Server supports redundancy controllers

Press Release   •   Jun 12, 2017 11:02 BST

The PC Worx UA server from Phoenix Contact enables you to access all variables of PC Worx programmable controllers via the OPC UA (Unified Architecture) communication protocol. With the release of server version 1.10, redundancy controllers (RFC 460R) are now also supported. In the event of a redundancy switch-over, the server automatically accesses the new controller handling the process without variables being lost.

The server is designed for high volumes: it can forward data from up to 200 controllers to a visualisation or production control system. Variables are mapped via the PLCopen profile. The OPC UA server uses the binary protocol for communication, resulting in high data transmission speeds. A security concept based on certificates protects against unauthorised access, tampering, and operating errors. In addition to authentication based on certificates, the server also offers the option of encrypting communication. Detailed diagnostics and easy to understand security configuration were a particular area of focus. Using the supplied configurator, users can easily configure the security settings and diagnose the current communication connections to the clients and the controllers, and they can also do this remotely.
