NAUTSILUS ExlinkDCS (earlier NAUTSILUS OPC Explorer) is a smart OPC diagnostic and
communicating software tool.
NAUTSILUS ExlinkDCS v.1.4 consists of the following components:
- OPC-OPC gateway
- OPC-QNX-Linux gateway
- OPC-HTTP gateway
- Data Server
- OPC Client
OPC-OPC gateway enables to transfer data
from one OPC server to another. Number of simultaneously connected
servers and links between items are unlimited.
ÎÐÑ-QNX-Linux gateway consists of two
parts, one for MS Windows OS and second for the QNX or for the
This gateway enables to transfer data into programs under QNX
and Linux operating systems. ÎÐÑ-QNX-Linux gateway includes
API and toolkit which enables to develop link between OPC items
and control programs under QNX 4.x, QNX 6.x & Linux.
On the base of ÎÐÑ-QNX-Linux gateway
OPC gateways for OPUS/Sitex/Phocus (QNX 4.x),
Realflex (QNX 4.x) SCADA systems and
ISaGRAF, ISaGRAF PRO targets (QNX 4.x, QNX 6.x, Linux)
ÎÐÑ-HTTP gateway allows you to view the
current data through the Internet browser. The data are sent
by using the TCP/IP protocol. Both directions (read/write) are
supported.The OPC-HTTP gateway is an option for the ExlinkDCS.
It is active when you see the "HTTP" menu item, and the ExlinkDCS
folder contains the opcclhttp.dll file.
Data Server allows you to add to the
ExlinkDCS optional variables of boolean, integer, or real types.
Alike the OPC elements these variables could be liable with
the gateway variables in QNX/Linux and could be viewed in
Nautsilus ExlinkDCS is an OPC Client tool that
provides data monitoring, performance measurement, diagnostic, and
interface validation for any OPC server.
It is invaluable for anyone building or troubleshooting applications
which use OPC data.
Nautsilus ExlinkDCS simplifies the task to import live data
originating from any OPC Servers into office applications such
You can use ExlinkDCS as a diagnostic tool to
investigate and report back on configured OPC servers.
In addition, you can use ExlinkDCS to view and run local OPC
The system enables you to test the interfaces for the configured OPC servers. Link live
data into spreadsheets and other applications capable of OLE Linking via a simple 'Copy
& Paste' operation, linked data will update in the spreadsheet at a configurable rate.
Reading arbitrary OPC items via Excel Visual Basic macros is simplified down to a single
function call, allowing Excel to monitor any OPC accessible device in the most effective
way. In some cases this can eleminate the need for other HMI software.
ExlinkDCS since ver. 1.02 supports OPC Data Access
ExlinkDCS since ver. 1.5 supports OPC Historic Data Access
