OPC Data Access Server Type 7131

OPC (OLE for Process Control) is a communication standard based on OLE/DCOM technology. This technology is used by Microsoft® and others to exchange data between individual software application programs. The DCOM-standard permits cooperative processes between completely independently developed software programs and is independent of the program language. The DCOM standard can be seen as a software bus that allows a “Plug ’n Play” function between different software products.

OPC itself stands for the specification of a standard. This standard describes the objects and interfaces which any OPC-server must possess to support communication with any hardware and software.

The S OPC Data Access Server is an OPC-server which allows any OPC-client to process the data from a VIBROCONTROL 6000® Compact monitor instrument. For example you are in a position, with the finished solution of the module “Online process visualization” in the xms® software, to visualize, via an OPC-server, measured data from SIMS on the screen of the xms® program.
