DataHub OPC Gateway

OPC Gateway Diagram

The DataHub OPC Gateway™ converts real-time, streaming OPC UA data to DA or vice-versa. Using the Gateway, you can connect any OPC DA server or client to any OPC UA server or client, locally or over the plant network.

You can

  •  Connect OPC UA systems to OPC DA (Classic) systems.
    •  Enable OPC DA clients to read from OPC UA servers.
    •  Enable OPC UA clients to read from OPC DA servers.
  •  Tunnel OPC UA more easily.

Unique Advantages

  • Includes both client and server interface for both UA and DA.
  • Maintains the OPC UA data model, while other gateways flatten it.
  • Automatic OPC DA – UA and UA – DA protocol conversions built-in.
  • Automatically discovers all the points from the server.
  • Eliminates cache latency and stale data, so you always know the data quality and have the most current value.
  • Multi-threaded interface means that a slow or non-responsive server will not slow down other connections.

Included Features

  • OPC DA support – connect to OPC DA servers and clients.
  • OPC UA support – connect to OPC UA servers and clients.
  • Data aggregation – merge data from multiple sources into a common data set.
  • Secure Remote Configuration Tool – configure a network of DataHub installations from a single location.
  • QuickTrend – view live, real-time trends for selected data.
  • Scripting – program custom solutions to meet your specific needs.
  • Security – control access and set permissions for users and groups.
