Software Toolbox Releases OPC Data Logger With UA Client Support

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwire - December 20, 2010) - Software Toolbox, a leading supplier of industrial automation software, today released a new version of the OPC Data Logger which includes support for OPC UA Connectivity. The addition of the most recent OPC specification, OPC UA, expands the options for OPC Data Logger connectivity, enabling it to connect securely to OPC data sources with the latest standards. 

As the first OPC Client to pass the OPC Foundation's Independent Lab Certification Test, OPC Data Logger continues to provide a high-quality value option for the data logging needs of the automation industry.

"The addition of OPC UA Connectivity to OPC Data Logger reflects the commitment of Software Toolbox to open standards," said Win Worrall, brand manager for OPC Data Logger at Software Toolbox. "With the release of this new version of OPC Data Logger, customers can securely log data from any OPC UA Server that supports the DA profile as well as from a customer's current OPC DA servers. This combination of support ensures the long-term usability of OPC Data Logger for users."

OPC Data Logger is designed by Software Toolbox for users, integrators and OEMs seeking to quickly implement data logging of production data accessed from OPC DA and OPC UA (DA profile) servers. This data can then be managed by open data storage applications such as Oracle, SQL, MySQL, Text Files/CSV and Excel. OPC Data Logger is designed for a range of applications where a full-featured historian isn't required or practical for the application.

Wizard-driven configuration dialogs make setup and customization quick and easy. The use of native drivers for connections to Oracle, MySQL and SQL Server ensures reliable performance when logging to these open, industry-standard databases. Additional features include triggered start or stop of logging functions based on timers, events or other user-defined conditions. OPC Data Logger runs as a service for unattended operation and supports all current and previous Windows operating systems ranging from Windows 2000 to Server 2008 R2 (x86 and x64 versions). Complimentary trial versions are available at www.opcdatalogger.com.
