Connecting Schneider Electric’s BMS with Datacenter Infrastructure Management System (DCIM) using OPC technology
When the system integrator decided to use a 3rd party DCIM system, he needed to find a scalable solution to allow sharing between EcoStruxure™ Building Operation and the DCIM system.
The datacenter had previously been equipped with EcoStruxure’s building management solution: EcoStruxure™ Building Operation (EBO), so the system integrator was able to leverage the Smart Connector framework to make the third-party DCIM system interface seamlessly with EBO using OPC Protocol.
The server the SI chose was Control See’s OPC Server for Building Operations. It was configured to receive EBO values in real-time into their DCIM system.
The OPC server for Building Operations discovers all EBO and connected controllers’ points and allows any 3rd party OPC UA or DA client software to browse and select any point that is required by the 3rd party system. EBO Values are pushed to the OPC client software on change. This guarantees high performance of the OPC server and the EBO system.
By using Control See’s pre-validated EBO-OPC Server for Building Operations – which utilizes Schneider Electric’s SmartConnector System – both the datacenter and the system integrator benefited from:
- A fast engineering & implementation phase
- A reliable interface between EBO and any OPC-enabled system.
- A scalable solution means to easily connect hundreds of EBO values into the DCIM system.
