Software Toolbox Enhances Connectivity Software for Oil & Gas Industry Applications


TOP Server Introduces Electronic Flow Measurement, Updated Diagnostics and Additional Functionality for Midstream Applications

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Software Toolbox® today announced the release of TOP Server Version 5.9 with new applications designed for the oil and gas industry, as well as enhancements and fixes for existing communications drivers.

TOP Server Version 5.9 adds the first phase of the new Electronic Flow Measurement (EFM) Suite that enables EFM data export for midstream applications in the oil and gas industry. EFM data and analysis is important for measuring production and other metrics, as well as for reporting and compliance purposes. The first phase of the EFM plug-in provides users with the EFM Exporter Plug-In, with export capabilities for the Flow-Cal proprietary CFX file format, with future support to include Quorum PGAS, generic CSV and Flow-Cal Liquids formats. Also included in the suite are connectivity drivers for Enron Modbus and OMNI Flow Computers, with future support to include Fisher ROC and ABB Totalflow.

Top Server is Software Toolbox's OPC and native HMI device connectivity software application offering more than 130 different device drivers and plug-ins. Powered by Kepware, TOP Server 5.9 delivers new drivers as well as enhancements to the main server and many existing drivers. TOP Server has been a major communications choice for years in oil and gas downstream applications. Planned updates will focus on expanding upstream and midstream connectivity solutions to provide end-users with a comprehensive oil and gas solution.

"Our oil and gas industry clients have grown to rely on TOP Server technology for all of their communication needs due to its reliability and deep functionality," said Kevin Rutherford, brand manager at Software Toolbox. "With the addition of EFM support and the commitment to continuously expand and improve that support, our users can now integrate TOP Server industry applications and processes, from exploration and drilling to refining and distribution."

Further connectivity options are possible in the oil and gas industry with the new Wellsite Information Transfer Specification (WITS) Suite of drivers. The TOP Server WITS Suite includes both a Level 0 Passive driver and a Level 0 Active driver for flexible communications with WITS-capable wellsite equipment.

The Oil and Gas Industry Suite for TOP Server, a cost-effective option for oil and gas industry communications, will include the new OMNI Flow Computer driver, Enron Modbus driver and WITS Suite drivers, complementing an already extensive array of drivers.

Additional improvements in TOP Server Version 5.9 include:
· ProtocolDiagnostics File Persistence - Users can now configure TOP Server protocol diagnostics at both the channel and device level to automatically save to a file for future review, providing enhanced troubleshooting of device communication issues over time.
· OPC Diagnostics File Persistence - TOP Server OPC diagnostics can be set to automatically save to a file, allowing future review for troubleshooting client connectivity issues over time.
· Other Driver Updates - Expanded functionality and improvements made to the ControlLogix Ethernet, Beckhoff TwinCAT Ethernet, Bristol/IP Driver, Fisher ROC Suite, Modbus Suite drivers, Siemens TCP/IP Ethernet, UCON, and Yokogawa Suite drivers, as well as other enhancements. For full details of updates and enhancements in TOP Server V5.9, please see the release notes.
