For example the following is a screenshot from National Instruments LookOut when browsing for an Integra Diagnostics Datapoint. In this case the highlighted data point is the Receive Signal Strength Indicator for the Radio with a short ID of 100. The listings in most OPC Client Browsers are presented in alphabetical order so common data types are grouped to gether. The Radio Short ID is the last three digits in the datapoint name.

13. DCI - OPCTR01 Integra OPC Diagnostics TECHNICAL MANUAL April 23, 2013 1 - 10  200 1 - 2013 DCI Technologies Inc. www.dcitech.com Inbound connection , which is active only for TCP or TELNET connections, specifies if the OPC Server or the network device is to initiate the TCP or TELNET connection. If cleared, the OPC Server starts the connection. If set, the network dev ice establishes the connection. Accept data from any port , which is active only for UDP connections, specifies if the OPC Server should accept any message sent to the Listen Port or if the message should be validated against the sending Port number. Checki ng this box allows the OPC Server to accept any message. For TELNET connections, there are two additional options. These deal with the placing of NULL characters (hexadecimal 00) after carriage returns (hexadecimal 0D). Some TELNET devices place a NULL aft er a carriage return in binary mode even though the TELNET protocol does not specify this. The first option, Ignore received NULLs after CRs in binary mode, causes The OPC Server to strip all NULLs after carriage returns sent by a TELNET device. The second option, Send NULLs after CRs in binary mode, causes The OPC Server to insert NULLs after any carriage returns it sends to a TELNET device. Usually, you will set both options the same. It is not recommended to use a Telnet connection when connecting to th e Integra Setup Port.

10. DCI - OPCTR01 Integra OPC Diagnostics TECHNICAL MANUAL April 23, 2013 1 - 7  200 1 - 2013 DCI Technologies Inc. www.dcitech.com T96SR Topic: The Topic Name is the topic name used by client applications. This is the field that would be modified if you were using multi ple communications lines. Create a new topic for each communications line or base station that you need to connect to. The Description field provides a comment for documentation purposes. It has no impact on how the OPC Server operates. The Update Inter val is the number of milliseconds between the times that The OPC Server polls for data from a device for a topic. This is pertinent only for topics with protocols with read messages. If the amount of time required to read data from all topics on a device e xceeds a topic’s update interval, The OPC Server immediately restarts its polling of the topic. If the amount of time is less than the update interval, the OPC Server delays polling the topic for an appropriate period of time. This field is not used in th e Integra Diagnostics so leaving it set to 1000 is fine. The Write Delay is the number of milliseconds that the OPC Server waits before sending a message to a device. This is useful if a device needs a “rest period” between transmissions. For the Integra a delay of 0, or no milliseconds is sufficient. The Topic Variable is an optional value, such as a station address, assigned to the topic. Its value depends on the assigned protocol. The topic variable is used to populate and verify the topic variable seque nce in a message. The Integra and T96SR protocol s do not require the topic variable; you can leave this blank.

9. DCI - OPCTR01 Integra OPC Diagnostics TECHNICAL MANUAL April 23, 2013 1 - 6  200 1 - 2013 DCI Technologies Inc. www.dcitech.com 1.3.3 Connect to EXCEL An other easy way to test if things are working correctly with the Integra - TR radio diagnostics is to use the demo Excel spreadsheet program that was provided on the DCI Technologies Installation CD. A sample spreadsheet called “Integra DDE Diagnostics Ver270.xls” has been included to enable you to get some data back i nto Excel from the OPC server. 1.4 Configuring Multiple Device Connection s 1.4.1 Define Topics A topic in the OPC Server is used by client applications to identify groupings of diagnostics data. In the previous screenshot the Topic Name would be “IntegraDiag”. This is the default name that the OPC server uses for the Integra Diagno stics. You can see it listed under the “OPClient1” object in the left pane of the previous window. If you are running multiple radio hub sites and want to gather diagnostics data from more than one hub you will need to create a new topic for each one. Th is is done by stopping the OPC server (click the red traffic light) and then from the menu select “Configure” and click on “Topics”. You will then be presented with a list of current “Topics” and you can choose to modify or create a new one. Once you ha ve made your selecti on the Topic Definition Dialog will allow the specification of a topic. Integra - TR Topic:

The corresponding dropdown list assign s the protocol and dev ices to the Topic. In both cases, The OPC Server presents a list of choices. You can choose only one protocol. Click on “INTEGRA” for the Ca lamp/ D ataradio Integra family of radio modems or T96SR for the DATARADIO T96SR radio modems. 1.4.2.2 Com Port The “Devices ” button will display the following screen: The Com Port Configuration dialog shows the setting of the currently selected Com Port. The s ettings for the Integra Diagnostics is 9600 Baud, 8 data bits, No parity and 1 stop bit as shown in the following screen shot. Flow control should be set to none.

12. DCI - OPCTR01 Integra OPC Diagnostics TECHNICAL MANUAL April 23, 2013 1 - 9  200 1 - 2013 DCI Technologies Inc. www.dcitech.com 1.4.2.3 TCP/IP Socket The Winsock Device Configuration dialog shows the selected TCP/IP connection . Type specifies the TCP/IP protocol to use. This must match the protocol used by the target device. The choices are UDP, TCP, and TELNET. Address is the network address of the device. The address may either be the TCP/IP dot address, such as 100.101.10 2.103, or a host name, as defined by the localhosts file or DNS. The OPC Server validates the address at runtime. You can also validate the address using the Ping button. Port is the TCP/IP port number of the software in the network device. This port numbe r identifies a software service to TCP/IP. The OPC Server communicates with this software agent in the network device. If Inbound connection is not checked, you must enter that software’s port number in this field. If Accept data from any port is checked, this field is disabled. Listen Port identifies the OPC Server’s TCP/IP port number. This is required for when using the UDP protocol or for inbound TCP and TELNET connections. Different Winsock devices can use the same listen port. The OPC Server checks wh ere a message came from to determine which device actually sent it. See Accept data from any port for details. Reply Timeout is the amount of time that the OPC Server waits for a reply to a message it has sent a device. This time is in milliseconds. If no response is received within the timeout period, The OPC Server retransmits its message. If another timeout occurs, The OPC Server tries for a third a final time. If there is no response to the third message, The OPC Server declares a communication failure for the device.

17. DCI - OPCTR01 Integra OPC Diagnostics TECHNICAL MANUAL April 23, 2013 3 - 4  200 1 - 2013 DCI Technologies Inc. www.dcitech.com 3. System Overview Easy to use. The OPC Server uses only dialogs so you can use it yourself. You no longer need the specialists required for other OPC servers. Single interface. You now can focus all your attention on your I/O devices instead of learning the client application interface. The OPC Server is capable of being the single server for a variety of different client applications. Simplifies Tasks. Many toolkits require you to handle the background tasks for scheduling and data st orage. The OPC server does all this for you plus it is a browsable server so you can concentrate on what you want to do with the data instead of the protocol itself. Runtime and Developer Versions. You can choose your level of involvement from purchasin g a bundled runtime syste m for the Integra - TR or T96 SR radios right up to a full developer version that allows you to completely modify decoding schemes and data members. DCI also provides programming support, including custom error detection schemes and i nterfaces to other communication devices and client applications.

DCI - OPCTR01 Integra OPC Diagnostics TECHNICAL MANUAL April 23, 2013 1 - 2  200 1 - 2013 DCI Technologies Inc. www.dcitech.com 1.2 Getting Started with the OPC Server 1.2.1 Configure your R adio Addressing The Integra and T96SR Radio’s have a short ID number that is configurable; this number can range from 1 to 254 (up to 1023 on the T96SR’s) Each radio in a particular cell must have a unique Short ID if you want to effectively utilize the d iagnostics capability. To get started make sure that you have your test radios configured for a short ID of 100 and 101. Refer to the DATARADIO INTEGRA or T96SR Service manual for details on how to do this. 1.2.2 Connect your Radio to the OPC Server Using a st raight through serial cable (DB9F to DB9M) connect the “SETUP” port of one Integra to the COM 1 port on the computer that has the OPC server installed. If COM 1 is not available, then you will need to refer to the section Configuring Multiple Device Conne ctions in order to redirect the connection to the appropriate COM port or TCP/IP socket on a terminal server. 1.2.3 Start up the OPC Server Using the Windows “START” Menu look under “ ALL PROGRAMS”, then ‘SOFTWARE TOOLBOX”, then “ OMNISERVER ” and then select “OMNI SERVER CONFIGURATION” . This will start up the OPC server and present a the configuration screen. On this interface you can configure your specific communications ports and other settings required by your specific implementation.
