Cyberlogic has released 64-bit versions of the company’s OPC server suites that deliver an easy migration path for users moving to x64 Windows platforms. The 64-bit versions of Cyberlogic OPC suites provide native 64-bit support, including 64-bit kernel-mode device drivers, for all x64 Windows operating systems, including XP, Vista, Server 2003, and Server 2008.

As the shift toward 64-bit systems is speeding up, there is a growing demand for the 64-bit versions of popular software tools. Complicating the picture is the fact that some of the new 64-bit systems may have to be deployed in existing environments, either as replacements or for expansion.

With the addition of the new 64-bit kernel mode device drivers to Cyberlogic’s OPC server suites, users can now deploy 64-bit systems, regardless of the type of network or network adapter used in their installations. In fact, a mixture of the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the company’s OPC products can be deployed in distributed environments with 100% compatibility and interoperability.

Cyberlogic’s DHX and MBX OPC server suites come with the required device drivers for all Allen-Bradley and Modicon networks and PLCs, and with this release, Cyberlogic is shipping both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the software on the same product disc. The users do not need to specify which version to purchase, or even which to install. During installation, the operating system is automatically detected and the required version of the software is installed.

The download versions of the 32-bit and 64-bit software are available separately on the company’s website to offer smaller file sizes for download. All Cyberlogic products can be downloaded for a free trial at www.cyberlogic.com, and users should select either a 32-bit or a 64-bit version of the software to download.

Cyberlogic OPC Products are "Certified for Compliance" by the OPC Foundation’s independent certification test lab for a range of tests that cover compliance and interoperability testing, load and performance testing, stress testing, white box testing, behavior testing, and environment and usability testing.

Products are awarded the “Compliance Certified” status when all interfaces they support have passed all of the independent lab tests. Cyberlogic became the first company to receive the OPC Foundation’s valuable “Certified” status, and Cyberlogic’s DHX, MBX, and OPC Crosslink Suites are the first OPC products authorized to carry the OPC Foundation's “Certified” logo.

Cyberlogic OPC Server Suites are integrated, all-in-one products. Their built-in reliability features allow the configuration of an unlimited number of redundant OPC servers, redundant networks and redundant devices. Cyberlogic’s Universal OPC Server includes a Health Monitor that continuously verifies the operation of each OPC server, network and device, automatically switching to backups when there is a problem. The built-in unsolicited messaging feature allows the configuration of an unlimited number of nodes that can initiate unsolicited data transmission, eliminating the need for polling for data.

All components of Cyberlogic OPC Suites are developed by Cyberlogic, and all required device drivers are integrated into the Suites. The products do not require any third-party add-ons.
