"We have known about Cogent since the 90's," said Enrique Modai, Business Development Manager of eFALCOM. "They were offering software bridges between Wonderware and QNX, which was the king of realtime PC operating systems back then. Now that the world has gone with Windows, we support OPC as the protocol of choice, and recognize the benefits that the OPC DataHub can provide to our customers."

"Cogent welcomes a distributor with the experience and marketing skills that eFALCOM brings to the table," said Andrew Thomas, President of Cogent. "The company represents a broad spectrum of hardware and software, and knows well the needs of system integrators and plant engineers."

"We learned about the OPC DataHub from an associate in Europe who has been testing it for data connectivity and visualization solutions," said Enrique. "We see where it can fit into a number of different application spaces, and our customers are excited by the possibilities."

The OPC DataHub provides quick, reliable, and secure access to valuable information direct from the factory floor. It is an integrated tool that can present live process data directly on an engineer's or manager's desk in a form most suitable: database, spreadsheet, or web page. It provides OPC tunnelling, bridging, and aggregation, and has a free API to support virtually any requirement for OPC connectivity.

eFALCOM is an electrical engineering company specializing in industrial automation and process control systems. Since 1979 eFALCOM has been working with Texas Instruments, a pioneer and leader in South America for PLC technology, as well as Siemens, Beckhoff, and other hardware and software providers. On April 20, 2010 eFALCOM obtained ISO 9001/2008 certification for marketing, development, installation, training and commissioning automation solutions, process control and RFID.
