Network OPC DA without DCOM or exposing your network
Do you need to collect OPC data from multiple remote locations, or connect to OPC DA servers on a different network? Now you can, easily and securely, without the hassles of DCOM, using the DataHub DA Tunneller. Detect network breaks in milliseconds, and recover from them smoothly, without breaking the OPC client connection. Reduce network bandwidth and licensing costs using a single tunnel connection to connect multiple OPC servers and clients.
Other add-on features for the DataHub DA Tunneller include DDE/Excel Support for connecting to Excel spreadsheets and other DDE servers, Email/SMS Notification to receive an email or SMS message based on data changes, Data Historian to store and retrieve large volumes of data at high speeds, Data Redundancy to do hot standby switching between identical data sources, and Camera to stream live video or images of your system.
“For us, this OPC tunnel is very good, because we only need to open one port, and we are secure from DCOM break-ins. We are considering installing this same solution in our top plants.”
