VisSim/OPC – Add-On

VisSim/OPC is an OPC client add-on to VisSim. Based on proven Kepware OPC client technology, VisSim/OPC allows VisSim to connect to any OPC server, including all Kepware servers. Using VisSim/OPC, you can easily log data or run a virtual plant in VisSim for off-line tuning or operator training.

Just Click, Wire and Go

To exchange data between VisSim and any OPC server, you simply wire OPC Read and OPC Write blocks into a diagram and then click the Go button. The OPC Read and OPC Write blocks let you read data from and write data to an OPC server. Update rates and data exchange modes are easily specified. You can also edit item names (including data types and initial value), time bias, percent deadband, and language ID. You use the OPC Server block to establish a connection with the OPC server. You can create connections to as many OPC servers as you require.

VisSim/OPC works with popular PLC/DCS equipment from companies including Honeywell, Emerson Process, Siemens, and Allen Bradley.

What do our Customers say about us?

At 13-years old, my daughter’s research manuscript has been accepted for publication in a top tier peer-reviewed Environmental Science journal and OriginPro 8.6 will allow her to export the graphs in a wide variety of formats which can meet any publisher’s requirements. Kudos to OriginLab for designing innovative and intuitive software that can span the needs of both a burgeoning young scientist like my daughter to a PhD expert in their field. It is hard to imagine that other products offer this extraordinary level of user versatility.

Thank you so much for all your help this morning. Endnote works just fine now and I’m enjoying working on this editorial. I am almost tempted to add your name as a co-author, but the journal won’t allow it! Thanks again.

Bob worked tirelessly over many hours (and days!) to try to resolve the issue. His efforts were truly appreciated on my behalf. He was polite, caring and nothing was too much trouble. Many, many thanks Bob.

Our Account Manager, Stephanie, was fantastic in dealing with our questions and my colleague’s concerns (many thanks Stephanie!) and your colleague Joe has provided invaluable assistance to my colleagues and myself during our initial and extended testing phases of Reference Manager.
