OPC Data Manager (ODM) is a software application that transfers data from one OPC server to another. Use ODM when you need to share, map, and bridge OPC data between two or more control systems (e.g. PLC and a DCS). With ODM this connectivity can be accomplished with standard, off-the-shelf software.

Traditionally hard wires connected both inputs and outputs of control systems to transfer such data. This made data sharing complex to setup properly and expensive to maintain. OPC is well suited to sharing data between different vendors’ systems because it eliminates connectivity problems caused by proprietary communications. The easiest way to connect two OPC Servers (one for each device) is to use OPC Data Manager. OPC Data Manager is specifically designed to share real-time, historical, and Alarm & Events data between two or more control systems in a secure and reliable manner. The interface is intuitive making the mapping process quick and easy.

OLE for Process Control (OPC) servers are available for every major system on the market today. OPC-enabled systems share data by implementing one application as an OPC client and another as an OPC server. Sometimes, however, neither application is an OPC client; instead, both are servers. Two OPC servers can't exchange data, as they are designed to respond to a client's requests and are unable to generate requests. OPC Data Manager solves this problem by acting as a 'double-headed' or 'thin' OPC client to both OPC Servers. It requests data from one server and immediately sends it to the other OPC server.

    Simulation and Testing
    Sometimes, the hardware required for testing may be unavailable. With ODM, the lack of hardware will not delay your testing schedule. No matter what OPC server is being used, ODM can populate it with simulated data using the MatrikonOPC Simulation Server.

    Sustained Throughput (based on PIII 400 MHz)
    10,000 reads per second
    3,000 reads/writes per second

    The value of any point can easily be accessed by double clicking on it.

    Use ODM to implement full redundancy. The Primary ODM executes on one PC, while the Standby ODM (on another PC) monitors the Primary’s operation. If the Standby ODM detects a failure, it takes over immediately. This ensures that only one ODM transfers data at a time and avoids data loss. ODM can also be used with the MatrikonOPC Redundancy Broker (ORB).

    Multiple Options
    Each point can be configured separately to scale values and provide default error values.

    Automatic Startup
    The simple configuration allows you to save special login information. In the event of an unscheduled shutdown, ODM will automatically restart along with other Windows services, log in to the necessary OPC servers, and fully recover without any user intervention.
