Chipkin™ OPC UA Data Client (aka Data Logger, Data Recorder) is a device that connects to OPC UA Devices and Networks and reads and stores the data. The data client operates by reading data from the configured registers and stores the values in an internal database. These values can then be logged to an archive file or can be accessed via the data clients REST API as XML, JSON, or CSV data using HTTP Get requests. Log files can be accessed by a Web Browser or FTP client.
The device requires minimal configuration and can be considered a ‘plug and play’ component of any network system. It’s ready to operate ‘out of the box’ and can be installed without an engineer’s approval.
Quickserver Gateway (Serial-Ethernet)
The QuickServer is a high performance, fully configurable, cost effective Building and Industrial Automation gateway for integrators to easily interface devices to networks in commercial buildings and industrial plants.
System integrators world-wide have benefitted from the value of the powerful line of interoperability gateways offered by FieldServer. Now, QuickServer adds to that value by running the same robust FieldServer protocol conversion software on a highly cost effective platform backed by the experience, engineering expertise and proven technical support that integrators have come to expect from FieldServer.
QuickServer (Serial-Ethernet) is available in two series:
The QuickServer FS-QS-2X10 series is available at four different point capacities. Each QuickServer is preloaded with two drivers (serial and/or Ethernet) from a customer’s choice of 140 different drivers, E.G. Modbus, BACnet, SNMP, EtherNet/IP and many more.
The FS-QS-2010 with 2 RS485 and 1 ethernet port can support up to 250 points. The FS-QS-2210 can support up to 500 points. The FS-QS-2310 can support up to 3,000 points. The FS-QS-2410 can support up to 5,000 points.
Equivalently the FS-QS-2020 with 1 RS485, 1 RS232 and 1 ethernet port can support up to 250 points. The FS-QS-2220 can support up to 500 points. The FS-QS-2320 can support up to 3,000 points. The FS-QS-2420 can support up to 5,000 points.
Every QuickServer includes browser-based tools to make it easy to set-up QuickServer and perform diagnostics including determination of status, network settings, node information, map descriptors and more. The USB flash drive also includes the Discovery utility to determine what FieldServers are on a network.
The OPC UA Driver allows the FieldServer to transfer data to and from devices over Ethernet using the OPC UA protocol. The OPC UA Driver uses TCP, either connecting to an OPC UA server using regular opc.tcp or securely using https. If using https, users can upload their client certificate and private key. The default port is 26543 and is configurable.
The driver was developed for the OPC Unified Architecture protocol specification from the OPC Foundation. The specification can be found by clicking here.
The FieldServer can emulate both a Client and a Server. When configured as a Client, the OPC UA driver will connect to the configured OPC UA Servers and attempt to read the requested data points. This data is stored on the FieldServer to be mapped to other protocols or simply to be viewed. When configured as a Server, the OPC UA driver creates an endpoint that other OPC UA Clients can connect to, and creates the OPC objects and attributes based on the configuration to make data from other protocols available to OPC UA Clients.
