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.

There are two licensing schemes for NI OPC Servers:
