What is an OPC Server
OPC Servers are hardware drivers that are written to a common standard, OPC or "OLE for Process Control". OPC compliant programs (OPC Clients) for HMI, SCADA, DAS, etc. are available from NEWPORT, trodeks, Wonderware, Iconics, Intellution, Rockwell Automation, and National Instruments, among others.
The trodeks® OPC Server supports a wide variety of hardware including trodeks's iSeriesTM meters, controllers and signal conditioners. Because the Server is designed to work directly with these products, setup is simple, typically taking only a few minutes. The OPC Server also supports trodeks's EIS family of Serial Servers. With a Serial Server you can connect virtually any serial device or instrument to a computer through an Ethernet connection.
Trial Version Available
A copy of the OPC Server can be downloaded from the "Related Links" section shown at the bottom of this page. An unlimited runtime version of the OPC Server Software requires purchase of a license and entry of a unique License Activation Code. Without this code, the free OPC Server program will time-out after two (2) hours. These two-hour sessions can be repeated as often as necessary to evaluate the software at no charge.
