Introduction
The Pro-face GP I/O Server is an I/O Server for Wonderware InTouch software, connecting ethernet
enabled Pro-face GP, GLC, ST and AGP Series panels through Ethernet IP (UDP) responding to data
read / write requests from an InTouch application.
For detailed information about the use of I/O Servers refer to the WonderWare InTouch documentation.
To use the Pro-face GP I/O Server InTouch 7.11 or later is required, hardware and software environment
are dictated by those required by the InTouch software version.
Installation
Installing to run the GP I/O Server as an application
1) Make sure “Factory Suite I/O Server Common Components” are installed on your system before
installing the GP I/O Server. This also applies if you plan to run the GP I/O Server on a different
(remote) PC than the PC that is running the InTouch application.
2) During installation of the common components you have to enter a Windows user account, this
user account must be the same as that used in InTouch and the same as the account under
which the GP I/O Server is installed, using different user accounts will prevent the I/O Server from
communicating to the Pro-face panel(s)
3) Install GP I/O Server by running the file “Setup.exe” in the “GP IO Server\Installer\EN\SetupEXE”
folder.
4) If you have not already done so install the InTouch software, make sure to use the same user
account that was used to install “Factory Suite I/O Server Common Components” and that was
used to install the Pro-face GP I/O Server.
Running the GP I/O Server as a Windows Service
1) Follow the installation procedure as described above.
2) After completing the installation start the GP I/O Server as an application (a shortcut is placed in
the Windows Start Menu and optionally on the Desktop)
3) Click “General Section Setting” and select “Run as Service”. The next time Windows is started the
GP I/O Server is automatically run as a Windows Service.
Changing the GP I/O Server from Windows Service to Application
Important: We strongly recommend that you back up the system registry before making any changes.
Incorrect changes to the registry could result in permanent data loss or corrupted files. Editing the
Windows registry is done at the users own risk.
To make the GP I/O Server run as application after configuration as Windows Service follow these steps:
1) Open the Services section in Control Panel / Administrative Tools

5)
Locate the GP I/O Server entry and click “Stop” to shutdown the service.
Exit the Services window
In “Start”, “Run” type “regedit” and click ok to run the Windows Registry editor.
Locate and delete the following registry keys:
• \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SOFTWARE\Wonderware \GPIOSvr_IOServer
• \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\GPIOSvr_IOServer
• \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Services\GPIOSvr_IOServer
6) After closing the registry editor reboot you PC to have the changes take effect, after rebooting the
GP I/O Server can be run as an application, it will no longer automatically start as a service.
Uninstalling the GP I/O Server
Important: If you are running the GP I/O Server as a Windows Service follow the steps described under
“Changing the GP I/O Server from Windows Service to Application” before continuing
To completely uninstall the GP I/O Server follow these steps:
1)
2)
3)
4)
Open Control Panel and open the “Add or Remove Programs” link
Locate and select the entry called “GPIOSvr”
Click Change/Remove and follow the onscreen instructions.
Reboot the PC to have the changes take effect.
Firewall Rules
The GP I/O Server is configured by default to use UDP port 8000 to communicate with Pro-face panels.
The configuration utility allows you to change the port that is used on the PC and Pro-face panels.
In either case make sure the firewall used in your system allows incoming and outgoing communication
on the selected UDP port. (the GP I/O Server uses 1 port)
Starting the GP I/O Server
To start the GP I/O Server double click the GP I/O Server icon on the computer desktop or select
GPIOSvr from the Windows Start Menu.
If the GP I/O Server is configured to run as a Windows Service it will automatically start when Windows is
started.

Enter the IP Address of the Pro-face panel for the selected Topic ID.
For details on setting up the IP Address in the offline menu on a Pro-face panel refer to the Hardware
manual for your panel. (Hardware manuals can be downloaded from: www.pro-face.com/otasuke)
Port Number
(Default: 8000)
Enter the port number of the Pro-face panel that this Topic refers to. For details on setting up the Port
Number in the offline menu on a Pro-face panel refer to the Hardware manual for your panel.
(Hardware manuals can be downloaded from: www.pro-face.com/otasuke)
Polling Cycle (msec)
(Default: 1000)
Set up the polling interval at which data is read from this Pro-face panel.
Write Mode (Delay / At Once)
(Default: At Once)
Delay:
Data written from InTouch will be stored locally (cached) until the next polling
cycle. This lowers the response time but will give higher throughput speed.
(Recommended for most applications)
At Once:
Data written from InTouch will be send to the Pro-face Panel immediately. This
gives fast response times at lower throughput speed.
Timeout (msec)
(Default: 300)
Set up the timeout for this specific Pro-face panel communication
Error Max Count
(Default: 3)
After entered number of errors (timeouts) the I/O Server starts the recovery timer for this Topic
allowing it to come back online.
Recovery Time (msec)
(Default: 6)
After the Max Error Count is exceeded the I/O Server will start the recovery timer allowing this topic to
become available again.
