What it does
  • Logs OPC UA or OPC DA (Classic) data to any database.
  • Stores data during network failures, and forwards it to the database in time-sequential order when reconnected.
  • Writes from the database back to the OPC server, to change set points, send recipes, etc.
  • Starts and stops logging or queries using fully customizable trigger events and conditions
  • Automatic OPC ↔ ODBC protocol conversion built-in.
  • Connect to any ODBC database (SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, Pi, etc.).
  • Connect to any existing table in the database, or create a new table within the database.
  • Easy to use graphical configuration and sophisticated scripting language for complex operations.

The built-in Store and Forward feature ensures that your data gets logged even during bursts of activity or network breaks. Fully customizable conditional triggering lets you log the data you need based on a tag change or a timer.
