  • Publication number: 20210356944
    Abstract: Embodiments of system and methods for providing centralized management of a software defined automation (“SDA”) system are disclosed. The SDA system comprises of a collection of controller nodes and logically centralized and yet physically distributed collection of compute nodes by monitoring activities of the compute nodes. In accordance with some embodiments, one or more components of the system monitor execution, network and security environments of the system to detect an event in a first environment. In response to the detected event, at least one component in the first environment is remediated, the remediation of the first environment creating a trigger to cause remediation of at least one component in each of a second and third environments.

  • Patent number: 11157434
    Abstract: A method for deploying a service in a cluster of Input/Output devices comprising several I/O devices comprising a container engine. The method can be performed via a container client. A stack file is obtained that identifies at least one service and specifies at least one device constraint. Then, a command is sent based on the stack file, to deploy a service on a container stack of at least one first I/O device among the IO devices of the cluster if the at least one first I/O device matches the device constraint.

  • Patent number: 10845786
    Abstract: Embodiments of a software defined automation (SDA) system that provides a reference architecture for designing, managing and maintaining a highly available, scalable and flexible automation system. A method is disclosed for arranging workloads in an SDA system including determining tasks of predetermined device functions, assessing industrial operational parameters for each task of the device functions; and ranking the tasks by the industrial operational parameters. The method continues by distributing tasks over automation devices based on the industrial operational parameters.

  • Publication number: 20180024537
    Abstract: Embodiments of a software defined automation system that provides a reference architecture for designing, managing and maintaining a highly available, scalable and flexible automation system. In some embodiments, an SDA system can include a localized subsystem including a system controller node and multiple compute nodes. The multiple compute nodes can be communicatively coupled to the system controller node via a first communication network. The system controller node can manage the multiple compute nodes and virtualization of a control system on a compute node via the first communication network. The virtualized control system includes virtualized control system elements connected to a virtual network that is connected to a second communication network to enable the virtualized control system elements to control a physical control system element via the second communication network connected to the virtual network.

  • Patent number: 6564242
    Abstract: A distributed automation system comprising a programmable logic controller connected to programmable logic controllers equipped with a host unit and couplers communicating with the host unit through the back panel bus. One of the couplers is connected through a bus to associated equipment, wherein the coupler can communicate with the associated equipment through a server function using the TCP/IP protocol. The server coupler is provided with a mass memory containing (1) “PLC variables” type software objects that manage access to PLC variables, and (2) “manufacturer” type software objects that transform information from PLC variable objects to manufacturer-type information that can be used by the associated equipment.
