Simplify OPC Server Communication

The OPC Data Transfer is designed to help customers configure and monitor data transfers between OPC servers (local and remote), allowing different control systems to exchange information.

Though OPC software facilitates the communication between OPC clients and OPC servers, configuring server-to-server connections is frequently cumbersome due to DCOM communication and security barriers. The OPC Data Transfer overcomes this problem, enabling manufacturers using OPC technology to easily exchange information between all components of their production processes and data analyses and avoid the DCOM obstacles, says the vendor. Other features include extensive error tracking and management functions, while the ODT is also fully equipped to manage OPC server and client redundancy: When a master server or master client encounters an interruption when connecting and communicating with other parts of the system, a designated backup immediately takes over so that no data is lost.
