This product bulletin discusses the services available from MYNAH to assist with the application of VIM2 hardware with MYNAH Industrial Ethernet Drivers for successful third party device integration into DeltaV.
MYNAH Industrial Ethernet Drivers operating on DeltaV Virtual IO Modules 2 (VIM2) provide a native DeltaV IO interface to Industrial Ethernet networks and devices implementing the Modbus TCP/IP, EtherNet/IP, FMC722, or PROFINET protocol. With these protocols, DeltaV controllers can utilize high-speed Industrial Ethernet networks to communicate with plant floor devices such as programmable logic controllers (PLCs), motor control centers (MCCs), and weigh scales. Additional details are available in the product bulletin for the DeltaV Virtual IO Module Network Gateway.
There are only a few hardware and software components involved, but integration of existing devices on Industrial Ethernet networks into DeltaV can be complex, as it requires expertise across all aspects of the system. Taking the time to properly understand the entire system has been proven to be a valuable effort for both new system integration and expansion of existing systems. While often overlooked, the integration of PLCs, MCCs, and other third party IO devices can take significant time during any one of the six project phases described below. To reduce the time it takes to interface these devices into DeltaV, we have created services to simplify the integration of third party IO devices into DeltaV using the VIM2.
To successfully integrate a third party IO device, these are the best practices one must take into account. The simplified integration goes through six phases which allow for agile execution by distributing focus and expertise. An in-depth explanation of the six phases can be found in the DeltaV Industrial Ethernet Integration best practices article.
VIM2 Driver Software Support Service allows DeltaV users to continually maximize their financial return for a fraction of the cost of their initial investment. Additional details are available in the VIM2 Driver Software Support Service article.
When utilizing MYNAH's VIM2 consulting services, all aspects of Industrial Ethernet integration are taken into consideration, and the right individuals are brought together to create a complete and documented solution. MYNAH's Application Engineering and Product Development teams provide consulting services to assist DeltaV users with the successful implementation of Industrial Ethernet integration projects. The best results are achieved by following a proven process-to-assist during the Design of the system. When properly completed, the Design can be used to create the full implementation of the system with minimal consulting engagements.
The MYNAH Application Engineer reviews the scope, constraints, assumptions, new methods, and uncertainties. The MYNAH Engineer takes stock of all of the project input data received early on, and proceeds to initiate the consulting efforts. During the consulting, the MYNAH Engineer can generate configuration and documentation based on the services identified below.
The MYNAH Engineer reviews the scope, constraints, assumptions, new methods, and uncertainties, and begins assembling the project team. When the project team mobilizes and the project kicks off, usually existing input data items can be made available quickly. The MYNAH technical lead takes stock of all of the project input data received early on, and works out the conceptual design architecture and key technical details. During the development effort the MYNAH Engineer will work towards set deliverables as indicated below.

MYNAH Technologies offers two types of training courses to help you apply Industrial Ethernet expertise and strengthen your competencies in VIM2 Integration. In these courses, MYNAH Application Engineers use real-world examples to help implement the VIM2 to your specific needs. You will be equipped to realize the full capabilities and achieve understanding of all aspects of VIM2 Industrial Ethernet device integration.
The VIM2 product exposure course is offered at MYNAH Technologies in Chesterfield, MO, USA, while a custom course can be conducted on premise. More information on MYNAH's training courses can be found on the Industrial Ethernet with DeltaV VIM2 Training webpage.
