.NET Server Development Toolkits

Advosol offers toolkits and components for the development of OPC servers for all OPC specifications. The application specific server part can be developed as a .Net assembly using C# or Visual Basic .Net. The OPC Client interface is handled in the generic server.
The same customization .NET plug-in assembly can be used with the different toolkits for Classic OPC (DCOM) and the newer Web Services based OPC specifications. Simplifying the migration from Classic OPC (DCOM communication) to the newer OPC specifications is an important Advosol product design goal.
The Advosol toolkit servers support 32-bit and 64-bit operation with the same application specific plug-in DLL..

Support of multiple OPC specifications can be achieved with converter servers and Advosol offers a comprehensive set of OPC Converter Servers.
However, having the specific server for the customer requested or preferred OPC specification simplifies the usage, configuration and maintenance and offers best performance.
