FP OPC Server

The Panasonic OPC Server allows high-performance data transfer between applications supporting the universally accepted OPC DA Standard (v1-v3) and Panasonic FP Series PLCs.

What is OPC?

  • OPC (OLE for Process Control) is the standard communication interface for data exchange between client applications (HMI/SCADA, control/command) and industrial devices (PLC, I/O blocks, drives, etc). OPC is built upon the proven Microsoft technologies OLE, COM and DCOM (Distributed COM).
  • OPC specifications are designed by the OPC Foundation to meet the general needs of industry. They are independent from the type of application, what means that access to the FP OPC server for any OPC client in its network is provided.

Features of the FP OPC Server

  • Modern and intuitive user interface allows you to configure the server. While creating the application, sophisticated user assistance helps you in your work.
  • The server complies to the following OPC DA client/server technologies:
     OPC DA 1.0a
     OPC DA 2.05a
     OPC DA 3.0
  • The PLCs can be accessed via serial, modem and Ethernet communication lines.
  • State-of-the-art import / export mechanism allows you to save, exchange or edit data in XML format. Data can also be exchanged using a CSV file.
  • An icon or tool tip notifies the user about possible errors in configuration.
  • The FP OPC Server allows you to clearly structure your application, e.g. by grouping elements in meaningful hierarchies.
