Redundancy – Simple and Effective
Your project team is impressed: you have just engineered a redundant system within a matter of minutes – and it works perfectly. All it took was just a few clicks of the mouse and it did not require you to program a single line of code. All the functions you needed to create a redundant network were available in an out-of-the-box solution. All you needed to do was select the server and standby server and configure the redundancy type.
- Maximum data consistency
- Robust and secure
- Seamless redundancy, out-of-the-box
- Minimized sources of error and risk
The seamless redundancy in zenon guarantees maximum data consistency. You won’t even have to deal with gaps when you switch to a standby server because the standby server also remains connected to the PLC (provided the PLC allows this).
Rated redundancy uses the quality of the data transmission as a criterion. If the quality parameters are not met, a standby server with a better data connection steps in.
Data security and seamless redundancy at the touch of a button
The seamless redundancy offered by zenon guarantees you maximum data consistency. zenon’s intelligent redundancy system offers a lot more than just switching to a standby server should your original server fail. It also ensures that none of your data gets lost during the switch. As a result, you are able to configure seamless data transmission without a single second of programming. You select and configure all your properties straight from zenon Engineering Studio, saving you lots of time and avoiding any potential sources of error right from the start of engineering.
Tailor-made redundancy, out-of-the-box
zenon provides a range of ready-made redundancy modes to suit a wide range of requirements. For instance, you can easily configure dominant and non-dominant redundancy, while benefiting from secure and robust performance.
One of the most unique aspects of zenon is its rated redundancy, which uses the quality of the data transmission as a criterion. To do this, you define the various parameters relating to the quality of data which must be met within the data flow to enable the server to do its job. If these parameters are not met, a standby server with a better data connection steps in.
All possible forms of redundancy can be configured without any additional programming work.
