Matrikon's Honeywell OptiVISION RTC provides Real-Time Connectivity for OptiVISION. OptiVISION RTC automates the data collection from almost any QCS (Quality Control System) such as ABB Accuray 1190, NDC ProNet, and others. Once a paper reel is complete, OptiVISION RTC creates an MxScanProc-compatible file (which contains both turn up and profile scans for the entire reel) in a directory on the Honeywell OptiVISION server. OptiVISION RTC then automatically restarts the data collection for the next reel. The data capture, and file creation are both triggered on reel-start and reel-finish events.
As an alternative to capturing real-time data, OptiVISION RTC can also retrieve information archived in a Process Historian.
Matrikon's Honeywell OptiVISION RTC (Real-Time Connector) includes support for:
- Data capture uses the OPC DA (Data Access) 1.0 and 2.0 specification. Drivers are available for almost any DCS or PLC from ABB, Bailey, NDC, Valmet, etc.
- Data retrieval using OPC HDA (Historical Data Access 1.1). Drivers are available for almost any process historian such as OSI PI, AspenTech InfoPlus.21, Kaeverner MOPS, etc.
- Information transformation from time-based, real-time data to native OptiVISION file format
- User-defined triggers for data collection and file creation
- Ethernet connectivity
