OmniServer™ is a fully configurable I/O server which interprets the data coming in from a device and delivers the data to any client program that supports OPC (DA and UA), as well as DDE and Wonderware SuiteLink interfaces.
OmniServer™ takes care of the polling and data parsing for you, and does this without the use of a programming language. All you need to know is the device protocol format and how you want to present the data to the outside world.
OmniServer™ can communicate with any device connected to the computer via RS-232, RS-422, RS-485, TCP/IP, and LPT. Three variants of TCP/IP are supported (TELNET, TCP, and UDP). OmniServer™ can also support all of these device types simultaneously, so there is never a problem with mixing or matching devices. And, starting with OmniServer V2.8, configuration is easier than ever with support for CSV import and export of protocol items, topic variables and registers, as well as topics and devices!
Professional services are available to assist you in building your protocol configuration, should you choose to forego creating the protocols in-house. Complimentary evaluation of your device's protocol documentation is available to help get you started.
Some of the many types of devices supported by OmniServer include:
- Bar code readers
- Chemical analyzers
- RFID Readers
- Barcode Printers
- Laser Markers
- AND many others
