OPC Redundancy Broker offers a seamless software solution that implements driver level redundancy supporting both OPC DA, HDA, and A&E.
The OPC Redundancy Broker (ORB) enables easy implementation of redundancy in systems that take advantage
of OPC technology. ORB is designed for OPC applications that must use redundant hardware and/or software
to achieve the highest degree of communication reliability. ORB can even be retrofitted to current systems
since ORB functions with any OPC server, regardless of vendor.
ORB constantly monitors the Primary OPC server. When a failure is detected,
it automatically redirects communication to the Standby OPC server. No data is
lost and there is no system downtime.
- Support for multiple, same server, redundant pairs
- Support redundancy for DA, A&E, and HDA OPC Servers
- Full OPC HDA support for selected HDA interfaces.
- Status tags enable you to track which OPC Servers are down
- Multiple levels of redundancy (Hot, Warm, and Cold)
- Automatically switches between from primary to standby or vice versa when the criterion of failover is detected.
- Allow “Force a Failover” to manually toggle between the primary to standby or vice versa
- Powerful failover detection engine (trigger failover on item deviation, threshold, rate of change, and quality)
- Full support for Matrikon OPC Tunneller
- Windows 32-bit and 64-bit are natively supported.
OPC Alarms & Events Functionality
OPC Redundancy Broker now supports the OPC Alarms & Events (OPC A&E) specification.
This increased functionality is designed for solutions that require highly available sequence
of event (SOE) data. There is no other product on the market today that provides users with
industrial strength OPC server level redundancy like MatrikonOPC Redundancy Broker.
Increase the availability of Safety Systems Data
There are countless scenarios where Matrikon OPC Redundancy Broker can be effectively used to
enhance the performance of plant safety systems. One such example is to combine the proven
reliability of OPC Redundancy technology to create a robust solution for interfacing with Triconex
safety systems. This solution provides OPC A&E client applications (i.e.
MatrikonOPC A&E Historian) with the ability to increase the availability of
Sequence of Event (SOE) data. Users can now easily combine Triconex’s famous triple redundancy
with full OPC DA/A&E redundancy right out of the box!
ORB works with any OPC Client software. It handles all configuration and fail-over issues
automatically! ORB enables easy implementation of a transparent, redundant environment with no
ORB can be used to seamlessly upgrade an existing OPC infrastructure. Once a standby
OPC Server is added, ORB will automatically enable all the client software to quickly make use of
the reinforced system.
ORB makes implementing redundancy easier than ever! The user interface allows for such
easy configuration that the existing OPC architecture can be made redundant in a matter of seconds.
No programming and no hassles!
Watchdog Tags can be configured to trigger a fail-over.
ORB automatically handles fail-overs, but it can also provide notification
by various configurable methods!
