    Important Note

    This release is part of a "synchronised" release. This means you must update Toolkit to version 1.11 at the same time as updating to C-Bus OPC Server 1.3.

    Please note: Clipsal Integrated Systems have released this update to address a customer issue. Customers should ensure that they use this version and update any installed software to this version when possible.

    • C-Gate connection requirements updated, for Toolkit 1.11 compatibility.
    • If a network remains not operational for more than about 90 seconds, OPC requests that C-Gate perform a sync. This is designed to have the network back online as soon as possible.
    • Writing to the Trigger Control and Enable Control applications with a network in error state caused some problems. This has been fixed.

    Known Issue
    • Synchronous OPC writes may not complete, particularly when networks are in error state.

    The C-Bus OPC Server provides a gateway between C-Bus and the OPC Data Access protocols. OPC is a broadly supported communications standard supported by many Building Management Systems and a large selection of general automation applications.

    OPC Clients can be used to provide a User Interface to C-Bus (Like HomeGate) as well as sophisticated alarms, event management, data logging and trending.

    OPC Servers can also be linked together using third party tools to bridge C-Bus to hundreds of other protocols like modbus and bacnet as well as most PLC's.

    The C-Bus OPC Server is specifically designed for high availability in large commercial installations, but is equally suited for small projects where specific requirements are not met by existing C-Bus products.
