Nova Dubnica, Slovakia (PressExposure) April 19, 2008 -- OpcDbGateway is a software package (configurator and runtime) dedicated for automation and industrial control system or office applications integration service providers.
It can be used not only in manufacturing plants, building management systems, power stations, waste-water processing facilities, for connecting corporate and control systems, but also for integrating data from various sources in office applications.
OpcDbGateway enables data acquisition from external devices (sensors, actuators, PLC...), data processing, data storage in process databases and files, delivery of processed data to other applications. The functionality is based on parallel event data processing, periodical or single-shot launching of external programs and scripts at specified time. It allows building of simple or complex applications for data mining and processing, logging, alarms, generating printed reports, control and monitoring of processes in a user-friendly and easy way. Data preprocessed by OpcDbGateway can be accessed using web services and by applications with in-built OPC client. There is also "Historic Trends Wizard". This wizard will guide you through the creation of a new Historic Trend.
The new version of OpcDbGateway 3.11.00 provides the possibility of connecting external DLL and thus significantly expands the flexibility and usage possibilities. A new communication driver or complex application logic can be implemented through an external DLL.
If you had the feeling that not even extensive configurable functions, including database functions, use of SQL commands for work with process databases, possibility of running external applications and scripts, communication with devices and external applications through OPC client, OPC server and web services do not fulfill all your needs then with new version of OpcDbGateway all your doubts are past.
