.for example you want to connect to a plc.and things like that you know you can.just use the tke to do it.so of the box the product itself which.is the tke is a drop in configurable.application.right so there's no really not much.custom coding or anything it's just a.program just a configuration uh.programmatically.so what um the the reason why we do it.programmatically is that it allows you.to.kind of um quickly deploy it on team.clients.right which we'll talk about later on.the next thing that we have is the.in terms of security reliability uh.because we because hardware will be.maintaining the software.we will be uh providing the best in.class security and reliability on the.product itself.right.so the tke uh in a very broad overview.is.uh what you see over here right it's out.of the box you download it you use it.you configure it and that's it.it's a headless design and the code base.that is used on.our southbound layer so if you're a.camera user you you maybe.we may have heard of the term southbound.so the driver layer is actually the same.code base.that we use on the windows version so.the windows version is not being 20 over.years we have patch.for you know continuously and and we.have a very.proven and reliable connectivity.solution so that that same.code base is being used on this product.as well right.and if your thing was customer today it.has the native integration to think.teamwork.so you can actually connect directly to.teamworks using the tke itself.and as of launch right now we have three.primary drivers so allen bradley control.logix.the siemens s7 and the modbus driver.so that's that's the area we call.southbound where we connect to machines.so so if you look at the diagram right.uh pretty much.uh these are the complete offering that.we have right now.and for the northbound which is you know.after you collect the data you want to.send.it up uh primarily we have two options.for you right now we have the opc.ua uh server and the mqtt.uh client driver so the mqtt will allow.you to publish data to you know mqtt.brokers or even.most of the cloud cloud platforms out.there and the opc ua will allow you to.connect to.some of the more industry 4.devices that are opc ua ready.so as i launched this is our.specification so so again i won't go too.much into.into this but the but what you should.know is that our current supporter os.is ubuntu and we plan to have a couple.of other.other other os along the way in terms of.support supported architecture right now.is 64b and x86.so the next one will be arm right and.these are.this is a summary of what we have.the product itself is uh following a.subscription pricing.so uh the reason why we have went with.this method is that because.in because of the security requirement.you know we recommend.customers to just subscribe and so that.you'll always be on maintenance.and and because of the way we designed.the product.it was designed to be easy to to patch.up so so the idea is that with active.subscription.and when there's a new you know new.vulnerability discovered we will roll.out a new patch and.as because you're on subscription you.don't have to worry about whether you're.on support or not support.so you just need to download it and.patch it up right and and that's good.for everybody right in the industry.so pdc is committed to provide the tools.required for securing the critical.infrastructure.right so so really you know if you are.serious about uh.security it requires you to go into this.kind of business model.so in terms of roadmap for the tke which.is just the the linux version of camera.we are at 1.1 today and the next.upcoming one will be 1.2.yep and that's the end of my.presentation.thank you steve.that was quite insightful and.informative.and i i see i i thought during your.session a lot of uh.questions came on so.we we have some power pack questions.waiting for us now okay okay.so we will have a quick round of q a's.uh.with uh our panelists for today i'll be.reading out these questions and then we.will.accordingly see who is going to answer.the questions from our panelists who are.present with us today.we have another panelist who has joined.us is manish.i'm aneesh thank you for joining today's.session.right so manish heads the.ats india division for us and many of.you may.already know manisha for his.contribution towards.the engagement with kepware the first.question that we have.today is does kepware support.pure unsolicited data access.i guess vivek you will be the best.person to answer this for us can you.unmute yourself and answer this one.yes uh it is it is unsolicited.data access is possible but we require.the more information about that things.which type of the united data access is.there.but possible to access that data from.this.to the campaign also okay.okay that's good to know uh thank you.eric so.the gentleman who is asking the question.uh.can reach out to vivek offline uh.you have bbx details or if you don't.have it we will share it at the end of.this session.so you can reach out to vivek for more.information.exchange some details that we make needs.and we can take this further.the next question is uh can cap server.pass data from device driver.directly to nifi or kafka.i guess steve this is straight in your.line of defense.yes so it's quite straightforward for.for nifi.or the hadoop or is it caldera.kafka is what they explicitly mentioned.right so it's part of the complete uh.caldera platform so for.so you have to move the data from knife.into kafka or things like that.and the way to do it there are two.methods primarily.uh one of them is opc ua there's.actually an opc ua.i think that is opc ua note or a.processor.in the nifi that you can use to connect.to to capture through the ua.ua method and the other method will be.through the.red server so you can actually issue.rest calls into cadres iot gateway.to pull the data out into into the nifi.platform and then from nifi.move it to kafka or even hadoop.thank you i hope uh that was a.satisfactory.answer uh again as i said a note.if if you have some follow-up questions.to the.justifications that our panelists are.sharing with you.you can reach out to them offline over.an email and we'll be happy to take.these discussions ahead.the next question i have is one of our.attendees is trying to answer.ask is if there are 500 tags.which needs updating every one.millisecond.what kind of hardware would i require.at the cafe server kept server end.there should not be any buffer overflow.at the ethernet port i guess.you can answer this one for us if you're.comfortable.so typically like a millisecond wise.communication.with any device with capture so.so you need first thing you need to.verify is like uh response time of that.particular device.so default like minimum time.configurable is around 10 milliseconds.in capture and the hardware specs.perspective you can go with like uh.gigabyte.uh like ethernet card and uh with like.uh 16 gb ram and uh for the requirement.mainly one tv should be enough uh if you.are not logging the data.with some capture data logger or to a.relational database.so so it is possible but 10 milliseconds.is the like.minimum scan time we can configure with.the kepler.okay thank you nilesh the next.question i have is does the cap server.becomes a us server for all the data.it extracts from plc's on va servers to.a ua client.i guess money sure if you can unmute.yourself and take this one.you'll be happy yes yes so all.uh cap server ex drivers.as well as dsr1 and what is described is.a very common application so.customer would have a device.communicating over a da.and cap server takes the data over da.and then.it communicates as a us server to a ui.client so this is a.very common application of converting.traditional.da devices over ua to a ua client.application so yes this is very well.supported and that is the standard.capability of any capsule or ex let it.be a.single driver or a manufacturing suit or.any other suit.okay well while we are with you manish.we like.you to take the next one as well how.does kept wear edge compared to cap.server.in supporting devices let's say.if the user wants to get data from.entire factory floor.to cloud with wide range of device.manufacturing.is it a good solution so i think this is.a good question and i think.a lot of customers who are on the iot or.industry for.a journey i think they would have a.similar questions.so what caps so traditional cat server.has been running on a microsoft uh.base system so you require a typical.computer system with a microsoft oas and.the.system to connect uh device to capsular.ex.so what caps server 8 does is that it.allows you to use the.low footprint linux hardware so you can.use.any low fruit print hardware and.typically in a plant you would have a.diverse asset so you can put a small.edge device.close to your assets install the capsule.age and then get data over.ua and pass it over the network and you.need maybe just.one computer system with the at the.center layer and.all the kepler data or even your age.device can directly communicate.to your cloud or any other application.so this.it's really facilitates you to optimize.your.your hardware network and the.infrastructure.requirement gives you very optimal way.where you can connect your.desperative data source aggregated at.the law.and anybody instead of running no don't.require to run.long network cables and put everywhere a.microsoft.system just put a small uh h device.running on linux or ubuntu.put a server is there get the data and.then connect to an application so yes.if if a person was asked question if you.can even share the.architecture we can help optimize the.right way of.using the capsular agent maybe a.combination.thank you manish i hope that information.was helpful to you.uh the next question i guess nirish you.can take this up.is is kept server also mqtt consumer.uh yeah so cap server basically supports.iot gateway plugin.and in iot gateway plugin uh you can.have.uh mqtt uh um like you can.subscribe as well as publish to mqtt.broker so it is possible basically.okay and staying with you i'd also like.you to take the next one.is kept server a rest server too.let me repeat it for you is kept server.a rest.server too.sorry is it is it a rest r.r e s t is cap server a rest server too.uh yes caprara has a red server.interface on the iot gateway which.i'll be doing the demonstration later on.okay so we've got that covered in the.latter half of.of this session so lady or gentlemen.we're gonna get your answers during the.course of the session.the next question is something that you.would like you to take uh steve.uh the question is how many drivers does.kept wear and support.so the age right now currently only.supports uh the allen bradley.modbus and siemens ethernet however if.let's say you have a certain.requirement please feel free to reach.out to.sala so that we we can we can know about.what.what requirement you need and because we.have an intention to add in eventually.adding all the drivers.into the edge version so if you have a.certain project that you are looking at.we if let's say it makes sense we will.actually speed up the development and.push it in for you.the next question steve again i'd like.you to take this is also.this is i guess a corollary to the.earlier question.can you send uh commands.for third-party rest servers.unfortunately uh this is not something.that we can do right now so so.so what you're really looking for is a.rest client for us to.well well is is it's kind of a mixed bag.we do have.a rest client however the rest client.was designed to post message.to a rest server so i think based on.what.i'm look i'm guessing from you is that.you may require to send.to trigger something using the rest.client so.if it is pretty basic let's say it's.something that is manageable through the.rest client in iot gateway then i would.say.yes we can do it however if let's say.it's a kind of you know.you may need to do a certain handshake.and things like that and then we need to.then pass out the uh the payload coming.in from the third party rest server then.that might not be something that is.ready today you will probably have to.code out some sort of middleware or to.do handshake between.two of the site so but we do have the.udd driver that is coming up.that might be able to solve this problem.eventually.okay thank you the next question i guess.steve you can take this as well.how vulnerable is kepware towards a.windows.os based update in present or in future.okay let me think about that question.how vulnerable is kepware.well i guess at the end of the day right.uh kevin is running on the windows.platform.so you know it's it's as secure as your.other applications in terms of you know.whatever you're installing on it.uh if there is an os level bug to be.honest there's nothing much we can do.because we're on the application level.side.so uh yes we are vulnerable if let's say.there is a certain.problem with the west however i want to.point out is that if usually for os.related.uh no major critical bugs they are.patched out pretty fast.and for cabwear on our end we we do.follow.the latest news and we pass out pretty.fast as well.uh if you have been following us there.were a couple of big.uh big big problems with with the os.related security vulnerabilities and.and clever actually there was a more.time where we offered a free upgrade.for anybody even without support.maintenance into the latest version.so that's part of our commitment to make.sure that you know even though you are.not in support.but we recognize that security is.important and we actually offer.everybody a.free one-time mass upgrade regardless of.whether you have support supplementators.so that's that's really how we we we try.to manage.the the incoming you know security.vulnerability.uh the next question again steve let's.stay with you.the next question that i have from our.audience.is just maybe one.second.[Music].the questions are really coming thick.and fast.the custom.net application.yes the customer.yeah okay yeah so can.thing works provide tag data to a.custom.net application yes you're right.okay so i assume that you're talking.about.where.yes you can have a custom donut.application connected.so there are two there are a couple of.ways to be honest the the more.traditional way would be to.you know access through opc and if you.really are going through that direction.you know as i mentioned client ace which.is our sdk is.is kind of reaching the end of life you.can evaluate other.other sdks so uh once you have the sdk.you will be able to add in opc.capability to your.dotnet application and with that you are.able to connect to capware.so that's the first method the second.method will be through the iot gateway.so instead of going through the whole.pcua sdks you can actually issue your.own.i say rest course to capri to to get the.data so i'll be demonstrating that in.the iot section.later on okay thank you.thank you steve uh vivek can you take.the next next set of questions for us.please the first question i have for you.is.how can we read internal tag from.fanuc machine.yes can we read yeah yeah actually.for the fanuc having this focus library.is that.so for that it is required it is.that particular in the memory tags or.internal tags is there.then we can read particular things into.this one of machines.so library having so many information so.that.we look into that library then we can.read that memory tags or internal tags.are there.we can implement that okay.i guess we have uh some information on.this coming up in the subsequent session.so.maybe we can elaborate during that yes.the next question uh for you is.can we log datas in the form of.table using odbc driver to sql database.for example three rows and three columns.that is nine tags usually.this based on the question is particular.for data logging.so for that data logger.plugin is available at odbc.it is for the different application.drivers.locations are there so for.based on the application based on the.question we can go for the data logger.plugin and it is possible.to log the data into the sql table.for the example is given that three over.three columns whatever the line tags are.that.it is positive okay.thank you vivid uh next one again i.request you to stay on for this one can.we restrict kepler.from writing back to the drivers.yes it is possible you can confirm.either on the read mode only you can.restrict.that to the devices that is.in the tax property.okay okay the next question again we.wait for you would be.each field consumes one time is it.is it correct um i i don't.see this as a question yes yes so it is.basically.what yeah it is basically i uh my.thought process is it is basically for.the data logging purpose.um field is nomenclature of the data.logger.or some actual table or like this so yes.correct so each field is consumed one.tag it is correct.okay uh steve the next one's for you.uh can we connect multiple interfaces.um i'm not exactly sure what what.interface we're talking about.uh maybe uh maybe he's coming in say for.can we connect to multiple cap wear you.know multiple or maybe multiple camera.interfaces yes.true opc ua uh are we talking about.maybe.multiple devices so each of the protocol.can be considered as an interface.uh yeah so so definitely uh definitely.yes.so camera is usually used for you know.interoperability to connect to.multiple interface okay.well we've answered quite a few.questions but and.the questions are still trickling in but.in the interest of time.uh the the attendees are.uh to be informed that we will be just.taking two more questions.now and then we will move on with our.subsequent sessions.we'll come back to the remaining.questions during the end of the session.the last two questions for this round is.steve again you can answer this for us.can kepwell directly connect with.a twin cat plc in future.oh we can actually connect to twin cad.right now.okay yeah we have the back off driver so.you can actually use it but you may need.to do some ads routing but.yeah we can we can definitely do it.right now okay.and the last one that we're trying to.take now.is uh presently in cap server x.we can't stop and restart a particular.channel.when some distribute happens.can it possib can it be possible to.restart a single channel.oh let me think about that i'm assuming.that you have some issues.with a single channel and then you try.to delete or make changes and you.realize that it doesn't work.so that's that's really the one of the.design element of cap where so it was.designed to be.uh what you can do is that you can.actually disconnect from runtime and.make the changes.and then when you reconnect back uh.cable will ask you if you want to update.the engine.or rather the runtime and if you choose.to do so there will be.a disconnect so i've got to warn you.that there will be a disconnect and then.it will reconnect back.so that's one way to do it uh and and.the other way to do it is to kind of use.your client to.cut off data requests to that particular.channel and then you can.actually like kind of um you know do do.things to it.then if you really want to to really.just to restart the single channel what.you can do right is that you can double.click on the device.and there will be a column no there will.be a row that says data collection.you swap it to disabled and click apply.so that will.stop the entire communication on the.driver layer and then you can re-enable.it so.so that will be in a way restarting a.single.device not channel but yeah you can you.can definitely do it on using that data.collection method.okay thank you steve uh just to.make sure that i also know something.about kepware i'll try and answer one.question for you.so the next question is will a recording.of this webinar be available yes it will.be.and i'll take that question for all of.you guys so the.the webinar recording will be available.and we'll share it with.all of you okay uh uh i see still.strictly uh.questions are trickling down or we'll.take it during the course of.the subsequent sessions we do have time.for.enough of your questions i hope we do.because that's how.it was planned we wanted this session to.be as interactive as possible.now we move on to our next set of.presentations.nilesh if you can take over the screen.please.so the the next session that we have.would be from taranji where taranjeet.will share.his experience about how their.organization adverb.is using kepware in various ways and.how are they benefiting from the power.of kepler taranjeet over to you.hello everyone.first of all i would like to.congratulate the entire team for.celebrating this campfire discovery day.going further first i would like to.introduce you give a small introduction.towards.[Music].it starts with the providing movability.of the.contents the software palettes.games and all then we help in sorting.out the.games then the picking applications and.also in terms of software we provide.wms and wcs to manage the inventory and.keeping the control of.all the drivers in the machines in the.rear.next piece.finish this so presently.the adverb is a team of 250 engineers.where we.have a close to 55 and more.engineers only into r d and we have a.good basket of customers as of now and.it's going up day by day and.this year also we are doing a very good.project for some of the.well-known companies in the india next.news.so in our basket we.[Music].from 550 to 1500 pages.[Music].we call it a mother-in-child center and.on the.left side on the car so in the right.side top we have a.pallet shuttle which handles the big.talents which you can see on the central.screen.let's say next.[Music].the conveyors i was saying that we have.a we supply a variety of conveyors.like you can see on the screen the.spiral conveyors then we have.roller conveyors and we have belt.conveyors chain conveyors.we use these applications for sorting.delivering.and even for uh removal and automatic.storage and required system.and we have a smart conveyors which can.manage the load as per the presence.and they can be controlled using various.plcs and controllers.english next like this.so when it comes to the capture.relationship.of work so generally we follow this kind.of.network architecture where.that talks to our wms which is our.software this is a warehouse management.system.which handles the inventory and then we.have our.wcs which is warehouse control system.which.handle controls the various asrs.solutions.there are emrs and other plc.devices in the very serial on the field.then.we have a gui which is purely based on.the wca software only.this devices software integrates us.to the various machines through cafe.server we use camera server for you to.copy to our shutters.as you can see on the left side and in.the bottom you can see.we connect various plc's those the.we use drivers from siemens and oman so.that talks to the cafe server and.provides.information to wcs and wms.yes can we go to the next screen.so here you can see the drivers right.now we have been using siemens and.omron drivers the driver we use for.controlling our mother child shuttle.and.[Music].control on siemens platform so siemens.becomes our primary.work which we use on cafe in the real.future.which is under our rnd projects make.sure you see a lineup.that we will be using in the very near.future.can you move to next slide so.on terms of wcs the information is.connected on the restaurant.we take the information on capture which.is managed by wcs which further.passes on the actuation information to.the wms.based on which it manages the inventory.control in the.classroom it's uh further helping.controlling the fee uh the whole.management of the.contacts in the warehouse that makes the.whole warehouse are.automatic of managed warehouse.or you can say that dark weirdos where.you can say.there isn't uh hardly any manual.intervention in the warehouse.and the whole that primarily supported.by the caffeine.which integrates from all them all the.machines robots dmr's.wcs and compliance.english next year.so right as just in the parenthesis you.can come to know that we have been using.cashflow close to now.two years a little more so we have been.receiving a various kind of advantages.in unique.music cafe obviously the first one is.integrating multiple devices.like just mentioned we have a plc.platforms controlling the.you can say conveyors then we have our.plc banks which controls the.various shuttles ams communication.and way further it also provides a.flexibility where we use.multiple drivers like in mother and.child configuration we have our mother.platform on onboard plc.and the child platform is on siemens so.surely it's easy for in case of.troubleshooting ourselves.and obviously it's supports up in uh.integrating the whole system.with our wcs and ws so it provides a.good.uh control towards ip applications.and that too obviously when it's from.any location.so uh i'd like to say that.capture has contributed a lot in our.services.thank you english.thank you that was uh quite insightful.for us.the taranti just demonstrated what a.solution provider can do with the power.of kept fair.by leveraging the various technologies.campfire has to offer.so that was quite helpful the ranjit.thank you should you have any questions.for karen.just pop them in the q and a box and we.will try to answer that.has been kind enough to agree to stay.till the end of this session so he can.get the ass questions answered for you.moving on to the section.of major drivers the village will take.us through.the various drivers that kepler has and.how we can use it.and we also have some demonstrations.from vedic militia over to you.so uh good afternoon everybody uh i am.nilesh jangling.and i am working with uh presence team.in sarla advantage.so for today's topic of kepler drivers.we will be basically uh majorly will be.going through the capture configuration.tool itself.and start with we'll go through a few.slides.which explains basically basics of.kepler driver.so uh so if you see this particular.architecture at bottom side there are.various data sources which are connected.to caprix.and at the top side there are certain.applications which are.exchanging the data from so basically.this application.or clients which are connected to.kepware.request data from cap server ex on like.explicit read write.old or subscription method and once data.is available with cap server ex.through like some necessary client.interface it is served to these clients.like.necessary client interfaces may be like.rest or any native client driver or odbc.and apart from this uh capture also.supports certain plugins.uh like uh advanced plugins.which adds more functionality to this.collected data.so so our main focus in this topic.will be on drivers uh so so we'll be.mainly focusing on.so if you see here uh drivers are how.capture ex connects to your data so.various data sources like it may be like.plc.it may be like opc server flow computers.or database applications so kepware.ex communicates with these data sources.and devices.uh using wide array of drivers there are.lot.150 plus drivers available with the.capture and.this drivers supports different kind of.like physical interfaces.it may be like ethernet or serial and.protocols such as modbus.bacnet or cip so so if you see.this is the list of drivers uh which is.supported by the capture.as i said there are almost 150 plus.drivers available with the kepware.and for this demo uh we'll be going.through uh.some of the like major drivers so.uh so if you see here in this slide.uh i have mentioned or listed down.certain major drivers.so we will go through the configuration.of this major drivers.uh name glenn bradley controllers.ethernet.so for this we have a control logix plc.controller.l72 plc connected to my laptop uh then.we will go through the opc ua client.uh for this we have ifix.running on the system which will act as.opc ua server.and we will use kepler as opc ua client.and third we will see go through modbus.ethernet.so so for modbus ethernet we have one.system on a network where i install.capture instance.which will act as a modbus uh slave.and the instance which is installed on.this laptop will act as a modbus.master so so typically most of the cases.system uh where driver will be installed.will act as a modbus master.and your the field devices with modbus.protocol will act as a slave device.so finally we will go through the.configuration of.siemens tcp ethernet so so from.like driver configuration perspective.there are three major connectivity terms.associated with that uh for channel.so channel is nothing but like uh your.path to the.device so when you configure channel in.kepware.uh you need to specify the path or.driver uh which you will be.communicating.uh with so so so that you need to select.in channel.and apart from that you need to specify.the port uh which will be.so mostly it will be like ethernet card.on your system in some cases if it is.like serial communication it may be like.serial port.uh so so and next will be like device so.in device you will be uh mainly.configuring like.um like a model you need to select.particular model then uh uh the.that will be like ip address of that.particular plc.uh and as like the informed by.steve in earlier like session this data.collection option will be there.like to enable or disable that.particular device under the channel.so that that particular device capture.will not pull to that particular.plc or device and finally.we need to create basically tags as tags.can be created using this tag property.editor.and in this property editor you can see.we need to specify the tag name as per.the.requirement and the address this address.syntax might be.uh might be different for each protocol.and each.plcs as per the specific syntax for.a specific plc vendor so so you need to.specify that address with the data type.and client access for like the read.write access to be provided to client.for that particular tag.so so now we'll move towards actual.configuration tool capture configuration.tool.so i'll just switch over to capture.configuration tool.so this is the kepware so this is the.kepler configuration tool.uh currently i configured one project uh.with listed drivers so if you see uh.like in.project connectivity we can create new.channel and in.channel first thing which we have to do.is we have to select the driver.so so first demo.i have this alignmently channel already.created.which is communicating with network l72.controller.so we'll just go through some of the.main settings available under channel.so if i go to property editor of the.channel you can see.i have selected driver called allen.bradley controllers ethernet.so as uh logics plc we have to select.this particular driver.in case of it is like slc or older plc.we can select allen bradley ethernet.protocol or.if it is like dh plus combination or df1.combination we have to select respective.driver.and then again uh there is one option.called as a diagnostic capture.so so this diagonally capture is nothing.but.when you face certain like communication.related issues or.certain like unit certain optimization.in your communication.you can just enable this diagnostic.capture to see certain statistic related.data for that particular channel.uh basically this diagnostic capture.basically takes minimal overhead.processes so it is.that you enable this only when it is.required.and as uh described earlier like this.6.9.provides this stack count also so you.get this static tag count available with.that particular.channel and then another major setting.is like.uh you need to configure basically uh.adapter so so adapter which is.communicating.your plc so in this case.i have that plc and wireless network so.i selected a wireless.adapter of my particular laptop uh.other things will be in device like.major things will be in device.properties.so after creating channel we need to.create device.so in device i selected basically the.model num.so so these are all models supported by.the.uh allen body controllers ethernet so.these are all series like controller is.five five zero zero.so so you can have like l72 processor.will come under this.particular model itself uh then i have.i have basically entered here ip address.of that plc.which is if you see here uh there is one.constant number that is port id and.then there is a cpu slot so we need to.specify the slot.so this will this id will depend on each.uh.plc driver or a ph plc vendor so so you.can just go to help and check the syntax.for the id.so for rockwell it is like ipaddress.comma cpu slot.and then you can obviously have this.data collection.enable or disable for that particular.device.uh then some of the major setting.available with.like device is like scan mode so by.default.it will respect your client specified.standard.so whatever client will have or whatever.the.scan rate is configured in the client.that will be.uh applicable for the all tags uh.available in this device so you can also.have like uh.tag based uh tax specified scandal which.is available in the tag property.you can also specify once particular.scan rate for all the data.or you can also specify so this demand.poll is mainly used in like.remote station where bandwidth or some.communication delays are there so you.can.basically client will write to one tag.available in the capture properties as a.demand tag.then only keeper will send the.information so where data is required.only on.demand basis then you can use this.demand poll to avoid.uh network uh uses or bandwidth of your.particular communication so currently we.have selected client specific candidate.and there are certain settings like.timing which are.typically available with drivers like.completion timeouts like.the connection timeout to establish the.connection.then request timeout if like there is no.response from the particular device and.declaring that device is filled so when.you get basically.at the bottom side in event logs if you.get basically certain messages.uh like uh your device is not responding.so that happens after this particular.timeouts.occurs so so and apart from that some of.the major.uh devices are like tag generation.so with certain plc's like alan bradley.siemens.uh even modbus opc uh so so.they support basically automatically tag.generation so so for that you can.specify certain settings like.whether you want to generate this.automatic tag at startup.you want to delete duplicate tags and.you need to specify here our database.setting.so this database settings are nothing.but like whether you want to import the.stack from device.or you can import this from import file.so rockwell supports basically.like exporting your program to this l5k.extension.you can also use that or you can.directly uh.from the device itself if that device is.connected to your system.uh so these are the main setting and.apart from that another thing is like.redundancy.so so if there is like uh so this is.basically a media level redundancy.plug-in.which is now part of the kepler driver.itself.and uh so so so when you purchase the.capture drivers.this media level redundant feature will.be available with that particular.driver so if you are like redundant.controller.and you want to uh configure that you.can just.configure uh two devices and just put.that second device in this secondary.path.so whenever there is like failure with.primary device.the secondary device will take care and.the client interface which is connected.to capture.will be basically connected to your.primary address only.they don't like you don't have to change.the addresses in.like your client or device or client.application.so this is very useful redundancy and uh.next part is like tag generation so as i.said i only like.automatically created the stacks from.the tag generation.option so just create the tags uh for.creating the time.being connected to runtime of the.capture and you can just click on create.tags it will automatically generate the.tags.so so for this demo purpose i have.created certain like uh.tags in the plc uh so rockwell plc uses.alliance addressing uh which is like uh.you can have a particular allies for the.tax.so we have just given a name as some of.them are.real boolean integer so so to verify the.data i can go to quick clan.so so i'll go to quick client and in.quick client you can see that.for my l72 controller this data is.currently live coming from the plc some.of them are real tags some of them are.like boolean tags uh some of them.here some of them are right table tags.string tags.so so so this is how uh you can uh.communicate with uh like allen bradley.controls plc.uh this tag automatic tag generation.feature makes.this configuration like uh very easy uh.and if you go to like uh if you want to.make tag.manually then you can also create tags.manually.uh by entering information here as well.as you can also export this data to csv.uh do the like appending and.other tags in the csv and the.configuration in cs will import it back.to reduce your like development time so.this is how allen ready.configuration is available uh next.we will go through siemens as alan.bradley and says more or less.configuration perspective it is almost.similar uh so.so so if you see like properties channel.properties of.siemens i have selected basically.siemens tcp ethernet.so this will be typically used you know.like a 7 300 uh 400 or 1200.1500 which has basically ethernet port.available in.there or you have some communication.card like cp.343 or 443 or cp2434 s7 200.so you can use this particular ethernet.card.uh and you need to select again unique.power and you need to select the port.which will be communicating to your plc.so in this case uh i don't have any plc.so we'll just go through the.configuration for.s7 400 so so so if you see here in.device properties.so there is basically a ip address which.we need to put.as id for siemens devices.most of the other settings are common.like data collection static stack scan.mode timings.only major difference here is like.communication parameter which is like.port number.so typically uh like siemens uses one.zero two port.uh for communication with like a sim.htcp.and uh if you are using like mpi to.ethernet converter or coffin converter.in that case like net link net link is.like mba to ethernet converter.so in that case you need to specify here.ambia id.uh for that particular net link uh.converter uh and apart from that.again now with siemens also automatic.tag generation is possible.so you need to specify the.like if you are using ti portal you need.to use basically one rti.portal exporter utility which is.available with the capture.setup you can just export uh select your.project file.of ti export and you can export it to.this particular extension tp.and just browse it and you will be able.to generate a.you know capture configuration and if.you are using see.step 7 in that case obviously you need.to specify here.s7p like your project file and your.program path.so this is how you can just configure.the device properties redundancy will be.again like common.uh then um like to just give you like uh.like how addresses are configured with.siemens uh.we can go through this particular like.tag list.where i have configured certain words so.typically in siemens.we have dv's typically data is moved to.data blocks.and for word there this kind of syntax.is there.for digital tags syntax is like db3 dot.dbx.so so if you want to know what syntax.we need to put for like data type.you can always browse this particular.address tab you will get the hints.or you can go to help to understand what.exact addressing type will be required.so so this is how siemens uh.configuration is available uh so so.typically these are some.like commonly used addresses with.siemens plc.uh next we'll move towards like.uh modbus so so for modbus.i have one system on network uh so i'll.just switch over to that system.so this is that system on network where.capture is running.and capture is acting as a modbus slave.so tcp driver of kepler supports master.as well as slave both modes are.supported so when you put your channel.ip address this particular card address.and your device ip address.same ip address if you put here it will.act as a.or you can also put like host id that is. this will act as a slave in that case.so i configure configure certain tags.and you can see that i have added.certain values to those stacks so these.are like currently.like acting as a modbus device or modbus.plc for me.like modbus slave device uh now i will.go to my.system uh where is running so in this.in properties obviously i have to select.again driver.uh then my card which is communicating.to that particular network.system which is again on my wireless.system.and then um i can go to the device.properties.so if you are in device properties uh.like you can find out that i have put.the ip address of that particular.system itself which is running that.kepler instance as a slave.and here in cape uh capture like.multiple device properties you have.certain options like again.it also supports the stack generation.but the stack generation is supported.only by certain programming softwares.like.concept snyder concept and pro box.so if you if you have those programming.software you can basically.uh have this import file.and then you can generate automatically.but anyway.basically tag addressing in case of.modbus is in.uh basically there is a typical syntax.so you can always export it to csv and.do the changes.so so apart from that some of the major.settings available with modbus device.properties are like.this data access uh these are related to.modbus protocol like.if certain devices if they support zero.based addressing.or zero based bit addressing you can.enable.uh same modbus this is basically there.are function codes like.6 and 16 for single uh register right 5.and 15 for.single coil rights so if those are there.you can basically enable these two.things if your device supports that.and obviously from data encoding for.perspective.you can have like uh certain modicon bit.order or modbus.so this will have your if you are like.communicating with particular device and.your data.value or value of that particular tag is.not proper.you can just try out this particular.encoding settings.but by default most of the devices.should work with this.settings and apart from that again.like uh yeah.so that's all from modbus side uh so so.if you see here.after creating device um you can create.basically tags.so typically in modbus there are four.types of addresses.one is like input status which starts.from basically one.which is like digital input then coil.status starts from zero.uh then starts from four.and input resistor starts from three so.so you can have basically this kind of.addresses.and if i go to quick client you can see.here.uh if i go to my particular modbus.device.it is just replicating whatever tags uh.values are available in my modbus layer.device uh.so so i can even if it is like status i.can even write.uh the value that particular device from.kappa client itself so if i made this.digital output to one.and if i go to my slave device my.particular tag is also one.so so this is how a modbus communication.or configuration will be available with.kepler.and as these addresses are in particular.syntax you can always export it to csv.and do the changes and import it back so.so this is how modbus is there then.we'll move towards like.next configuration that is opc ua.so again in opc ua also.um you need to configure basically.so first of all i'm using this ifix.scada as opc ui server.so so so in this is the interface for.ifix scada.where we need to basically enable the.opc ua configuration.so i have enabled this opc us server at.ifix level.uh and other like properties related to.opc configuration so if i go here in.kepler.in kepler i need to basically while.creating the channel.instead of now obviously you need to.select the driver but instead of.selecting like.network adapter you need to specify here.endpoint.so endpoint is nothing but like url so.basically opc ua server.and client communication happens through.this.url so you need to specify here url.uh so which is available from your opc.ui server.then you can specify here security.policies and message mode.so these are related to like if you want.uh secured communication you can select.basically this.uh basic 256 sha-256 and with.message mode as sign and encrypt so that.trust your.client communication as well as exchange.the certificate between us server and ui.client.so this will happen automatically uh.from opc ua server uh interface as well.as a ui client interface.so you can enable this and obviously uh.if at us server right if your like uh.anonymous login is.then you need to specify here username.and password of your opc ui server.settings or configuration so i put here.ui server.username password as well as.at my server end i also basically.trusted the client this okay.client when i try to connect for first.time it will pop.up this kind of window and uh you have.to trust this particular client.similarly the case with opc ua.uh server random um like kappa.configuration also.so you need to basically specify that.and.then uh you need to go to device.there are really less setting because.most of the settings are available in.channel.in device you need to specify basically.uh.the subscription like how your uh.like client driver will uh publish uh.your.like data as well as how the.subscription will happen.so subscription can be either exception.based or poll based.option is like whenever there is a data.change uh.it will be like publish and poll will.have like.on poll basis particular interval basis.and there are other settings like.interval uh so sampling interval is how.a capture will basically uh interact or.capture will pull to that u.s server.so this should be always like uh.half of your like publishing interval so.publishing interval is one second.and my sampling interval is like uh half.of.like 500 millisecond so so every 500.millisecond i am getting the data at.kepler level and from capture level i am.publishing it at one second.so so again it is very easy with.ua you can directly browse the tags you.can select a particular.like tags so this hierarchy will depend.on your.u.s server like for analog input uh.digital input.these are all tags available from ifix.so i selected this tags.and i configured a few tags already so.you can see here addressing is like.this is the namespace too so this.address will be automatically generated.uh so this is like namespace and the.data type.like this addressing uh syntax or data.type that is string.and with your respective tag name and if.i.go to my quick client and just.verify the tags you can see that.values are coming from ifix and if i go.to my ifix screen.so these are all the values which are.available with the ifix.and these are all values uh same values.we are getting from.ifix like this batch id uh then.certain like in inlet temperature or the.saturn.use so all these data is coming from.ifix.so so this is how basically opc ua.configuration can be done.uh in capture so so.so i think uh we have covered like.the majority of driver obviously there.are a lot of like around 150 plus.drivers available with kepware always go.to the driver health.and uh see the exact configuration but.conceptually.the configuration will be similar like.channel device and tags.so only thing like addressing syntax or.maybe your.device id syntax will be different so.this is how you can configure the.drivers.uh in the kepware.i think that's all from my side.i think we can move towards our next.topic.so so what do you uh steal.hello let me just share my screen right.now.right let me just move this.away okay.all right so uh let me just turn on my.video as well.okay.hello everyone so welcome back so uh.i guess this will be my section which we.will talk a little bit on the.iot gateway right so so the key products.of the iot gateway as well as the data.logger.i see that there's a lot of questions.coming in from.for the data logger so i try to i try to.answer some of them along the way you.know but feel free to you know stay to.the last part and really ask us 30.um so for the the iot gateway uh.in order to be for us to go into that uh.we'll just give you a brief background.of iot.so it is a term first coin in 2011 by.german government to describe a.manufacturing digitization project.so so the key key thing is right for iot.right is to really just the convergence.of the physical and digital systems in.industrial manufacturing.so um with the convergence of the.technologies right uh what it does is.that it allows.emergence of new service and business.models provided by smart manufacturing.uh if you're interested know feel free.to follow the link from pdc to read more.about.voice industry 4.0.now what does that mean to cap wear um.really.the the thing the key thing about the.whole iot wave that he does in ot site.really is about data.right the data is actually being.produced by all these things which are.typically your industrial asset.so it could be a talk to plcs it could.be ipc.you know it could be a it could be a ups.and things like that so all these things.generate data.right so traditionally we use the data.to present some sort of hmi.for the operators to monitor the.machines and.and and the data is all displayed on the.panel itself.right so you know if you have been to a.machine you can see those like leds with.the traffic light leds i know you've.seen it green yellow red.things like that so those are all data.all generating data.and really the the whole idea is that to.use that same data to provide.uh new capabilities by leveraging cloud.services.or or you know emerging technologies.like ai or machine learning but.you know all those stuff and and really.it's all about moving the data for.from the cadburys perspective.so uh tradition traditionally right uh.the.the factory floor we follow the isa 95.or some sort of tiered or layered.uh data data movement so typically the.plcs generate the data.you know you program your plc so the.logics the pld loops.set points things like that and then.they will.and some of the data will then flow to.the hdmi right so it's post-processed.it's not all the data.uh additionally after that the data is.then being passed on to say an.mes system right and then it can go to.the erp and finally you know to a big.dashboard where your.your boss is looking at them you know.only a few kpi.so typically that's that's really what.the ot you know what our experience is.from the ot side of things.uh with the whole iot wave we have now.cloud services that requires the.raw data to be published to them.directly.so with that in mind uh this is actually.an.architecture that we are seeing uh quite.quite common across the board.so you you typically separate the.the architecture into two layers the.edge layer and the cloud layer.so the cloud layer it could be a.computer systems that is.you know in in a central hq or it could.be in.even on-prem right internal cloud but.but pretty much what it means is that.you will.when you see these services there are.there are a bunch of services that you.use.right that can be hosted or it could be.on-prem then.uh for the edge right so typically those.are like on our shop floor area where we.have the.machines and things like that and.they're connected to through hdmi.so in order to to kind of deliver the.iot applications or really just to pass.data to that to the.to these technologies uh what we are.really talking about is.the use of i.t centric protocols uh.to pass that data over right so if you.think about it most of the data.are already out there right it could be.connected through a software like.capware you know or it could be other.software.so the data is there and as long as that.middleware or that software has it.capabilities right id.id centric capabilities you can actually.send the data the same data that is.being drawn on the.on the dashboards to the uh to the.these cloud systems directly as well.so that really is kind of the premise of.where the iot gateway is coming from.right so out of the box uh the iot.gateway today uh comes with the rest.cost so rest.so we have a rest client and a rest.server so if you recall someone just.actually just talked about like how do.we send commands.or through the rest calls so that would.be talking about a rest client.you know with a certain kind of method.that we talked about however our rest.client really was designed to.push data out to a rest server and the.reservoir will kind of take it.and do something else so i'll.demonstrate later uh the next thing that.we have is mqtt.so i think that was a question about uh.kepler as a mqtt consumer.so yes we do have the mqtt client agent.the mqtt client agent in iot gateway was.designed to publish data.so it's meant to send out data as well.as write.if you want to consume data we actually.have a mqtt client driver.to take in the data from from an mqtt.broker.right then last but not least uh common.to both these agents.uh the payload format the format that we.use and recognize is json.right and that would be how the iot.gateway is.so for those who are not familiar with.json json refers to javascript object.notation.so if you're a programmer i think this.is pretty straightforward you know it's.a key value pair operation with a bunch.of curly bracket.but for those who are not familiar uh.pretty much the.the um the the.json will look like this in this picture.over here.so it looks like this curly bracket with.key value pass and what we have here in.capware is that we give you the ability.to kind of.modify and define a certain template to.kind of.move the way to form the payload that.you won't be sending out or receiving.and in terms of restful interface uh.what it really means is the.representational state transfer.is a client server based architecture so.the client pushes out a request and a.response come back to you from the.server.and it's very common to leverage the.http http protocol.right or the ssl version https.and the the rest call itself in itself.is stateless it's not like your tcp.connection where it's connection.uh connection oriented you know where.that when you form a socket a three-way.shape and then we know.whether the connection is breaking or is.it still active for http once you once.you send it out you know you just.let it go and then you will come back.with hopefully the server responds back.to you.right.so that that would be the http right hd.protocol.and for the mqtt portion uh basically.it's the message queue telemetry.transport.it is a lightweight protocol that can be.used to transfer data in a pub sub.broker manner.right so typically right you will have.your.uh data or sensors having the data.uh creating the data and what they will.do is that they will send out to a.broker.which you have to deploy so it's not.right it has to be a you have to deploy.your own broker.and that broker will then receive the.data and.and put it at some sort of topic and.whoever is subscribed.to that same topic will receive the data.so you can see that the data point will.then go from.here it goes here and then it spreads.out to the anyone who is subscribed to.that same topic as well.then on top of that for the mqtt uh.protocol.there's a concept of qos inside so it.can it affects the.uh it affects the reliability of the.message delivery.and at the bottom of it the transport.layer is actually tcp slash ip.so going back to the diagram that we.talked about today on the h side you.could be connected with capware.and with the iot gateway what it does is.that it allows you.to send the data out to the cloud or it.could be.sending out to a local on-prem agent.which is doing further processing of the.raw data and then send it back to the.cloud.so post-processed data or it could be.just you know wholesale dumping of data.to the cloud directly.so if you're interested the iot gateway.the.we have a couple of resources for you.the iot gateway demo video is.uh over there and there we have a made.easy guide so the main easy guy is.a it's a great guide to get you started.because it allows you to create a rest.server.uh you know in a couple of clicks and if.you are interested we have the manual.and the webinar series as well.all right so the next one will be data.logger but before i go into that i think.i will do the demonstration for the iot.gateway.okay so if you look i assume that you.guys can see my screen.if you are not seeing the screen though.let me let me know just type in the chat.box.uh what i have here is a system.that is connected uh a cable that is.connected to.a bunch of plcs so you can see that we.have a mitsubishi iqra series over here.we have automation direct dl05 and i.have a raspberry pi sensor.right so in i think to build on what.nilesh has talked about.uh once you know how to use capability.pretty much the creation and.configuration of text are.pretty similar right so if you launch.the quick client.you can actually see that we are reading.data from from this version.all right you gotta bear with me because.my vm is a little bit slow.so you can see that i have the the.sensor data over here.the mitsubishi data over here and the.dl05.and as of 6.9 remember i'll talk about.the other score system.if you look at that the underscore.system text there is now a active tag.count.right and just maximize it so there's so.there's like seven texts being read.right now.and if you go over to the device layer.you should be able to see the steady.text created.so for those who are not familiar each.of the text created over here are the.steady tags.right right so this is a very typical.connectivity layer where we connect from.the ot.environment right so maybe now you have.to do iot.right so the first one that that will be.i will demonstrate would be the red.server right so in order to do a rest.server it's very straightforward just.need to right click.new agent and choose the rest server.right now you can call it whatever you.want.press for example.right and then you can bind it to a.certain nic card and pretty much you.leave the configuration as.shown so when you do that right what.what it actually allows you to do is to.kind of.uh perform rest calls to it so let me.just enable this one.so you can see that it uses the jre.runtime.and and once you bind it correctly right.you will be able to.click on the url provider and that will.bring up the documentation for the.iot gateway.and and with the iot gateway what it.does is that it allows you to do program.programmatic calls to it.let's give you some time.and with that right what you can do is.that after the rest server is being uh.created.you can actually use uh you know like uh.program uh javascripts and stuff like.that to actually create.your own codes to issue rest calls to.the rest server.so that's pretty much what we have done.here right if you wanna i think i.believe this can be sent out through.uh sala later on so we just need to read.the source code.and we have a bunch of scripts for you.to test out.and once you do that right all you have.to do is ready to just hit the.ip address of the rest server which is.this.and you can see that we cannot we are.not connected and there's zero text.right now.right that's because there's nothing.over here so what we are going to do now.is to kind of just create and add in the.text that we have.so what i'm going to do is i'm going to.click right click and new iot items.and we can choose whatever we want so we.let's just put the sensors.data inside and you can choose whether.you want to do a scan rate or an.explicit read so i'm going to just do a.scan rate.so what scan rate does is that the rest.server will then scan the text created.at the designated rate so every one.second you will look for data.so now if i try to connect again you can.see that now it's being updated with 15.text which is pretty much all of these.guys.and if you if you just click the display.text you can actually read the text.and you can see all the values over here.right and this text right again just to.share just to re.make sure everybody's on the same page.is the very same tag that we have and.use it for.typical ot application so it's exactly.the same.so that's the first use of the iot.gateway you know you can use.as a developer you could be issuing rest.calls and then once you have the rest.call in place.you can then develop your own uh ui.ui or any programs to kind of read with.it.so the next thing that i want to.demonstrate would be a use of the iot.gateway.into uh telegram like for those who are.familiar with telegram.you know it's like a it's a whatsapp.kind of thing and then there's a very.well documented api for you to try out.so so what i'm going to do now is that.you can see that my i pretty much use a.rest client.and then i post it to the api right and.then i.remember the uh the json payload so we.can actually define it in a certain.syntax.so what i'm going to do now is i'm going.to just add in the.i'm going to enable the rest client that.sends it to the.telegram api and from there you will.actually.see that it will actually give you.certain information so i have two texts.right now.and what i'm doing is that i'm making.use of the system tag underscore system.error tag to determine if the device.itself is in a.erroneous state right i can also then.send in data.if i want to so you can see that i can.enable data and then i could add in.some text maybe all the text.and then what it does is that you will.then take all the data and send it out.again.through telegram see that so it's again.it's the exact same text so so in just a.few clicks you see that we can use the.leverage the iot gateway maybe to.develop a custom web page.to you know show values you can also use.it to.do some sort of simple notification.right to kind of push out data into.uh into telegram for example and and the.next thing that we can do right is.to use the iot gateway to send it to say.influx db so for those who uh.who are using doing things with influx.right you have to use the rest call to.kind of push it in.so one if you look at my screen on the.left right we we can enable the.again the the rest client.and then what we can do is that we then.add in the text.so again use the exact same text.let me just stop the telegram because.he's.spamming me right so you can see that i.add the influx stuff in and and if i now.do a select statement.you can see the the data is all flowing.into the influx db right now.right it looks a bit ugly because my my.screen is not wide enough but.yeah so that's to influx db.uh and the last one that i can show you.would be.say you are sending to another another.software like splunk for example.so you can actually use the iot gateway.to do it as well.so i've already added the text but you.know it's going to be the same steps.and pretty much if you do a search on it.for those who are using splunk today.there we go so you can see all the data.into another big data platform.right so so really the use of iot.gateway is pretty.pretty flexible what it really does is.that it.it speaks in the same language as most.of the it software out there.in the market so it allows you to do.lots of you know interesting stuff.uh i guess i can do one more which is.the mqtt agent.so the mqtt one will be quite.straightforward as well.so i have a mqtt broker connected on my.pc right now.so i'm going to publish the data into.the iot gateway.so you know pretty straightforward again.a few clicks and then i'm going to just.add in the text that i want to.expose up through mqtt.there we go and with that if i use.another mqtt decline.i can actually subscribe to the same.topic and see the data.give it some time because it's a bit.slow.thank you.let me just disable this because my.phone is rigging.okay and.it's still loading so let me give you.some time but.but you know pretty much the these are.some of the things that we can do with.the iot gateway.and for those who are sending to the.cloud you know we have connectivity.guides to.from iot to to azure as well as.uh from the iot to amazon if you want to.so through the iot hub and then send it.out.uh to the to the amazon platform.so on top of that there's also a green.grass ai iot green grass.which is kind of like a h side i think.so you can actually.you know do that as well so it's all.completely documented in the.on the on the web.[Music].and.i think it's on the right window panel.ah yes.so it's actually out so this will be the.last thing that i will show so pretty.much i will connect to the.to the broker right a local broker so.it's connecting.and if i subscribe to the same topic.or rather i'll just subscribe to all the.topics.you should be able to see the the iot no.the mqtt messages that has been.published and there we go.to the topic iot gateway and these are.all the.all the tech and data.yeah so that's pretty much uh the iot.gateway at this point of time.right so later if you've got questions.uh i guess i will continue to.i will talk i can take them later on uh.so for now i will just move on to a.little bit.just bearish me it's a data logger so.for the data logger it's really used for.data logging.right so with the iot gateway you're.able to send data to different.cloud platform and things like that with.the data logger you can use the same.data.and throw it to a tv right so the data.logger allows you to.put data into any odbc compliant.database.right some of the features include uh.automatic tag.table creation as well as the ability to.append data to an existing table.so what it means is that if you have a.table that you have created.and you want to use um catware to map.data into it you can actually use.you can actually do that in that uh the.next thing that we have right would be.the store and forward capabilities.so the stock and four capabilities.allows you to.kind of act as a local buffer if the.connection between capware and the.database is down so that's the store and.forward feature.so i think there were some questions on.whether there is a limit on number of.texts that we can lock.so the the the response for mine for me.is that we don't have a hard coded limit.however you need to be aware of um how.many what is the limitation of the.insert command used.to uh throw the data into the respective.database.so in terms of logging right when we.lock it we need to have a way to.define when to lock it so those are.considered as triggers.so we can either do a static logging.which means that we give it a certain.interval time.for example on the screen is 500.milliseconds we will lock the data every.500 milliseconds.or we are looking at time based perhaps.you are logging for.based on shift work maybe every day.between 8 o'clock to 5 pm you want the.data.and after that you don't need the data.so that would be time based logging.and last but not least we have condition.based uh.kind of logging so you can actually use.a couple of texts right to trigger the.logging.so if so if you put into context you can.actually do like a.hmi or things like that you can actually.write some sort of logic to trigger the.logging.for example you may want to know whether.when the machine.is having a certain fault status there's.a certain parameter you want to lock.you can actually use the condition based.trigger to actually do that.right so going back to the architecture.just now so you can see that we actually.just now use the iot gateway to connect.to a bunch of web page.we can send it to maybe a big data.platform or even.a unstructured db like in flux and.things like that.and and what we really do is that you.can actually also do.you can also add in the data logger.for on-prem logging because certain.applications that we have encountered.also the architecture right they require.you to some of the customers are.concerned say between the connection.of the cloud and cap server goes down.and how are they going to.how are they going to you know recover.the data so while the stock and forward.actually performs that performs that but.some of the customers prefer to have.on-prem backup so that's where people.will.customers will actually use the data.logger to do that as well.and and if you look at this screen right.now this will be the how it looks like.in the postgres.sql right postgres sql so you we're.using pg i mean to look at it.and these are some of the useful links.that you can take a look at so we have.the data logger made easy which allows.you to quickly.kind of configure the data logger uh if.you're keen.we also have a great video done by my.colleague.who writes you through the entire.process.in a video form so you can follow them.and go along the the guides to kind of.do it.so as part of my last last demo i'm.going to start doing the data logging.so you know i have all these things.connected fine now i want to do a data.logging.so in order to do that right if you look.at the data logger.all you have to do is just do a right.click new group.and over here under the dsn.right click on this three button and.typically you will need to configure.your odbc driver under the system dsn.right so if you click add then you can.choose like whatever.whichever odbc driver you are using for.your database.so in this particular instance i'm using.the sql server.right a sql server and and pretty much.that's it.so once you do that you choose the.correct.correct dsm that you have defined right.just click ok on it.i'm sorry my vmware is very slow today.right just click it and then what you.can do is that you type in your.database username and password.so i have one that's this.all right so once you do that just click.ok.oops table okay the table right you need.to.either create a table remember or you.can let catwalk create a table and.and do it for you so i'm going to just.call this label ats.oh no let's just call it sala.click ok so you can see that once the.log group is created.you can then start to add the items so.i'm going to just add some items.so let's just use the same sensor data.in.and that's it so the next last thing.that you probably want to do is just to.enable it.and when you've done the enabling what.will happen is that you will you will.see that.the create table command is created and.the log group is.connected and starting to log so the.next thing that you all you have to do.now is really just to go into database.and just validate that the data.is really inside so i'm using the uh.sql management studio to kind of look at.it so you can see there's a table now.called sala.and if i select the top 1000 rows.right you can see all the data going in.right now.right so that's really all we have for.data logger the straightforward product.that you can.leverage to throw data into database.oops.i think uh vivek will be running you.through the advanced text.okay thank you steve i was.very insightful now we move on to the.advanced tax section.where the wake will take us through the.proceedings.vivek either yes yes thank you vivek.yeah thanks so uh good afternoons and.uh the main topics for this.uh campaign for the one of the plugins.that is for the advanced type.and one another topic it is for the.this is the same for the plugin for the.snmp plugin this time.so advanced tag is basically the thing.is one of the plugins.it can be some mathematical calculations.some of the tags are there.so dilash can you.move on to the next slide.actually the advanced tag is very useful.to have.some of the calculations some of the.linking or some of the logical and.mathematical functions if.there is some that is not possible in.the scada or something like this you can.able to do that all this possibility and.with the help of this advanced time.so advanced.so can you move the next slide please.village.so the first link tag so it is a very.useful.and very popular use case of this links.tag.so this link tag is basically the uh.transfer the.data between the two existing tags in.the server.for example suppose the output of some.of the allen bradley plc stack can be.used as the input of the modbus.registrants.so data can be linked with the trigger.we can use some triggers or whenever the.data value is change.or some set for the interval so as you.uh says like that some plc is having.some different protocols and the plc has.to link that tag to map that tag.and we can transfer this stack either.from read or write more whatever you can.paste on this application it can be.configured.to occur always form or the certain.condition you can have some.scheduled trigger is also there or some.event you can use that particular for.the event.and then to map that tag particular.thing for example if you use some.plc beat for that particular to trigger.that particular tax.link tag can be also used in many.different applications.suppose for example like as the trigger.the cooling process.if you want to trigger the cooling.process if the device temperature.is goes high goes too high and link this.data to chiller system.suppose if temperature it goes high and.you start the chilling systems.that that time you can use this lymph to.transfer this stack to the chilling.system and.on that particular thing or you can the.second use case is also that for the.link.the recipe data from the sql database to.this plc.when the recipes changes so so many use.cases require with the help of.that so the link tag is basically uh.mapping that particular two devices tags.so this is the fundamentally it is.called the.link tag to have protocol linking or.something like device linking.type so can you move to next slide.english.so in the general terms why the linking.is required.uh the particular as as in general terms.so.any opc server and another opc server.you can not.able to communicate both servers because.it is the.client server architectures so with the.help of this.link tag we can use this particular.application in the same way some device.have a different protocols and some.devices are different protocol system.so for that you cannot directly.communicate with this plc so with the.help of this.advanced tech plugin or the link tag or.something like this for the linking.you transfer this one device plcs or one.device is having some protocols to.transfer that to the different devices.so this is basically why we use the.linking.now normally for this uh.the same discussed with the system like.for the mapping of this directs or.mapping of this.so the types of the opc solutions for.that particular things are the total.three type of the solution is that one.is the opc server aggregator.second is the opc server bridge and the.third one is the opc server.bridging is that so particularly.all these three solutions ultimate goal.is to.have the data can transfer to.the opc server multiple opc server into.the central locations or something like.sm.because the server-to-server.communications are not possible.because it is the client's architecture.and then we can use the.these three solution to.uh compensate that particular.application.can you move the next slides.actually the two uh solutions.for the opc server bridge so can be.possible with the help of the two.solutions one is the link master so link.masters the nag.it is the cap server product is there so.in detail discussion with the next.session about the link master in the.similar manner.with the help of the advanced tech.solution we can use the.opc server what is the uanda servers and.advanced type plugin.map that particular opc bridge is there.opens your bridge is that you can.server to server bridge is there and.with the help of this bridges we can.collect the data from the.to opc server and either we use advanced.type to link that tag.or you can have some mathematical.calculation if required.so next i please english.yes here the thing is like that uh.opc server aggregators is there so in.the similar manner there's a two options.are required for that.link master is also that so here the.thing is like that the different opc.servers.are available in the software.so we collect the help of this.advanced stack as well as some something.like.with the help of the opc ua client.drivers we can collect all the server.data.into opc ua client and advanced tech.with the help of the advanced tech you.map that particular tags.you can read and write from this any opc.server to the any opc server data.and it is in the real manner with use.that plugin for that particular things.again the same thing and same phenomena.is also possible with the help of the.link master.so in the link master having a different.opc server is incorporated in different.plc's.so with the help of the link master we.can collect the data from the opc server.and either we can float it into the opc.client or something to for monitoring.purpose or link zero link one link to.like this this is the time.next slide please launch.and the third solutions it is the.basically within that server so this is.the very popular.things and very use case is available in.the.uh nowadays is like that the routing the.data between two plc's because the plc.having.one plc having a different protocols and.another plc different protocols are.there.so with the help of the opc server.within that.server bridging with the help of this.icon stack.we can mapping that particular thing one.read the data from one plc.and write it into the another plc so.this is opc server opc server within the.server bridging is there with the help.of the advanced step this solution is.possible.so next side please.here so now basic thing is like that for.the link.linking tag as well as link master so.link master we can more discuss about on.the next session.but here why it is incorporated here is.only for.some differentiation between the link.masters and link tags are there.the link master that is communication.must go.outside the server so within that server.it is not possible we require one server.dedicated for the link master here all.the communication.happening within that server only in the.link.that is for the advanced type purpose in.the link master.that is built in opc da functionality is.there so there is no.need for you can just drag and drop that.server link.and connection is with easy here the.thing is like that opc client driver is.required.and then you use the advanced tag so.this is the second.uh something like differentiations are.there.then in the link master there is no.mathematical logical functionality is.that.here that is the advanced tag that all.mathematical and logical functionalities.available that is the additional.benefits for the.linking tags advanced type particular.for the linking.next site please.now the second for the advanced type the.second tag is the.derived tag so derive basically the.derive is some.type of the mathematical and logical.operation if requires.or something like uh some calculations.are there.or some row value is coming from this.cap server and we have some calculations.on the mathematical calculation.logical operations using the existing.tag in the server.equal to greater than less and something.like that.so april expression is can be created.using the value of the quality of the.system you can use.whatever the tag is required you can use.the value either the quality of that.system tags or you can have some.uh some device tag is also you can pair.that particular things.and calculated that into the to.incorporate the logical operator in.in same way so so.the derived tag you can either it is one.type of the calculation type or.mathematical calculation suppose for.example.if you use some temperature is coming.either particularly in the fahrenheit.and you can monitor that thing.into the celsius so you can use the.substraction for the mathematical and.use this a very simple.so why this is used easier because in.the.ultimate goal to monitoring on this side.or something like on the client side.suppose this functionality is not.available.so you use this derived tag and monitor.that tag into the.client application same way some.mathematical logical operation is.supported.by this derived text also.so next slide please nilish.the complex style is also the very.useful so.here the complex tag is used to unify.the several tags you can combine.the several text into the one complex in.xml structure.so that is represent as a single output.tag of the string.data types so here the examples like.that.some string time is also there date and.booleans.double and float is available.all these tags are there so the.combination of this.all these stacks you can have some.bulk amount of this data so it is very.helpful.if you would like to transfer the bulk.amount to data only in.one tag and send it the data to the.transaction you can transfer this to.this for example.suppose the populated the form with the.string data in one operation.so it is the multiple tags of.a combination of the multiple tags and.text type.any text types is that either is double.either string.or it is in the date format or in the.float.format whatever the formats are there to.combine these stacks.into the single form the separate tags.in the server can be designed as to.eliminate.uh the elements of this complex study so.this is basically the examples how you.can.use that particular complex text.next slide please image.now this is minimum and maximum tax is.also uh the same thing as the whatever.the tag value you define and you can.calculate.what is my minimum value of that type.and what is the main maximum value of.that during the trigger interval.[Music].so that is possible with the help of the.minimum and maximum time.and using this tag we can do the.following like that.for the analysis purpose it is very.helpful.because the minimum and maximum part.size of the production line.to ensure that the product are within.the acceptable tolerance.so either you can use the minimum or the.maximum.tags and you use that particular.tags into the analysis purpose and use.these tags either for monitoring that my.the value of this tax minimum is this.and maximum this for that particular.interval.so you also define the interval with the.help of the trigger time.conditions.next slide please village.here the average tag is also come under.the.advanced text plugin so average tag is.used to calculate the.average values to the selected type.during the.trigger tag on the interval.so uh if you can calculate the average.of.whatever the values are continuously.changes in that particular scan rate or.particular temperature which averages.that so based on this average you can.some analysis in the further is required.so it is very useful particular for the.advanced tax plugins.it is the average time using this tag.we can do the following find the average.value of the selected over the day.or the several days uh.interval to create the timing benchmark.so it is for analysis purpose it can be.used.or you can have some type of uh the is.to.something like that tag is to be used.for.uh either you can use interval for the.day or the several days.something like that you add that trigger.and use this average tag for further.analysis purpose.next slide please.this cumulative oracle cumulative tax uh.it is also the.use useful for the sum of the different.applications.so this is this tag is enables you to.determine the difference between the.current value and the previous value.suppose this tag suppose whatever the.value is based on the scan time whatever.the current values are there.and the next value next change is what.is this.so you can difference that particular.things and.monitor that values accordingly suppose.this tag is defined as.oracle is available from opc client.application for examples like.here the cumulative value of the counter.suppose 0 to 100 counters are there and.we can.calculate it particular if you use this.counter as a cumulative type so here the.samples like that.in 10 10.1 10.2 and 10.3 the values of.the samples is 5 45 95 and 4 is.available here.okay now the thing is like that if we.use this tag.as a cumulative tag now the current.value is the 5 then.next value is the 45 then 5 minus 45 is.there.again this value it is the current value.as well as minus this value.so this is basically the current value.of.that particular thing so current value.minus.it is difference between the current.value and the previous value.basically it is the oracle cumulative.time sometime.so it is a different use case for this.next next slide please.now the second uh plugins available in.the kepler.product our plugin is therefore the snmp.so basically uh what is snmp.so snmp as you know or something like it.is this.protocol one is the simple network.management protocol.nowadays is very useful particular of.the.networking or network management.system perspective so if you measure the.network healthiness.or the switch healthiness whatever the.device on the network healthiness.is require this snmp because.if all the devices are snmp enabled.devices available.in the market so with the help of this.snmp agent plugin we.can access the whatever the automation.devices are there in the.soft floor we can collect.and merge this data or we can collect.that all these.data automation devices on the i.t.administrator level.so snmp is the simple network management.protocol.and open and widely i don't adopt the.standards to connecting the network.devices and devices like.available for ups is also available.alarms and.network switches is this so this network.series and manage switches is there.now this snmp's enables the network.administrator to manage the network.performance.find and solve the network problems and.plan for the network group.so this is basically the uh.features of that snmp this snmp is the.part of the tcp shoot.and it is maintained by the ietf that is.for the internet engineering task force.this is the background of the snmp step.how it is used how it is can be.applicable or how we can snmp agent.work in campfire in the next slides can.you move the next slide village.so in the campfire the snmp agent plugin.is enabled the most of the network.management system.to communicate with the automation.device.and automation systems suppose it.access the automation systems and device.with the help of this.snmp agent plugin monitor the network.attached devices for the uh for.condition.and avoid and remit failure of the.internal process and fix the.unexpected external event.so how we how we can use that.particular things or where we can use.that thing.so here the if i t or the network.management system administered is wants.to.see the more detail about the data of.the devices.in automation perspective although that.device is.not natively snmp with the help of snmp.agent.you can use or you can collect this data.from the devices for example suppose.alan bradley.plc is on the plant flow and.network management wants to read its.timestamp registers.then this snmp agent plugin is very.useful.can you move the next line for the.examples perspective.yes so this is the one of the examples.that.the giving the id access to this plc and.device health so.here without snmp or something like this.in the first one.only you use the pc health or something.like network switch health.you can uh see like that without snmp.agent and with the snmp agent.network management system also.we map this to the plc's health.measured in the network management.system.so here right because the most of the.industry automation device and system do.not support the information technology.standards.of snmp so there are limited means to.identify this device and the system.within the network management system.application so that is why the snmp.agent is required to measure the.all these automation devices into the.monitoring purpose or network.healthiness purpose.can you move the next slide please.so again this is the.snmp agent features available.is first is the provide the plant.data to the network management system.via mibs.so mib is basically the management.information base.it is the definition file of all the.switches network switches is there.so right now is available in market that.is manage switch management having some.of the memories.are there having some mibs it is the.private and public mibs.is there so this wire might be about the.device object tax.and it is the trap that is unsolicited.communications.information for uh.the devices second features is the.gather the information.from any of the protocols whatever the.protocol that we have discussed.previously.so either cements well and badly.whatever the device you can map.this with the agent and measure the.network analysis or to merge these into.the network.uh analysis purpose and last it is the.leverage of the opc communication to the.cap server units.so these are the basic features.available for the.uh snmp agent.plugins in the capture so.uh that's all from the buy side.so prejud.go into the steam.thank you.hi everybody it's me again so now i'm.going to talk about the.last section of the day i'm going to.talk about the link master and.redundancy master so.uh let me start with the link master so.what what is the link master.the link master is actually one of the.few products that is both an opc.client and opc server i think as vivec.have talked about in the earlier.sections you can see that the functions.are pretty similar to.the tech link function in advanced tech.so it's kind of rather similar and.really the link master is kind of a.subset of it in in a way.the primary purpose of the link master.is really to just bridge.the different opc servers and aggregate.them into one.as viva has mentioned because of the.client server architecture.the server cannot talk to a server so.you need to have some sort of way to if.you want to pass the data from server to.server.you need to kind of have a software that.acts as a client to both.side and pass data across you know you.know in a fast manner.so that that really is some of the.things that the link master can do.right so the most important thing about.the link master is that it's based on.opcda.so for you to connect to any remote.opcda server you got to do your dcom.so that's one key considerations that.you have to deal with if you are.looking to do the link master.so so the link master the first.application is to act as an opc bridge.which is kind of sending the data from.server to server.so in this diagram uh typically what you.will see is that you will define one of.the server as an input.and the data will flow in through the.link master.and goes out to the second link second.server so that's.pretty much what we'll do so you can see.that in link master the concept very.much is dependent on what we call the.input output io.io kind of setup and in the link master.itself literally there is a setting.called.input and output so you take the data.point from one.opc server and put it on to the other.side.of the opc server i hope that i'm not.confusing you so you're taking text from.one opc server.and sending that data to another opc.server and another tag.right so that's that's typically the use.case of the link master.the second way is to use it as a.concentrator so you can actually link.you can actually use link master to talk.to various opc server.and the link master itself also has a.opc server.so oopcda server so what what this does.is that if you meant.what what you can do is that you can use.the link master to kind of establish a.single connection to all the different.opc servers.and broker that data out to third-party.opc client.so in a way you're actually uh kind of.optimizing and improving the performance.by preventing.situations where you have multiple scan.rates coming in and.you know people are looking for all.sorts of data and you know just.creating unnecessary traffic on the.network.right so as a protocol translator uh in.the first use case we talk about sending.data from one opc server to another opc.server.but you can also use it to send between.text in the same opc server.so in this scenario you can see that we.are using a tag from.capware and sending it to another tag.also in caprara.so what this does is that if your texts.are in different devices.you are doing a protocol translation.because for example the tag a belongs to.a modbus device and.the tab b could be a mitsubishi device.and you're just sending.data from modbus to mitsubishi so you're.doing some sort of.translation over there right so this is.uh i'm going to do a demo on this but.essentially this is uh what.what we're talking about you can choose.the text inside the ui.and pass it to another tag.so that's really all for for link master.it's a pretty straightforward.product and before i go into the.redundancy master i'm going to just do a.quick demo on this.so over here right this software itself.is pretty much link master so i'm using.the same vm that i was using earlier on.and what we can do right essentially is.to browse the.the opc servers that we have.and look for text to add in so in in the.link master you will first.add a group a link group we call it and.then you can create a new.link right just call it link zero.oh wait that's a better way so we what.you can actually do right is just to.for example i have a tag that is called.random one five so the random one five.type is a tank that is.generated through the simulator driver.and it just creates a.random number between one to five right.i'm going to throw it to this thing.called the screen control tag in the.modbus tcp side.so i'm going to just take these and drag.in input so you can see it's defined as.the input.and now the output is unassigned and.what i'm going to do is i'm going to.just look for the modbus tag that i want.to throw to.and i'm going to just throw it in so you.can see that once i.uh once i throw it in and i haven't said.it once i save it.and update the runtime you will see that.this will eventually.the data over here will be passed on to.that data.oh i gotta start the runtime.see that so once the thing is committed.you can see the data is being pushed on.to from one tag in in catware into.another text.so that's how the the link master is.typically used if let's say we are.looking to use only the link.function of the advanced tag.right so the next section that i will.talk about will be the redundancy master.okay the redundancy master when we talk.about it we need to identify.normally recognize that there's.different layers of redundancy.and it's important to understand that.redundancy doesn't mean high.availability so you gotta.you know differentiate it uh pretty.clearly.so on the client side the clients can be.set up to be a redundant pair and.provide a failover condition.um the most important thing to.understand here is that capware is an.opc server so the.the failover behavior really is not on.the cadwell's portion it has to be done.on the client's portion so if you have.an opc.client that is connected to capwear the.client itself must have the redundancy.function built in.right because the server does nothing.unless.a client comes and talk to and comes and.talk to us and you know ask for data.so so really the only thing that we can.do really is to just have another node.of camera with the exact same.configuration.and on the device layer that will be.something that we can manage because for.for catware we when we talk down to the.device layer we can we are we actually.controls the driver.and that is the area that we can which.we can do the.some sort of redundancy using some.features of hardware.so the first feature will be the media.level redundancy i.don't think i would go too deep into.this because i think vivek has mentioned.this.right so the the redundancy plug-in as.vivek mentioned.uh it comes built in with drivers and.they are free of the box.it is available under the device and.there will be a redundancy tab.and what it does is that it allows you.to pair different devices as a redundant.pair.or you could have a single um device.with two.two network connectivity and you kind of.need two of the network into the.into the cab server ex so typically you.could have like a cpu with a dual net.card.so two two network cards and they are on.like a different ring network or.something like that.and then you can use mlr to kind of.redundantly.and this is actually how you would do it.right you just need to click the.device itself right click properties and.you should be able to see this screen.appear and just go under redundancy.and choose the secondary path right you.choose the secondary device.and once you've done that you will.notice that the icon will change you can.see that the icon is now like two.devices.and and on the you on the client side.all you have to do is to subscribe to.the primary.so when anything happens or the failover.occurs um.if you over will be transparent to the.client.right so in terms of when to fail over.we have different operating modes the.first one being switch on failure.so as long as we detect some form of.error or communication to the device we.will do the failover.the second one would be to switch on.trigger so depends on.so this would be a more advanced kind of.situation or conditional failover.you can either choose to fail over when.attack doesn't change value.or the quality stops the bad or you.could even when the value goes to one or.something like that.right so switch on trigger and the last.two are pretty much for.i would say for troubleshooting so you.can force it to primarily force it to.secondary.and so forth.so that's on the ml feature and it comes.built into the driver you don't have to.buy anything doesn't install anything.when you have capware you connect to it.is already there.the next one that we'll talk about will.be the redundancy master.so the redundancy master is pretty much.similar to link master in the sense that.there are standalone products that you.have to buy.however the redundancy master was.designed to provide redundancy.capabilities into the.client side so remember that in the.earlier.earlier sections i talked about the.redundancy master or rather the client.has to have that failover capability.so in the events that you do not have.that failover capability.um that's where you will use the.redundancy master to provide that field.over capability.so the most important thing to.understand the redundancy master that is.exclusively opcda so you have.it was designed to provide uh failover.or rather.clean over capabilities to opc da.clients only.so if you have a ua client that you want.to add for some reason it has.it doesn't have a refill over situation.that's really this product is not for.you so this product is really for the.traditional ot kind of.environment where we will use the.redundancy master.so this will be a typical architecture.or rather a typical scenario that uh.of a of a sample architecture um.so you can see that in this screen right.we have two computers one of them.uh with the da client and the other one.with.uh with just a opc server.okay so what happens that when we.identify a failover.uh we when oh no when a field over.condition is.achieved you will see that the.connection will break and redundancy.master itself will then swap.to swap from from this opc server to.that opc server.so let me repeat again so you can see.that this will be the blue color line.which is the.the normal way you can set the.redundancy master to talk to this uh.opc server first and when things happen.oops.when things happen you can see that the.renassi master will then be aware that.this connection is down and it goes to.the primary.segway the secondary da server which is.located on the same pc.where the redundancy master is so if you.look at this diagram you should also be.aware that because this is opcda.the dcom settings between pca and pcb.must be configured.if not this system will not work all.right so that's another consideration.that you have to think through.in terms of failover uh we the.redundancy master have three different.modes uh.basically the hot mode one mode and.combo.the hot mode right is the fastest.failover in the sense that when.you set a redundancy master to hot mode.it will it will then open.connection to both opc servers the.primary and the secondary.and data will be pulled actively right.so the.the redundancy master will literally.subscribe to it and get the data.on the one mode uh what you would do if.what you will do is that it will on the.secondary server you will only.subscribe but put the text as inactive.so.so in a way the the connection to get.the data is is being done halfway.so the opc client or rather the.redundancy master.will open a connection to the secondary.and they will.subscribe to the text that are required.but they put them in inactive mode.and last but not least we have the code.mode which is completely no connection.at all.so during the failover what will happen.is that the redundancy master.will then start the whole.connection uh to the secondary upon.detection of the failure of the primary.node so.it will take the longest time uh longest.period of time but.in the sense the the benefit in the.sense that they will not open any.connection at all.right so in terms of uh failover.condition you can actually choose to.monitor a text.attack in the uh in the opc server that.you have so for example.maybe the on a situation where the data.don't change.then you can use it to to kind of set.the field over condition.and the redundancy master actually comes.built in with.uh server dynastics as well so you can.actually see the same.uh so the diagnostics in case you know.you have issues on field over you can.backtrack on the locks and things like.that.the another feature that comes with the.redundancy master is email notification.so when the failover occurs you can.actually send out emails to notify you.so in cases where you want to do a ua.client failover.really the the solution that we will.recommend or rather what we have.is to just use capware and combine it.with mrr to do what we call a ua.tunneling.and that will allow you to have some.form of redundancy.capability to a ua client that doesn't.have.a failover capability so so it's very.straightforward if you have a.client which is based on opcda and you.need to give it redundancy capabilities.so you can go with link master.however if you are using an opc ua.client that.for some reason have no failover.capabilities uh what we recommend you to.to do is really just to use the ua.client in cap server ex.plus the mr feature to kind of achieve.that kind of.redundant behavior.yeah with that i think i've come to the.end of my.section.thank you steve that was quite.insightful.okay so folks we've come to towards the.end of our uh.discussion for today and we are now.enough.time for some 15 minutes of q a sessions.so.again we have a lot of questions from.the audiences.but i'll try to cover as as many as i.can.during this short session so the first.one.steve i'd like you to take this is.what is the use case of a odbc client.driver.uh use case of odbc clients driver is.that.is that correct yes yes so to to.leverage everybody.uh this this particular customer is.talking about the odbc client driver.it's not this is not talking about the.data logger.so the odbc client driver is designed.for you to connect to an odbc.compliant database and retrieve the data.the reason why we are doing that could.be that.you are interfacing with a third party.software.which has no way to get the data out.beyond extracting from their database.directly.so that would be a case where you want.to do a.kind of a direct to sql extraction of.data.so that would be one use case the other.use case could be that you are.um doing stock procedures and you want.to.have uh have cap web trigger to trigger.a bunch of stock procedures stored in.the sql server itself.so for example maybe when the plc goes.down you want capware to trigger a stop.procedure.which can trigger you know like data.other.other functions that you want the sql.database to do.so that's really the use case of the.odbc client driver.thank you steve uh vivek can you take.this one.does auto demotion option.configured for a project containing 150.channels with.each channel having 150 tags.each will increase the performance of.entire project.this seems to be very project specific.question but.yes yes.for uh it is a practical approach for.the enable of auto demotion.so have some type of this performance.based.it is very improvement and use that.particular.properties of this tags or the devices.so yes it is uh auto demotion.in a bus facilities is very useful at.the time.the performance of this values of these.devices.okay so all those who are interested to.know more about auto demotion can get in.touch with music after this uh.webinar and we will be able to help you.with further features of this.can you take this up uh does the.redundancy master.support windows server 2016.2019.supported operating system uh yeah that.means the master.i think 2016 uh is supported.2016. uh uh.and uh there is like as explained by.steven's session.like uh redundancy master uh is the.product we have but in capture also you.can have.like more or less similar facilities.with.uh media level redundancy so you can.also look for.kepware in case issues with operating.system compatibility.media level redundancy is also available.for.functionality okay thank you.steve this one's for you what is the.minimum.latency which can be configured.for a device for example if a plc can.emit.five millisecond data can get pair.handle this.steve view there he's muted.all right i'm muted yeah so the answer.is no.uh because the cadbury runs on uh.general purpose os you know like the x86.machines on windows platform.the system itself is not real time.compared to say a plc a plc runs on.cycle time right cpu cycles.so no we cannot do anything that is.faster than.five millisecond and and to be honest if.you really need to.so so really the question here is uh.sometimes.or most of the cases that we encounter.do not require sampling at that kind of.rate.because what you really need to.determine is what is the fastest.rate fastest rate of change of data and.what you would do is you would.sample twice at that rate so if you're.interested you can look up for sampling.theorem.and and that really is uh some of the.advice that we can give you.uh but for us to your questions no we.cannot do five millisecond data.the fastest i think we can do reasonably.is around the range of 50 to 100.milliseconds.okay thank you steve.sheenu can you take this one for the.same plc.can we have multiple devices similar to.the equipment.that is connected or we need.to have only one device containing the.tags.of all equipment connected to plc.yeah thanks uh what i interrupt from in.that question is that.if you can configure multiple devices.under.each channel that is right yes you can.configure.yes you can configure multiple devices.and.the users can actually see the number of.devices each driver is supported.in the summary of each driver.so this can be seen under server.configuration.and if you have to click on help and.support information you can click the.you can select the driver and you get.the summary of.the drive what channels how many.channels it supports and how many.devices.it supports the driver supports okay.uh village the next one's for you can we.use.iot gateway to send data to a mongodb.let's say on aws uh.so mongodb for my understanding it.supports rest api.so we can use basically iot gateway rest.agent to exchange data with mongodb.yeah steve feel free to comment to that.one if you if you have some points oh.yes.definitely rest we have done it before.okay so yeah so the participant who's.asked this question the answer is.yes and it has been done before and.steve just confirmed on record so you.can play back the recording.okay so see the next one's for you as.well can you please explain.connectivity and tag assignment and thin.works for.get from kepware i have no idea what.this question is about.can i assume that you are asking in the.sense of.connecting from from teamwork to capwear.so in that scenario uh the connection.from things to cap where is true.the thing was native connectivity so.really.really that's it that that's what it is.so you you will enable that and you will.connect it to that.and in terms of tech assignment i will.assume you are talking about.uh binding the text into the theme.property.so that that is done automatically.through the ids thing.uh that was developed in the tingles.platform.so uh i would encourage you to just take.a look at the guides that we have.available from teamworks.from tingles itself and and the whole.process is pretty.straightforward there's no need for you.to do any manual stuff once you.enable the native connectivity uh go.into tin box.under the industrial thing uh browse for.the object.just select what you want and click.blind and that's it the properties will.be.automatically loaded so that's a very.teamwork specific.question yeah.so that's that's really.thank you steve okay so the next one.again see for you.is for influx database you.did not use data logger how was it.different from a data logger.so in in terms of influx db uh really.the key reason is that the recommended.approach is true rest if you read.through the the documentation.the odbc method i believe is is possible.but we have not tested it out on our end.so far.can you mute yourself i guess that we.have a static from your.uh login thank you.okay uh so next question is.for senu does it.help or does uh does it need to purchase.additional license for linking tag.does advanced tags require separate.license.yes i think uh if you're not in the.process during the presentation uh there.are two methods of linking the tags one.is using the.link master and other is the advanced.tag and both link master is a separate.product and uh.advanced track again is a plugin so both.has to be purchased separately.and if you need more detail in selecting.this product you can.reach out to us we'll share the.the required license based on your.application.the answer to that is yes it is required.and then.uh for more information she knows.available to answer your question.uh nilish uh can you take this one up by.unmuting.does capper server x support.communication with alan bradley.guard logics five five eight zero safety.control yes.yes uh kepler supports five five eight.zero.so if you go to kepler site under like.uh.particular driver in supported devices.you can find out this.5580 is supported yes.okay steve the next question is does.link master convert opc.da to ua and vice versa.no it does not if you want to convert it.to d8 to ua.just use the opcda client driver in.capware.and the ua and the data once the data.gets into capware it will be.automatically.exposed out as the ua connection.and i just wanted to add on on the.specific question on the 5580.i think that you're talking about the.gutlogix5580.so the gun gunlogix 5580 is technically.we do not officially support it because.we are not certified and designed for.life safety control.however you can connect it with the.allen bradley ethernet.so you can connect it but if you want to.you know if you're coming from the.certification standpoint uh we might not.be we are not certified on that so just.be careful of that.okay uh nilish this the next question.for you can you.please share the syntax of a ua.address tag okay.so so as uh like uh in demonstration uh.like i mentioned uh basically opc uh.client driver uses syntax like.your name space index then type and the.value.so name space index basically but most.of the time.you'll be directly browsing to the.office.so you will get this syntax.automatically but to just.for understanding uh is the syntax will.be like name space index.uh then type of the like address.uh it will be mainly string and then the.value whatever address value will be.there.so we will get this address directly.from the server while browsing.the tags okay.vivid can you take this one up for us.please.does the link tag read and write.to multiple tags from various different.servers and plc devices at the same time.and is there any delay that may cause.during this process.or does it overload the network.it says the longest question but.do you want me to repeat it for you uh.no.i understand but it is possible.but thing is like that uh the server.hardware or whatever the.how many tags you maybe link or.how many servers you were the multiple.uh connections are there so that is the.basic part about the multiple.link type combination so.we require the exact applications about.the multiple.link tags conclude about the overloading.of the system.okay so.the other question uh related to that.was how many tags.can be linked maximum limit of tags.or devices yes that already answered.that that is the.attack you can link.for that particular devices so no limit.for the link tanks.but it is depends on the what are the.specified limit of the there is no any.limitation of the tags but.the devices channels limitations for.that particular drivers are available in.each driver's help but there is no.limitation about the.tank okay.uh steve i think the next questions you.can take up.the question is uh.what which is the latest version of link.master.and can it be used with windows 10.okay so for uh for the link master the.latest version.i believe is two point let me just.double check right now.i think still it's three point zero.yeah i would think so so if you go to.our uh my cab web portal you will be.able to download the.latest version we typically only have.the latest version up there.uh let me just double check on that and.on the question on whether we can use on.windows 10.so like unfortunately i believe.the link master is not stated to.uh officially supported on windows 10 so.it's like redundancy master.we never there's a certain list of.supporter os.but um we the reason why we never state.the operating systems that you.like say windows 10 or things like that.is because.we have not load tested against it so.the system will still work.uh you can still try to use the link.master all the redundancy master on say.server 2019 or 2016..it should still work however uh.officially we have not tested it out.so but if you run into any problems you.know feel free to drop an email and we.will.we will we will check it out for you and.for the question on the link master the.latest version yes it's 3.0.94.so there's a couple of versions down.yeah but but that is the latest version.okay and the next question i'm taking is.on data logger.can we be able to log the data to oracle.database using.data logger in caprara.i guess i'm thinking so yes you can use.it.okay so ladies and gentlemen we are.bang on time so i'm taking the last one.and the other questions that are still.trickling in we will try to.respond to you with an offline chat or.we will try to email you.the last one that i'm taking in for.today is.and steve you can answer this what is.the maximum advisable.count of devices we can configure in a.single channel.oh that's a good question uh so the.so the maximum number of devices the.theoretical limit is determined by the.protocol that you're using.and the number of devices that you can.find we can support color channel is.listed in our help documentation.so check out the help documentation to.see how many uh maximum number of device.that we can.configure having said that the advanced.number.of device depends on what kind of.performance you can tolerate.because as you stack devices down the.channel uh.the communication cycle will go slower.and slower and slower.it can go to a point where you realize.that it just don't make sense so you.want to split into more channels.so uh so what you would typically do is.that you will create a channel.and you create a bunch of devices and.what we encourage you to do is use the.benchmarking.tools that we have in capweb to figure.out to see if this.performance that based on your.configuration is acceptable for your use.case.if not then we will recommend you to.start to do the server optimization.which is just to multi-trade it so reach.out to sala if let's say you need help.on on this.and then i think they will be happy to.help you with that okay.thank you steve thank you for taking all.the questions.it it it is uh it was nice to see that.none of the questions were unanswered.so i guess that that speaks about the.confidence and knowledge of our speakers.today uh however ladies and gentlemen.that's.all that we could pack in for today's.session.after this particular webinar you will.get.an email and also there's a link that we.are shared where there's.additional documents that you can.download and use for your.offline references these are documents.related to kepware data logger and other.details.you can obviously reach out to the teams.that you are.already in touch with and there is.also a short survey that you will.receive.after this webinar where we would like.you to share your feedback.i wish you a very safe stay.and have a pleasant evening ahead thank.you ladies and gentlemen.and a big round of thank you to all us.lovely speakers who've.taken out their crucial time out of.their busy schedule especially steve.thank you for spending time today thank.you thank you.thank you.

Do military members have to pay any fee for leave or fiancee forms?

First off there are no fees for leaves or requests for leave in any branch of the United States military. Second there is no such thing as a fiancée form in the U.S. military. There is however a form for applying for a fiancée visa (K-1 Visa)that is available from the Immigration and Customs Service (Fiancé(e) Visas ) which would be processed by the U.S. State Department at a U.S. Consulate or Embassy overseas. However these fiancée visas are for foreigners wishing to enter the United States for the purpose of marriage and are valid for 90 days. They have nothing to do with the military and are Continue Reading

How can I fill out Google's intern host matching form to optimize my chances of receiving a match?

I was selected for a summer internship 2016. I tried to be very open while filling the preference form: I choose many products as my favorite products and I said I'm open about the team I want to join. I even was very open in the location and start date to get host matching interviews (I negotiated the start date in the interview until both me and my host were happy.) You could ask your recruiter to review your form (there are very cool and could help you a lot since they have a bigger experience). Do a search on the potential team. Before the interviews, try to find smart question that you are Continue Reading

How can I make it easier for users to fill out a form on mobile apps?

Make it fast. Ask them as few questions as possible (don't collect unnecessary information) and pre-populate as many fields as possible. Don't ask offputting questions where the respondent might have to enter sensitive personal information. If some users see you collecting sensitive information, they might not be ready to share that with you yet based on what you are offering, and they will think twice about completing the form.

When do I have to learn how to fill out a W-2 form?

While I did not study physics this is something that relates to my field as well. One thing to remember is the scope of the field which you are talking about. With physics it might seem narrower than History or Archaeology but I suspect that when you boil it down it isn’t. It would be impossible to cover everything in a subject even going all the way through to gaining a doctorate. The answer you got and posted up is very accurate and extremely good advice. What a lot of it boils down to in education (especially nowadays) is not so much teaching specific facts but teaching themes and how to find Continue Reading
