Product description

In EKS applications in the PLC world, in most cases these days there is no data comparison with a central database or retrieval of data from a central database. This means that data are almost always read from the Electronic-Key decentrally and then further processed individually in the PLC. Therefore, the Electronic-Key exclusively transports the access information in this case. Many EKS operators would like to implement data comparison from the PLC world with EKM data in the PC world. The main topic is the desire to disable Electronic-Keys centrally and possibly to retrieve additional data. The content of the Electronic-Key-Manager EKM database is exported to a universal file in the CSV format in the PC environment. In this EKM CSV export file, it is possible to evaluate a disable code after the serial number (KeyID) of the Electronic-Key: this code is set to the value '1' as soon as the Electronic-Key is disabled. Other data elements assigned to the Electronic-Key’s serial number can be retrieved as well. These data elements differ for specific applications. If an Electronic-Key is placed in the Electronic-Key adapter, a query is sent by the EKS Data Service PLC to the EKS Data Service PC. Based on the KeyID, the EKS Data Service PC searches for the entry in the EKM CSV export file and sends the data back to the EKS Data Service PLC. There, the data are available to the user for further processing. Furthermore, the data queried are saved in a backup cache. Should the connection to the PC fail, the data for Electronic-Keys placed previously are read from the backup strategy cache. The backup strategy cache contains as a maximum the data on the last 100 Electronic-Keys (size of the backup cache can be customized).
