ReLab Software releases OPC Gateway, this product enables interoperability, bridging, of network computers using OPC technology. The OPC Gateway enables efficient, fast and secure data delivery between networked computers while eliminating the need to address DCOM configuration issues, data throughput limitation due to bandwidth, domain restrictions and firewall obstacles.
The OPC Gateway links computers on the network, simply and easily. The product has two components. The OPC Gateway Producer which collects the OPC data from multiple OPC servers, packages it and the sends it to the OPC Gateway Consumer. Configuration is only required for the OPC Gateway Producer, which simplifies the operation of the OPC Gateway and improves the reliability.
