Techs of the Week

A toolkit facilitates quick development of Honeywell Communications Interface (HCI) and OPC-compliant servers. The kit includes a time-out indicator (TOI) feature to overcome situations wherein real-time process control systems become suspended indefinitely or for long time periods. An intermediary object between the client and the resource returns control to the client, if the request is not completed within a predetermined time. The toolkit also reduces server development time through dynamically linked libraries (DLLs). Click here for more info.
