S4 SNMP OPC Products

The S4 Open: OPC-N2 Router

Expanding the Versatility of METASYS® by JCIS4 Open: OPC-N2 RouterThe S4 Open: OPC-N2 Router creates flexibility and cost savings in building automation systems. The OPC-N2 Router from the S4 group is a gateway providing OPC devices access to up to four Metasys® N2 by JCI networks. It enables seamless OPC integration with N2 networks, Ethernet compatibility, and provides cost saving in virtually all N2 upgrade, maintenance, and replacement tasks.

 

 

 

Key Benefits

  • Ability to bring many N2 buses in a large complex building into one virtual N2 Network©. The N2 Router acts as a bus master for each network and allows independent adjustment of polling rates and other parameters on each one.
  • Standard vendor tools are used to configure N2 devices on each N2 bus.
  • Automatically locates and identifies new devices, and their Process Points on the N2 bus.
  • All points on all N2 buses are displayable through the management console.
  • N2 interfaces can be extended over Ethernet – TCP/IP connections
  • N2 interfaces can be extended over wireless connections
  • Filtering and point mapping allow you to expose only a subset of the active points to upstream supervisory controllers (NCM, N30, FX, or Metasys by JCI Extended systems) through the Virtual N2 Network©.
  • The N2 Router acts as a N2-Open device and attaches to any N2 bus.

 

Suggested Applications

  • Combining multiple legacy N2 buses into a single virtual N2 bus when upgrading technology such as less powerful supervisory controllers to current generation Metasys® by JCI systems. This approach drastically improves the economics of doing an upgrade by minimizing the number of newer more powerful supervisory controllers needed and eliminating the need to reprogram or readdress any of the devices on legacy N2 field buses.
  • Migrating legacy M3 or M5 workstation graphics to the commercial off the shelf Iconics Genesis32 platform.
  • Combining remote sections of a building or campus into a single virtual N2 bus with the site’s existing Ethernet infrastructure. This greatly increases the economics of an installation and making a Metasys by JCI installation cost competitive. See our Extreme N2 Networking Tech Notes for a list of currently supported devices.

OPC-SNMP Enterprise Agent

The Obermeier Software, OPC-SNMP Gateway, is the most fully featured SNMP product family available for enterprise level integration with Ole for Process Control (OPC) environments.

 

You are already managing your IT systems, databases and applications with a centralized Network Management System (e.g. HP OpenView, IBM Tivoli, CA Unicenter TNG), however your buildings, your plant floor machinery and your remote facilities aren’t still integrated.

 

Here’s the solution! Open OPC-connectivity is state of the art for Non-IT devices.
The OPC-SNMP Agent seamlessly integrates any OPC-enabled system with your existing Network Management System.

 

 

The result:
A central point of administration for your whole enterprise:
Your Enterprise Management System !

  • The OPC-SNMP Enterprise Agent (eAgent) provides proxy agent services for OPC-enabled automation systems.
  • The eAgent enables the integration of any OPC-based automation system with traditional Network or Enterprise management environments, making your building and process control automation systems and applications manageable components of total Enterprise Resource Management.
  • The eAgent enables the integration of any OPC-based HMI, like Johnson Controls, Inc. Metasys® BAS, to SNMP network and system managers. A typical application would be integrating Metasys® by JCI Alarms and Events to the customer’s enterprise SNMP manager like Aprisma Spectrum, CA Unicenter, HP OpenView, IBM Tivoli, IpSwitch WhatsUp Gold, or Micromuse Netcool.
  • The eAgent can monitor OPC Items and trigger a SNMP trap to an enterprise manager when defined thresholds are crossed.
  • The eAgent can provide a key data gathering and system monitoring component of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and data warehousing applications.

SNMP-OPC Gateway

All you need to connect SNMP and OPC!

 

The Obermeier Software SNMP OPC Gateway is the most fully featured SNMP product family available for the OPC environment!

 

ETHERNET and TCP/IP are key technologies for next generation of distributed process automation and control networks and managing these networks is crucial and a key to success. Talking about management is talking about SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol).

 

Highlights

 

SNMP-OPC Server

The SNMP OPC Gateway – SNMP-OPC Server enables full monitoring and control of SNMP-enabled devices from any OPC-based HMI (e.g. Genesis32, Intouch, WinCC, Intellution, etc.). This enables you to easily make your HMI SCADA system a powerful and low-priced industrial network manager.

 

OPC-SNMP Agent

The SNMP OPC Gateway – OPC-SNMP Enterprise Agent provides proxy agent services for OPC-enabled automation Systems. This enables you to monitor OPC-enabled systems from an existing centralized network manager (e.g. HP OpenView, IBM Tivoli, etc.)

 

Device Profiles

Provide pre-defined templates for mapping the SNMP MIB objects to OPC Process Points and Alarm and Event transactions resulting in the easiest configuration of any product on the market. Users even don’t need any knowledge about SNMP!

 

 

Key Benefits of the SNMP-OPC Server

 

  • Provides the core technology for solutions that integrate SNMP manageable devices into OPC-based HMI systems like Iconics Genesis32, Siemens Apogee, or the Johnson Controls, Inc. Metasys® M-Series Workstations.
  • Supports all common OPC Interfaces (OPC Data Access 1.0A, 2.0 and also OPC Alarm & Event Interface).
  • The SNMP OPC Gateway – SNMP-OPC Server can bring the status of critical network components (hubs, switches, routers, UPS systems, Transfer switches, etc.) into your Industrial Automation or HVAC application HMI to give you complete visibility to everything that could impact your ability to operate successfully.
  • The OPC SNMP Gateway – SNMP-OPC Server enables system operators to send commands to SNMP manageable devices, like UPS systems, via the HMI.
