The OPC interface is increasingly gaining in popularity in automation
technology. Thanks to its high degree of functionality and interoperability it
is frequently used for connecting telecontrol and automation devices to SCADA
and HMI systems. As a member of the
OPC Foundation we are dedicated to
maintaining the compatibility of our products with the OPC standard and products
of other vendors. We are able to offer these OPC family interfaces:
- OPC DA 3.0, Server can be used together with ipConvOPC or ipConv
and Windows operating systems*. ipConvOPC
is available from € 2.000,-.
- OPC UA 1.02, Server and OPC DAXML 1.01, Server can be used together with ipConvLite, ipConvOPC and ipConv both under Linux and Windows*.
- OPC DA 3.0, Client can be used together with ipConvOPC or ipConv
and Windows operating systems*.
The following Windows operating systems* are supported:
Windwos XP, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 (R2), Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 (R2)
You want to connect telecontrol or automation
devices using protocols such as IEC 60870-5-101, IEC 60870-5-104 etc. to a SCADA or HMI system
via the OPC interface...
Supplied as a complete software package for the Windows NT/2000/2003/XP
operating systems, ipConvOPC is a cost-effective solution. The software can
either be installed directly at the control station or on a separate system. Telecontrol and automation devices can be connected
via selected protocols (see
Other options are OPC DA 3.0, Server or OPC DAXML 1.01, Server to enable data exchange with the OPC DA or OPC DAXML client.
Based on the OPC standard, our ipConvOPC
can be used with any control station for instance WinCC (Siemens), Intouch (Wonderware)
and is compatible with control technology by any other vendors such as VA TECH SAT, AREVA
or Emerson .
This enables telecontrol or automation devices to be connected to almost any
control station with an OPC client.

You want to connect various telecontrol or
automation devices (slave) to several different control stations (master)...
The ipConvOPC software package may include several protocol modules (master/slave)
allowing the connection of different telecontrol or automation devices to different
The ipConvOPCsoftware needs to be installed on a
separate Windows node workstation to implement this application.
Reference project: BLS AlpTransit - Lötschbergtunnel
You want to connect telecontrol or
automation devices (slave) to the control station by
integration in the (TCP/IP) network using the OPC interface...
ipEther232 - The RS232/Ethernet Converter enables the transmission of serial protocols such as
IEC 60870-5-101 over the Ethernet or TCP/IP networks. The ipConvOPC
software package installed on the workstation of the control center effects the
IEC 60870-5-101 to OPC.
