FieldServer Technologies Releases Advanced Auto-Discovery Feature for ProtoCessor
May 29, 2012 – FieldServer Technologies announces the latest
enhancement for the ProtoCessor OEM Gateway, Advanced
Auto-Discovery. Whether your application has one or more of the
same device or several different devices, the Advanced Auto-Discovery
feature on ProtoCessor can automatically discover known devices on the
network and then automatically configure the ProtoCessor product to
provide the protocol translation necessary. The Advanced
Auto-Discovery feature is found on all ProtoCessor products, including
the ProtoCessor, ProtoCarrier/ProtoCessor solution and the
ProtoNode. It eliminates the need to manually set DIP switches,
to select a configuration or to download configuration files for
specific products. A single ProtoCessor product can store up to
30 device profiles with multiple protocols, thus the OEM need only
stock one type of gateway to handle their entire line of products and
that gateway will automatically detect the device connected and
configure the gateway
The advantage is the OEM only needs to stock one ProtoCessor product to meet the various protocol translation needs of their full product line. And the end-user/installer can quickly and easily configure the various products on-site.
How it works:
1. ProtoCessor polls the network to discover the devices found. It has the profile (point lists and mapping) of all for the OEM’s controllers in its memory, supporting up to 30 different products.
2. Once ProtoCessor identifies that a device matches one of the profiles in memory, it will load that profile and move on to the next device address.
3. It will continue the search on the network until the point limitation has been reached (i.e. 1200 Modbus points) or if all device addresses have been polled.
4. Once it completes the entire polling cycle, it will build the configuration file for all the devices discovered and automatically load the file.
5. Then ProtoCessor completes the discovery process and is ready to provide the correct protocol translation required.
