MBX OPC Server Suite
|Product Category: Server||Target User: End User|
|The MBX OPC Server is available in two packages: the MBX OPC Server Suite and the MBX OPC Premier Suite.|
The MBX OPC Premier Suite includes everything you get in the MBX OPC Server Suite, plus the Math &
Logic and OPC Crosslink features.
Math & Logic lets you write programs to perform mathematical or logical operations on any data
items that are available to the OPC server. The results are available as OPC data to any attached
OPC client. With Cyberlogic's Math & Logic, you write the programs in the server, where all of the
data is available in one location, so the programs can be written one time, with one editor, using
one language. You won't have multiple versions to maintain in multiple locations. Cyberlogic's
C-Logic™ programming language is similar to C, so it is easy to learn. It also provides functions,
data types, editing tools and debugging aids that you won't find in PLCs or client applications.
And because the programs are compiled, they run far faster than is possible with interpreted code.
OPC Crosslink allows the MBX OPC Server to communicate with any OPC DA Server—any brand or
revision level—just as it does with PLCs. It also allows the OPC server to pass data to and
from any of the connected devices. That means you can configure the server to be an OPC data
concentrator, bridge data between PLCs or OPC servers, or even bridge data between OPC servers and
PLCs. When combined with a DHX OPC Server, you can pass data between Modicon and Allen-Bradley
controllers. For full details of the OPC Crosslink capabilities, please refer to the description
of the OPC Crosslink Suite.

All MBX OPC products include, on a single DVD, Cyberlogic’s OPC Server and its complete set of MBX
device drivers for Schneider Electric’s Modicon industrial networks. It communicates with any
combination of controllers using any or all of the popular Modicon networks.
Because the suite comprises all of the needed pieces, installation of the software is simple and
easy. Users are assured that all components are compatible and all are at the same revision level.
And, as with all Cyberlogic software products, unlimited free technical support from Cyberlogic is
The single-supplier approach allows Cyberlogic to optimize the communications at the driver,
transaction and server level. The resulting speed and network-load performance is superior to
competing “mix-and-match” server setups. In addition, the server offers unsolicited data updates
with advanced message filtering from unwanted data sources to ensure data integrity and security.
This is the server of choice for mission-critical applications, because you can lose a connection,
a controller or even an entire network and still get the data you need. When the faulted equipment
comes back on-line, the server switches back to the primary path as soon as it verifies that the
connection is reliable. To achieve this, Cyberlogic’s Server allows users to set up an unlimited
number of redundant networks and backup controllers to ensure uninterrupted data exchange. The
server monitors the health of every path used to access data, automatically switching to the
backup paths or sources when it detects a problem.
A full-featured download is available at www.cyberlogic.com. It will run continuously for two weeks
and in two-hour segments thereafter. Cyberlogic also offers the Cyberlogic Developer Network,
providing free licensing for development and testing. Details are available on our website.
