"Our customers are looking for the most cost-effective solution for integrating real-time data," said Jose Valente, Manager of EngVirtual. "With the OPC DataHub, they can connect their monitoring equipment, analyze output in Excel, and log the data to their existing databases, all with a single product."

"We welcome EngVirtual's expertise in the electric power and energy management fields, as well as their experience with industrial control software," said Andrew Thomas, President of Cogent. "The OPC DataHub fits well into the EngVirtual product line, and we expect it to provide substantial value for their customers."
