dataFEED OPC Tunnel

OPC Tunnel Functionality for Simple and Secure OPC Classic Communication

dataFEED OPC Tunnel is a dataFEED OPC Suite component and avoids the occurrence of DCOM configuration problems in cross-computer OPC Classic communication. At the same time, high performance, robustness and reliability for data exchange across networks are guaranteed. Thanks to the integrated Store&Forward functionality, data is buffered when the connection is interrupted and automatically forwarded after the connection is re-established.
