OPC Router Base System
OPC Router Base System – Main Functions.
The Base System of the OPC Router already offers many helpful functions, such as enabling transfers from 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.
That’s how easy it is.
The OPC Router Base System also contains Transfer Objects:
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 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).
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”.
The OPC Router Base System incorporates the Time Trigger function, among other important functions.
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.
The OPC Router Base System offers browsing funktionalities, which depends on the object.
Variables are maintained in a centrale place and can be browsed, when objects are used during transfer jobs.
The output path for processed data can be browsed.
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.
