The PVSS-DIM toolkit allows to interface PVSS to devices which do not provide any of PVSS's supported protocols (such as OPC). DIM is a communication mechanism running on several platforms. PVSS can behave as a DIM Client (i.e. receive information from or send commands to DIM servers) or as a DIM Server (i.e. send information to or receive commands from DIM clients). Please read the PVSS-DIM manual for detailed information.
The PVSS-DIM toolkit provides a bridge between PVSS datapoints (either full structures or single items) and DIM services. PVSS communicates with DIM via a PVSS-DIM Api Manager: PVSS00dim. PVSS00dim can be configured either via a configuration file or via a configuration datapoint. A library can be used to manipulate the configuration datapoint. A visualization/configuration panel is also available.
WinCCOA 3.15 (Windows or Linux)
(Older versions: PVSS 3.8, WinCCOA 3.11, WinCCOA 3.11 SP1)
The Distribution kit contains the PVSS-DIM tools (Api Manager, panels, script library, etc.) and a pre-configured example (no need to install DIM separately).
