The OW-SERVER is an inexpensive Ethernet to 1-Wire interface that is designed to efficiently monitor and control 1-Wire devices. The OW-SERVER will allow you to use industry standard Ethernet products (switches, hubs, etc.) to build the backbone of your 1-Wire based sensor / control system. This provides several important benefits: First, 1-Wire networks can be easily distributed over great distances without having to deal with the challenges associated with the installation of physically large 1-Wire networks. By distributing the 1-Wire networks, the individual 1-Wire MicroLans can be kept to a smaller physical size, thereby improving responsiveness/reliability and decreasing installation costs. Second, since the OW-SERVER communicates over standard Ethernet, you can take advantage of existing corporate LANs, the Internet, and in-house MIS expertise for building out and maintaining the backbone of your sensor network.
The OW-SERVER has been designed in such a way to minimize the amount of network resources needed to monitor 1-Wire devices. It maintains the latest readings of its 1-Wire devices which are updated every 2 seconds. This enables the OW-SERVER to deliver a current reading without waiting for a time intensive temperature conversion (or other conversion) to be performed. Also, the OW-SERVER is designed to push data when a user defined alarm occurs via SNMP traps. This significantly reduces the necessary polling rate for many applications while still supplying assurance that any problem will be detected in a timely manner.
The OW-SERVER is ideal for many applications which include:
• Server Room Monitoring
• SCADA Systems
A number of Ethernet protocols are used by the OW-Server including HTTP and SNMP. The HTTP interface is a simple webpage which shows the current overview of each connected sensor. By default, this page uses AJAX t…
