The Transfer-Objects can be used to perform the standard actions for file exchange via FTP and SMB (read, write and delete). The data for the file operations can be processed or generated with the transfer objects for JSON, XML or CSV which are included in the OPC Router by default. Binary data can be transferred directly to transfer objects of other plug-ins, for example to save them in a database.
With the transfer-Object for reading a file, the data is read either as a character string or as a binary data block. After reading, the file is either moved or deleted.
The Write Transfer-Object is used to write data to a file. You can also write data as a character string or in binary format. Files are created if they do not exist and named according to a pattern of your choice. You can append to existing files.
The Delete Transfer-Object deletes defined files.
