Engine-to-Engine (E2E) Tag Exchange Module by DATA AHEAD AG A DCAF Plug-In to Simplify Tag Mapping Between Engines

  • Easily exchange tags in multi-engine DCAF applications without manual mapping
  • Select from multiple run-time transfer mechanisms
  • Source code publicly available on GitHub in the LabVIEW DCAF repository
  • Easily implement additional transfer mechanisms without worrying about tag mapping
  • Download
The Engine-to-Engine (E2E) Tag Exchange module simplifies the exchange of tags between separate distributed control and automation framework (DCAF) engines. Rather than configuring output and input channels manually using a specific I/O module to exchange tags, you can use the E2E module to handle channel configuration automatically when you select a tag to be shared between engines. The editor node of the E2E module allows you to determine the transfer mechanism for tag exchange. The transfer mechanism determines the allowable data types, the pairing depth (inner-target, inter-target, both), and other specific configuration information. The module was designed to help you create and add new transfer mechanisms. The currently implemented mechanisms are UDP and Single Element RT FIFOs.
