OPC - "Oh Please Connect"     

The Data Commander™ is an MES gateway appliance opposing PCs and OPC middleware on the factory floor. It is designed as industrial hardened firmware using point-and-click setup to deliver manufacturing intelligence in minutes versus days.

Connect PLCs to Databases

The Data Commander™ eliminates PCs and OPC middleware to connect factory automation with database servers. A high-speed, two-way gateway connection protects data integrity and isolates OT from IT networks.  Auto-enumerated Inserts, Updates, Selects, and Stored Procedure calls communicate directly to the database, and native drivers provide easy access to all PLC memory areas.

OT-IT Convergence

Contact us to learn how our MES gateway appliance can be leveraged to improve your production processes and equipment ROI. The Data Commander™ was created to help you connect OT with IT without compromising your networks.
