OptoDataLink, part of the PAC Project Professional Software Suite from Opto 22, transparently provides multiple connections for exchanging data.

Opto 22 recently released a series of products to make things easier and more economical for automation system integration of various control components. OptoDataLink, enterprise connectivity software application (part of the PAC Project Professional software suite), allows Snap PAC System users to create a bi-directional data transfer link between PACs and enterprise databases, using standard methods and file types, without recreating tag names.

With OptoDataLink, users can consolidate and publish data from Snap PAC controllers and brains to Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Access, and MySQL, among others. Previously, users could deploy OptoOPCServer to consolidate and publish control systems data only to OPC-aware clients. Unlike some competing data link products, no HMI needs to be configured or running to use this software, Opto 22 says, reducing time, expense, maintenance, and costs.

" Opto 22: automation hardware, software needs to get simpler " discusses philosophy behind the launch and more than 20 products involved.
