DataHub OPC Bridge

Bridge Data between OPC Servers

The DataHub® OPC Bridge™ lets you connect OPC servers, so that a change in one piece of equipment can be communicated directly to another. You can scale or modify your data as it passes through the DataHub, and define more complex relationships with the built-in Scripting language. Connect several OPC servers and clients to create a common data set, and the multi-threaded interface means that a slow or non-responsive server will not slow down any other connections.

  • Consolidates data from other systems and bridge to OPC servers.
  • Also enables OPC client-to-client bridges.
  • Versions for both OPC UA and OPC DA (Classic).
  • Connect multiple servers and clients in a single, unified data set.
  • Can perform transformations on the data (e.g. convert degrees F to C).
  • Use with tunnelling for networked bridging.
