About Advanced OPC Data Logger
OPC (OLE for Process Control) is a set of universally accepted specifications providing a universal data exchange mechanism in control and management systems. The OPC technology ensures that consumers are independent of the availability of unavailability of drivers or protocols, which makes it possible to choose hardware and software that most completely meets business requirements.
There are two components defined for data exchange in the OPC specification – an OPC client and an OPC server.
An OPC server is a program receiving data in the internal format of a device or a system and converting this data into the OPC format. An OPC server is a source of data for OPC clients.
An OPC client is a program receiving data in the OPC format from OPC servers and converting it into the internal format of a device or a system.
An OPC client interacts with an OPC server using interfaces strictly defined in the specification, which allows any OPC client interact with any OPC server. An OPC server created once allows the device to be connected to a wide range of software (SCADA systems, HMI, etc.) supporting the OPC specification.
The following specifications are currently the most widespread ones:
The program is designed to send/receive data between an OPC server and the program. Data exchange is carried out by server groups and their items specified in the configuration. After data is received, it is processed and grouped depending on the specified configuration and is sent for future processing and export.
Advanced OPC Data Logger custom processes the data to your needs, aggregates and writes real-time data to a text or binary file, MSSQL, MySQL, Access, Oracle or ODBC compatible database, DDE, Excel or to other targets.
What problems can be solved with Advanced OPC Data Logger?
The program creates "a bridge" between OPC servers and databases, Excel and other applications. Our OPC Data Logger is a advanced data collection system that will connect to any industry standard OPC Server and export data as you want. The program can be integrated to your control system and/or work together with your SCADA software.
