Software Toolbox® has released TOP Server Version 5.2 to its client base and channel partners. TOP Server, powered by Kepware, is Software Toolbox’s OPC and native HMI device connectivity software application. The new release delivers enhancements offering users the latest choices in OPC technology and new alarm and event generation capabilities for data collected in TOP Server.

“The release of the OPC UA interfaces in TOP Server delivers on our commitment to protect our client’s investment in OPC technology and demonstrates the value of an ongoing relationship with Software Toolbox,” said John Weber, president of Software Toolbox. “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.”

New features in version 5.2 include:

  • OPC UA Server & Client Interfaces – OPC UA, the latest generation of OPC interfaces, offers Web-based services, is firewall friendly and provides secure messaging to other OPC UA applications without using DCOM. TOP Server delivers an OPC UA server interface and optional OPC UA client interface, which empowers users to use TOP Server as a standards-based tunneling solution.
  • Expanded OPC-A&E Server Interface – Using the new OPC A&E condition-monitoring plug-in, users can specify conditions on tags read from devices using any of TOP Server’s hundreds of drivers and generate alarm and event messages using the OPC A&E standard.
  • Driver Updates – 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.

TOP Server 5.2 will be available for download or as an upgrade for users on active support and maintenance contracts on Feb. 11, 2010 at
