|UCON the user configurable driver development system for KEPServerEX.
How often have you needed to get that
last piece of data from a bar code scanner, scale, or other industrial device but have
been hindered by the lack of a communication driver? Now there is a solution.
The UCON driver enables you to quickly and easily develop communications drivers for any
serial device or ethernet device.
Designed as a driver plug-in, UCON
is completely integrated with KEPware's industry leading OPC server KEPServerEX. This
integration insures that all of the features and functions you depend on are available for
your own driver projects. Features such as OPC 1.0 and 2.0 support with tag browsing,
automatic tag database generation, DDE support, NT service support, diagnostics, and event
logging are included.
UCON also supports all of the
features found in any of KEPServerEX's serial drivers. Features such as modem support,
communication port configuration, standard error handling features with configurable
retries and timeouts, and KEPServerEX's built-in communications diagnostic display. Once
you develop a communications driver profile, your users can make changes to common
settings such as serial port number or device ID without changing the profile.
UCON is based upon the same technology found in every KEPServerEX driver. With UCON you
can get all of the benefits of a true multi-threaded 32-bit environment without the need
to learn the intricacies of Microsoft Windows development.
|Driver Profile Development
The development of a driver profile begins by defining the tags or data that needs to be
read from or written to a serial device. After the tags have been defined the next step is
to define the transactions needed to communicate with the device.
The transaction editor provides a wide range of tools and actions that can be used to
build the messages that will be sent to a device. Additional actions allow the responses
from the device to be processed and turned into tag data available to your OPC client
Development of a driver profile
requires access to the protocol documentation of the target device.
A working understanding of general device communications is highly recommended.
|Available actions include:
Write Device ID
Write Tag Data
Test Device ID
Jump to Step
With each of these actions,
UCON provides a wide range of formatting options allowing data to be sent and received in
packed binary, ASCII, ASCII Hex, and simple text formats.
a driver profile is a simple process
|The first step is to define the tags required by your OPC application
The next step is to define the
transactions that read or write data from your tags.
|Finally use the diagnostic view and OPC Quick Client to test your driver profile.
