Instrument OPC Server

CEMView connects directly to most analysis instruments with communication capability using an instrument specific OPC Server. The advantages and benefits of a direct connection, utilizing the Ethernet or serial communication capability of the analyzer are immeasurable.  They include: the elimination of A/D and D/A conversion errors and signal drifts; significant reduction in the cost and complexity of the interconnect wiring; and enhanced maintenance, diagnostic and troubleshooting capability as an invaluable feature.

Nexus Solutions has developed a number of OPC Servers to interface CEMView to analyzers from various manufacturers. The OPC standards ensure that CEMView is fully capable of interfacing to any analyzer. For legacy CEM systems, CEMView can connect to the analysis instrument’s analog and discrete I/O using any standard I/O sub-system such as the Advantys STB Modular Distributed I/O platform. It is also possible to connect to a programmable logic controller (PLC) using the appropriate OPC Server from the PLC manufacturer or a third party OPC Server vendor.
