What we did together?
dataZen OPC Server
We developed a software program which converts the communication protocol used by a PLC into the OPC protocol. OPC is implemented in client/server pairs. The OPC client software is any program that needs to connect to the OPC Server. The OPC client uses the OPC server to get data from or send commands to the control. The goal of the OPC specification is to provide an open, flexible, plug-and-play software standard for software interoperability. This is a custom-engineered dataZen OPC Server application that allows communication with modern CNC machines to get data from or send commands to the control. Additionally, data collection with high baud rates were achieved for things like machine chuck open or chuck closed and measuring metal temperatures for the machining operations.
