Typical applications for the LNS DDE Server include interfaces with HMI applications, data logging and trending applications, and graphical process displays.
The LNS DDE Server will operate for a maximum of one hour at a time until you purchase an LNS DDE Server Application Key.
The LNS DDE Server is supported on the following versions of Microsoft Windows: Windows 11, Windows 10, Windows Server 2019, and Windows Server 2016.
For product documentation and more information, see the LNS DDE Server product page.
LNS DDE Server Starter Utility
The LNS DDE Starter Utility enables the controlled startup of a large set of Echelon LNS DDE Server monitor points, eliminating many of the errors and retries that can occur when many points are activated at once. You can use this utility to improve the start-up performance when starting many LNS DDE Server data points with Wonderware's InTouch WindowViewer application or other HMI applications. Systems that use large numbers of bound monitor points (over 500), that do not provide regular heart beats to refresh data values will benefit from this utility. The LNS DDE Server Starter Utility is not supported by Dialog.
