The OPC Interface for Siemens SIMATIC 505 PLCs is an OPC compliant server that enables data exchange between OPC clients and 505 PLCs. The server provides read and write access to most register types, and supports extended addressing for PLCs with V registers greater than 65535. Connecting to the PLCs is done through the CTI 2572 Ethernet card. When an OPC client requests a connection to a specific Item ID the server automatically validates, configures and optimizes the request with existing data request packets.
The OPC Server for SIMATIC TI505 supports the following features and operations:
- Channel Level Redundancy
- Advanced Calculation Engine
- Device exploration: automatic OPC tag generation
- Supports OPC Security 1.0 specification
- Competitive system expansion.
- Elimination of the fear of being “Locked In” to a single vendor.
The SIMATIC TI505 OPC Server from MatrikonOPC enables real-time, high speed data transfer simultaneously to the many PLCs of the SIMATIC family allowing OPC Clients to monitor, control, coordinate, archive and trend all available point types.
