OPC Server for Modbus
The latest release of the Modbus OPC Server provides secure and reliable real-time data access between all Modbus devices and any OPC-enabled applications such as Historians, HMIs, and SCADA, etc.
The software provides users with an optimized workflow making configuration and maintenance faster and more intuitive. It features built-in role-based security down to the per- tag-level to actively protect the integrity of automation system data. Based on each user's login, it selectively grants or denies access to specific tags, providing only the right users with secure access to the right process data. Granular control over data access helps prevent accidental or intentional unauthorized OPC data access. As a part of the overall infrastructure, it adds another layer to a system's overall defense-in-depth strategy. Key features include redundant device communications, precise control over who can access what data via role-based security and support for OPC Alarms and Events. Other features include an updated graphical user interface, support for the company's HC 900 line of hybrid controllers, channel level redundancy, an advanced calculation engine, device exploration: automatic OPC tag generation and support for the OPC Security 1.0 specification.
