The OPC Server for SNMP provides connectivity to SNMP compliant devices such as network switches, UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) systems, media converters and other network devices. The OPC Server enables full monitoring and control of SNMP-enabled devices from any OPC compliant application such as IT Management Systems and HMIs.
The SNMP protocol is typically used in the IT networking environment and is useful for both IT and plant-floor operators to diagnose problems. For example, did a PLC really go off-line or is it the network hub? By using the OPC Server for SNMP you can monitor the network hub problems and diagnose much more quickly therefore rectified more quickly.
