OPC Router Base System OPC Router Base System

OPC Router Base System – Main Functions.

The Base System of the OPC Router already offers many helpful functions to create transfers within the OPC Router. Furthermore, use of calculations, notes, variables and constants is possible. Data transfers can be executed or prompted. Additionally, various trigger configurations are contained.

Watch our tutorial videos to see how to read process values from an OPC UA Server and save them in a CSV file and how easy it is to transfer CSV files into a database.

That’s how easy it is.

What’s Transfer, Trigger and Browsing?

Transfer-Objekte

The OPC Router Base System also contains Transfer Objects:

Constants

Constants allow enhancements to fields with constants for transferred data, for instance when the machine ID (number), the plant number and other values need to be read out.

Variables

Variables allow saving of data during transfer. Any number of internal variables with different data types can be defined and used in cross-transfer scenarios. Furthermore, several system variables allow output of curent system time stamps (also as UTC).

Data Transfer

Reading and processing text files through data transfer objects is possible. The file is compiled as data package. After processing, the object can relocate files into separate folders that are marked “processed”.

Trigger

The OPC Router Base System incorporates the Time Trigger function, among other important functions.

Time Trigger

The time trigger allows prompting of cyclical transfers, or of transfers at any predefined time. As of Version 4.7 recurring time items can be configured to run in cyclical mode.

Browsing

The OPC Router Base System offers browsing funktionalities, which depends on the object.

Variables

Variables are maintained in a centrale place and can be browsed, when objects are used during transfer jobs.

Data Transfer

The output path for processed data can be browsed.

Calculator

The calculator offers place holder or place marker functions, which can be selected from a list and thus pasted into a formular or calculation. Mathematical calculations available in the list can also be browsed and selected in the same way.

OPC UA Client Plug-in Application Examples

Video tutorial: Easy transfer of OPC Data into CSV Format

This video tutorial shows how easy it is to read process values out of an OPC UA server and save them into a CSV file. The process values are read on data change and create a new record set into an existing csv file (or creates a new one, if one already exists). Just connect OPC UA data points, CSV document and create corresponding CSV file simply via drag & drop.

Video: Easy transfer of CSV files into a database

Watch this video tutorial to see how easy it is to extract records from a CSV file and write the CSV column values to a database table. There is a simple format where each process variable has its own measure ID. Both process values (temperature and pressure) are written as individual data records in the same table. You can monitor a folder for the corresponding CSV file(s), read out data and write them into a corresponding table simply by drag & drop.
