Microsol has developed numerous custom
applications for performing specialized automation tasks. These applications
have been seamlessly integrated into the Workbench™ software platform,
adding capabilities and increased functionality. Some of these specialized
Time Management System
The Microsol system provides a time management system that can set primary
and backup time sources such that if one fails the processor will
synchronize to another source in a pre-defined priority order. Time sources
available with this system option are:
Unmodulated IRIG B
Network Time Protocol
Standard DNP time
Group Alarm Application
The Microsol Group Alarm Application allows users to logically "OR" alarm
points. Unlike logic programs that strip the SOE time information from the
original source; this application transfers the source time tag to the
Point Source Switching
The Microsol Source Switching Application allows users to configure up to
four sources that provide the same information and creates a pseudo point to
map to a slave. If the quality flag on a source point goes bad the
application switches to the next source in a pre-defined priority order.
Like the Group Alarm application the source point SOE time information is
transferred to the pseudo point.
Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) firmware may be added to the XCell
system. This will enable National Grid WAN Network Managers to remotely
monitor the performance and security of the RTU and alarm on potential
problems using Network Management Software.
IRIG-B application uses one of the serial ports to input an un-modulated
IRIG B time synchronization signal.
