Envision Application Server (EAS)

EAS Server (Typical per Plant) (This can be virtual)

  • Processor: 2 sockets 10 core 2.7 GHz CPU

  • Memory: 32GB (Recommended 64GB)
  • Storage: 150GB (OS and Application)
  • Required Software:
    • Windows 2012 R2 64-bit Standard Server (or Windows 7+)
    • .NET 4.0
    • MongoDB Arbitrator  (Included with EAS Application)

    • Envision EAS Application Package (Beet Installer - License)

Envision Application Database Server (EAS)

Note

It is highly recommended to have two systems for redundancy, performance, and to facilitate complete backups. Only a two system deployment will be supported in a production environment.

Physical hardware is recommended, but can be virtual under certain conditions, please discuss with your account manager first.

For every 10,000 SmartTags requires:

  • Processor: 2 sockets 10 core 2.7 GHz CPU
  • Memory: 256GB ; Storage Throughput: 15,000 IOPs
  • Network: Two (2) Ethernet Interfaces
    • Connection to Corporate Network (Typically WAN) - Envision Web Application
    • Connection to EDCs  (Typically on Plant / Production Network / Non-Controls)
  • Storage Sizing = A * (3600 / B) * C * D * 2000  (Sizing Excel Calculator)

      • Storage Sizing = 5000 * (3600/6) * 8 * 30 * 700 = 504 GB
  • Software
    • Windows 2012 R2 64-Bit Standard Server
    • .Net 4.5
    • IIS Web Server 8+
    • MongoDB (Included with EAS License)


Envision Data Collector (EDC)

Every 2,500 SmartTags requires an EDC (This can be virtual)

Note

Envision Data Collectors connect via Ethernet to the PLC to collect data. A single EDC may collect data from many PLCs but please note the EDC Network Connection and PLC must be on the same subnet or have the ability to route. This could cause the need to have multiple EDCs even when total SmartTag count is below recommended limit. Any questions please contact your sales representative.

  • Memory: 8GB (Recommended 16GB)
  • Storage: 150GB
  • Network: Two (2) Ethernet Interfaces
    • Connection to PLCs (Typically on Controls Network)
    • Connection to EAS (Typically on Plant / Production Network / Non-controls)
  • Required Software:
    • Windows 2012 R2 64-bit Standard Server (or Windows 7+)
    • Kepware 5.14
    • .NET 4.0
    • MongoDB (Included with EDC Application)

    • Envision EDC Application Package (Beet Installer - License)


Envision Report Server (ETL)

For every 5,000 SmartTags requires: 

  • Processor: 2 sockets 10 core 2.7 GHz CPU

Workstation Single Cell (Proof of Concept)

Note
titleAssumptions
  • One PLC is used and workstation can be networked directly into PLC Network.
  • If multiple-PLCs exist, the following must be adhered to
    • All PLCs must be on same sub-network
    • Workstation must have access ability to be networked directly into PLC Network
    • Extra Switch may be required
