PSU - Poll Sharing Unit for polling SCADA networks
Indicators (front panel)
The DCB Poll Sharing Unit has four Host ports and four Device ports and optional modem for host port backup. Each port can be set to a different speed, from 1200 to 38,400 bps (port to port speed conversion). The ports are RS232 async. RS422 port interface converters are available.
Polls coming into a Host port are sent out one or more of the four Device ports, mapped by the user on a per port basis. For example, polls coming in Host port 1 may be mapped to all 4 Device ports, while on Host ports 2, 3 and 4, data is mapped to a single Device port.
The Poll Sharing Unit has a per Host port poll timeout and a per Host port inter-message timeout. Polling data coming in a Host port is sent to the selected Device port(s). Any polls coming in on other Host ports are buffered until the first poll out is answered or after the poll timeout expires. Only one Host port at a time may send a poll out a Device port.
Another method of selecting ports is using RTS/CTS RS-232 control leads on the Host ports. The PSU constantly scans all ports for Request to Send (RTS). When RTS is asserted on the Host port, the Poll Sharing Unit returns CTS to the host computer, allowing it to send out a poll. The poll is sent out the mapped Device ports. No other Host computer port will get CTS from the Poll Sharing Unit until the first Host port gets a poll response back from a Device port, or the poll timeout expires.
