New Data Logging Interface for OPC DataHub

The OPC DataHub's all-new Data Logging interface makes it easier than ever to log data from OPC servers to any ODBC-compliant database.

Georgetown, Ontario (May 15, 2007) Responding to popular demand, Cogent Real-Time Systems has just released an easy-to-use Data Logging interface for their OPC DataHub software. Users can now create and configure database tables to log data from any OPC server with a few clicks of the mouse. They can trigger the logging actions according to data change events, alarm conditions, or timers.

"This interface provides the same reliable connectivity from an OPC server to an ODBC database that people have come to expect from the OPC DataHub," said Andrew Thomas, president of Cogent, "and now the configuration is quick and simple. We've had a lot of requests for a convenient user interface, and the initial response to this release has been very positive."

Logging OPC data to an ODBC-compliant database is vital for engineers and analysts who need to use data from live factory systems within their corporate manufacturing execution systems (MES) or enterprise resource systems (ERP). There has long been a chasm separating production data and management analytical tools which most forward-thinking managers are anxious to close.

Combining a robust design with ease of use, the OPC DataHub gives quick, easy, and reliable access to valuable information direct from the factory floor. It is an integrated tool that collects live data from any number of sources, and distributes it in real time to spreadsheets, web browsers, and databases. The Data Logging interface supports logging to any ODBC-compliant database, such as Access, SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL and many more. An upcoming version of the interface will offer logging to text files as well.
