One utility asked us if multiple FDRs can stream data to a same port of the server. Now I’m trying to receive multiple FDRs’ data from the same port with OpenHistorian. I’m wondering if OpenPDC and OpenHistorian is capable of doing this, receiving and parsing data of multiple FDRs / PMUs from the same port? And what if the multiple FDRs / PMUs are using different protocols, such as FNET and C37?
Here are some details what I’m doing. 2 FDRs (1463 and 1464) are streaming to the same port of the server, and I added the 2 FDRs to OpenHistorian using new device wizard and PMU connection testor. If I enabled both of the 2 FDRs in openHistorian manager, the openHistorian service can’t start. I have to disable the FDRs, start the service, then enable the FDRs one by one. The the console shows the error message as below: “Only one usage of each socket address is normally permitted…”.
But when I checked the real-time measurements, the GUI of openHistorian manager shows receiving data from both of the two FDRs. However, the data percentage is very poor and it seems the 2 FDRs data never refreshed at the same time. It looks like the 2 FDRs alternativly occupied the port to get socket connection and only 1 connection can exist.
Any information is appreciate!
