NI OPC Servers
Software for Interfacing to Industrial Automation Devices
- Works with LabVIEW and LabVIEW DSC OPC Classic and OPC UA clients
- Single consistent interface for both OPC Classic and OPC UA
- Execute multiple protocol driver plug-ins within a single OPC server
- Includes drivers for PLCs ranging from serial-based legacy PLCs to the latest Ethernet-based PLCs
- OPC diagnostics for quick debugging
The NI OPC Servers bridge converts proprietary industrial protocols to the open OPC Classic and OPC Unified Architecture (UA) protocols. This conversion to OPC then enables NI LabVIEW software to communicate to many different programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and third-party devices through the OPC Client that is included with the LabVIEW Datalogging and Supervisory Control (DSC) Module. The combination of NI OPC Servers and LabVIEW provides a single platform for delivering high-performance measurements and control to industrial systems. View a list of the protocol drivers included with NI OPC Servers under the Resources tab.
There are two licensing schemes for NI OPC Servers:
1 Simultaneous Driver Usage: License allows connection to one driver at a time on the computer hosting the NI OPC Servers.
Unlimited Simultaneous Driver Usage: License allows connection to an unlimited number of drivers simultaneously on the computer hosting the NI OPC Servers.
