Display and print time scales Data format Protocol used for Recorder Communications
From 3.5 ms/cm to 1.15 month/cm Honeywell proprietary binary encryption
TrendServer Software utilizes the Honeywell Trendbus communication protocol for real time network communications with the V5 recorders. The X Series recorders use the Modbus protocol only.
The Comms Server is a MODBUS master. It has no slave capability. The maximum speed of data transfer over MODBUS is 1 (one) reading per second. The maximum speed of data logging of realtime MODBUS data is 1 (one) reading per second.
Optional OPC Server broadcasting, for each pen: Current Value; Engineering units; Zero; span; High EU; low EU; for communication with HMI software that supports an OPC Client V2.
For Honeywell recorders connected in Real-time mode with Trendbus, every 5 min- utes for V5 recorders; For FTP transfer, at the end of each scheduled download. The recorders clocks are synchronised to the PC clock.
