Software Toolbox releases new version of TOP Server

Expands functionality with OPC UA and OPC A&E connectivity

By CBR Staff Writer

Software Toolbox has released TOP Server Version 5.2, an OPC and native HMI device connectivity software application, to its client base and channel partners.

TOP Server, powered by Kepware, delivers enhancements offering users the new choices in OPC technology and new alarm and event generation capabilities for data collected in TOP Server, the company said.

According to Software Toolbox, the new version of the software application includes, OPC UA server and client interfaces, expanded OPC-A&E server interface and driver updates. The OPC UA, the new OPC interfaces, offers web-based services and provides secure messaging to other OPC UA applications without using DCOM.

In addition, users can specify conditions on tags read from devices using any of TOP Server’s drivers and generate alarm and event messages using the OPC A&E standard. The new offerings also expands the functionality of the ControlLogix Ethernet, Mettler Toledo, Idec and Modbus Ethernet drivers, and adds a new C# sample application for the Custom Interface Driver.

John Weber, president of Software Toolbox, said: “The OPC A&E condition-monitoring plug-in option gives users another way to get value from data they are collecting using TOP Server.

Many HMI/SCADA packages offer an OPC A&E client interface in their alarm management systems and now our clients have a way to deliver alarms and events messages directly to the systems from TOP Server.”
