Modbus OPC server functionality expanded

MatrikonOPC™ simplifies open data sharing with the HC900 line of Hybrid Controllers in the release of its latest OPC Server for Modbus. With expanded communication options and a streamlined interface, the MatrikonOPC Server for Modbus provides users with an optimized workflow making configuration and maintenance faster and more intuitive.

With built-in role-based security down to the per- tag-level, the Modbus OPC Server actively protects the integrity of automation system data. Based on each user’s login, this OPC Server selectively grants or denies access to specific tags, providing only the right users with secure access to the right process data. Granular control over data access helps prevent accidental or intentional unauthorized OPC data access. As a part of the overall infrastructure, this OPC server adds another layer to a system’s overall defense-in-depth strategy.

“Secure, reliable access to data in control automation systems is crucial,” said Darek Kominek, marketing manager at MatrikonOPC. “With an optimised user interface and an expanded range of natively supported Modbus variants, the MatrikonOPC server for OPC devices helps make your projects more successful.”

Key features include:
redundant device communications
precise control over who can access what data via role-based security
support for OPC Alarms and Events
