"We have many customers, system integrators mainly, who use OPC," said Daniel Martinez, General Manager of Sumelco. "They all need access to their data. If they have any OPC server on a machine, it doesn't matter which one, they can install the OPC DataHub and then take the data and put it where they wish--databases, email, Excel files, or web pages."

"The OPC DataHub is a perfect fit in the instrumentation market," said Andrew Thomas, President of Cogent. "In today's process environment more and more professionals expect easy access to their data for real-time integration. This is what the OPC DataHub provides."

"This product is for people who use OPC servers and want to do something more with their data," added Mr. Martinez. "If they need something from their SCADA system, they can take the data out and do what they wish with it. If they want to connect two OPC servers together, or send their data across the network, they will find the OPC DataHub very useful."

The OPC DataHub gives 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.

Sumelco has been serving the process industry for more than 30 years, distributing control equipment and instrumentation, as well as providing software and support. Sumelco's state-of-the-art control and process supervision technology, the PC Registrador, standardizes registration of SComm data and facilitates process registration, resulting in a standard database for rapid access to information logged by analog or digital means.
