MatrikonOPC has released its MatrikonOPC server for Allen-Bradley PLCs. This OPC server provides connectivity to all Allen-Bradley Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Ethernet/IP, and ControlLogix devices and routing. According to the company, the new level of PLC connectivity represents true “universal connectivity.”
The industrial-strength OPC Server can provide OPC connectivity to Allen-Bradley Data Highway Plus (DH+), Allen-Bradley DF1 (DF1), Allen-Bradley Data Highway 485 (DH485) and Ethernet/IP networks. It connects to devices via serial connections, single port Allen-Bradley 1784- PKTX PCI cards, and Ethernet connections.







Matrikon says flexibility and ease of use “were paramount” in the development of the OPC server. The goal was to develop a “universal” Allen-Bradley OPC Server that would be easy to install and configure. Users receive proven MatrikonOPC technology and software support.
