Plug-ins & Co – modular system integration

The OPC Router implements the communication to a divers range of systems. This implementation is realized using extensions like our “Plug-ins“, “Add-ons” and “ETL-Tools“. Each extension is configured in accordance with the particular requirements of the target system. This connectivity diversity allows you to collect and merge data and thus make the information available at the right place at the right time.

The modular OPC Router server license applies for as many clients, data points and connections as required and pays off even if only a few functions are utilised.

Connect your systems to each other without programming and implement your Industry 4.0 system integration.

What are transfer objects, trigger functions and browsing?

The connections in the OPC Router to network systems can be structured with the core functions of the OPC Router.
Depending on the plugin, the functions have various forms, regardless of the functionality of the connected system.

Transfer Objects

Sources and Destinations

Transfer objects are the sources and destinations inside the OPC Router. They contain data fields with read and write functions. Depending on the respective interconnected system, the possible configuration scope of sources and destinations may vary.

Homegeinity on the Outside – Heterogeinity on the Inside

Inside the OPC Router configuration, the transfer object abstracts the respective system of any connected system into a simple data input and data output block. Thus, the functions can be treated in the same way although each connected system has very individual features.

Trigger Functions

Prompting Connections

Triggers determine execution time of data connections. Various triggers can be used for these connections, independent of transfer object type. Within each connection, several triggers can be used together via AND/OR-connections.

Browsing

Searching and Finding Data Fields

Easy browsing also makes data field configuration easy when establishing transfer objects in order to establish the respective interface connection. The browsing mechanisms may vary, depending on the system and its available plug-in.

Reading out Structures

Many plug-ins that are available for the OPC Router offer easy search and selection tools for quick identification of respective data fields without the need for specific knowledge about inherent subsystems. The user can easily browse through the data. Data source structures may vary according to the specification of each respective plug-in.
