Duluth, GA— To eliminate the need for costly custom interfaces, DVT Corp. has introduced its new PC-based OPC server designed to work with the company’s Legend series of smart camera-based machine vision systems. DVT's OPC Server was developed by Iconics Inc. (Foxborough, MA), a leader in OPC-based, web-enabled visualization software for manufacturing, automation, and business solutions.

DVT reports that it adopted OPC technology because it can eliminate custom interfaces and drivers normally required for interconnecting equipment and moving data throughout the organi-zation. It also promotes interoperability among different computing solutions and platforms both horizontally and vertically in the enterprise.

“The DVT OPC server opens the world of plug-and-play interoperability to machine vision users,” says Steve Gieseking, DVT's R&D director. “It's easier to configure and is more robust than existing OPC software options.” DVT OPC server supports the following standards: OPC DA 1.0; OPC DA 2.05A; OPC DA 3.0; OPC DA Auto 2.0; OPC XML-DA 1.0; OPC AE 1.10; and OPC Complex Data 1.0.

DVT adds that it's the global leader in smart camera-based machine vision systems and is the only company in the industry to offer free vision software, free online and classroom training, and free online technical support.
