Cyberlogic, based in Troy, Mich., announces that the company’s year-old DevNet program has delivered in excess of US $2.8 million in free server software to OPC users worldwide. “The interest in our DevNet program has been remarkable,” says Dan Muller, the Director of the Cyberlogic Developer Network. “The users are definitely recognizing the value DevNet program is delivering and they are telling us that Cyberlogic has addressed an important need for systems integrators”.

Cyberlogic, a leading supplier of OPC software, announced last year a new program to ship free OPC servers and communication drivers to developers. The program, called the Cyberlogic Developer Network, or DevNet, allows each person with a DevNet license to use the software that is included in the DevNet program for development, test, support and demonstration purposes. According to Cyberlogic, systems integrators, automation and controls engineers, Information Techololgy (IT) professionals, distributors, educators and consultants are joining the company’s DevNet program to take advantage of the free software offer.

“We know that developers have unique needs,” says Muller. “So we offer special activation privileges for DevNet subscribers.” Each DevNet subscription product key can be used to activate software multiple times. This allows the user to have separate development, test and support computers without the need to purchase additional software licenses. Active DevNet subscribers receive new product activation keys and updated software automatically and all DevNet subscribers have full access to free tech support from Cyberlogic.

The DevNet licenses are for full-featured, retail versions of the software, but they are not intended to be used in continuous production. A DevNet license may not be used as a substitute for purchasing a runtime license if users do more than develop and test on their computers.

Simple to sign-up

The Cyberlogic DevNet program is offered worldwide, and qualified developers can apply for a DevNet subscription at Cyberlogic’s website. “The process is really simple,” continues Muller. “It takes only one minute to sign-up and it’s free.”

Cyberlogic is a leading independent supplier of OPC Servers and industrial communication software with more than 100,000 copies shipped to 130 countries. The Cyberlogic OPC Server Suites are integrated, all-in-one products with built-in reliability features to allow the configuration of an unlimited number of redundant networks and redundant data sources. Cyberlogic’s OPC Servers include a Health Monitor that continuously verifies the operation of each network and data source, 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 Server 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.
