OPC Hub and Spoke solution is designed to solve many individual
problems manufacturers are currently facing, including reliability, accuracy,
maintainability and affordability of historizing process data. OPC Hub and
Spoke is a solution based on a number of individual OPC technologies to
reliably transfer process and business data from remote locations to a central
repository as well as securely trend and analyze your process data at the
Process Data must be accurate and accessible, yet secure. Having
unreliable communication channels can severely impact your data integrity.
Using OPC Hub and Spoke solution, process data can be securely collected
and buffered at the data source, and then forwarded to the central historian
when the communication is restored, guaranteeing the data delivery and
integrity of your process data.
OPC Hub and Spoke design is instrumental in creating a standard based
solution for the collection and analysis of historical process data. Based
on OPC HDA, Historical Data Access is the OPC standard used to exchange
archived data, process data can be easily exchanged between an application and
any data-archive in a consistent manner. It also enables enterprise-wide
interoperability as all applications can rely on a single industrial standard
that is supported by all key vendors.
Guaranteed Data Delivery over unreliable communication lines.
OPC security to grant and deny access to the archived data.
Analyze, trend, and buffer your process data at the source.
Standards based (OPC) for ease of integration with third party layered
Reduce cost of ownership: training, maintenance, capital cost.
MatrikonOPC Tunneling Technology
Matrikon OPC Tunneller provides an easy, reliable and
effective way to
communicate between networked computers. It does away with
typically associated with the configuration of DCOM. No
longer are different
protocols, security settings or locations a factor when
sharing data between
computers. This is achieved by simply installing Matrikon
OPC Tunneller on
the OPC client and OPC server nodes. From that point it is
only a matter of
stipulating a computer name or IP address and the port
The MatrikonOPC HistoryLink is built upon the
technology. HistoryLink enables two OPC HDA capable
process historians to
share historical data. HistoryLink can move data on an

Historical data management has never been easier.
HistoryLink is also iC!
Enabled, thus remote configuration is possible.
MatrikonOPC Buffer is an off the shelf solution for
remote data collection,
buffering, and with the optional History-Link module;
historical data transfer
to a central process historian. This product is great for
engineers and project
managers who need guaranteed data collection and delivery
geographically remote sites.
MatrikonOPC Desktop Historian
For manufacturers that need to analyze process data,
Desktop Historian is an affordable, easy to install, easy to
configure and easy
to administer data archiving tool. Unlike enterprise process
historians that are
designed to manage the needs of the entire corporation,
Desktop Historian, an operation process historian, focuses
on data collection,
not data presentation and processing.
