Easily exchanges data between OPC DA servers
Link Master is a fully-featured data-bridging product that is built upon Kepware Technologies’ OPC client/server technology and demonstrates unparalleled compatibility and performance. It is a multithreaded application that links data between OPC servers, and can act as an OPC-to-DDE converter for DDE Client Access.
LinkMaster has the capabilities of both a client and a server. As a client, it can access data from one or more OPC servers. As a server, it can collect, organize, and link data from other OPC servers and then offer that data to an OPC/DDE client. For example, some situations may require that data be transferred from one server component to another (or from one OPC client to another) when the two components were not designed for direct communications. LinkMaster solves this problem by acting as a universal go-between for OPC server and client components.
Configures multiple OPC servers into redundant pairs
Redundancy Master increases the reliability and availability of your OPC data by allowing multiple OPC servers to be configured into redundant pairs. Each redundant pair seamlessly appears as a single OPC server to any OPC client application. RedundancyMaster can be added to an existing client/server application without any reconfiguration of the application, keeping your processes going without any downtime.
RedundancyMaster is a drop-in application that does not require you to make any changes to your OPC client or server applications. Its intuitive configuration takes only minutes and will allow you to easily establish a redundant OPC system. Simply browse and select your primary and secondary OPC servers, and then your system is up and running.
.NET OPC toolkit
ClientAce provides a drag and-drop interface to quickly and easily attach OPC items to any property or custom control built in Visual Studio. Furthermore, its full-featured .NET API provides effortless access to OPC UA, OPC DA, and OPC XML-DA server applications without previous knowledge of the OPC standard. ClientAce provides tools to help .NET and C# programmers easily build an OPC client application. ClientAce consists of two main parts: the .NET Application Programming Interface (API) and the DA Junction. These controls have the ability to do the following:
- Perform the connection handling procedure for one or multiple OPC servers, including connection establishment, connection monitoring, and reconnection after errors.
- Convert OPC Data from different OPC DA interfaces into .NET data types.
- Provide high performance and optimized client/server communications
