Integration Different Kinds of PLC

Project Introduction:

Generally, MIS department exists in well-established company to collect instrument operating data to analyze the data and give report, also, of course to write PC program. Data collection is always an annoying trouble for most MIS engineers because all the programs are designed with different programming languages. Now, with the help of OPC Server, all the problems mentioned above can be solved easily rising the efficiency. OPCTechs Technology Corp. provides OPC Server for most popular PLC. Programs written by different programming languages could also communicate through Data Exchange OPC Server.

System Requirement:

  • VB programming language

  • VB.NET programming language

  • OPCTechs Panasonic Serial OPC Server

  • OPCTechs DataExchange OPC Server

  • OPCTechs Yokogawa Serial OPC Server
  • OPCTechs Yokogawa Ethernet OPC Server

  • OPCTechs Koyo Serial OPC Server

  • OPCTechs Fuji Serial OPC Server

  • N-Port

  • System Diagram:


    OPCTechs OPC Server support part of popular devices, such as all series of Melsec PLC, Omron PLC and AB PLC. Moreover, we also provide well organized structure of OPC Server and Client, so all the monitoring program and self-developed program could be integrated with each other easily. Time for developing Driver program could be saved.
