OPC Software

ipConvOPC

ipConvOPC is a universal protocol converter for Windows operating systems and is used for coupling different protocols. Based on ipConv, ipConvOPC basically offers the same functionalities.

For conversion with ipConvOPC, established standard protocols are available for flexible use on existing hardware.

The following interfaces from the OPC family are offered particularly:

  • OPC UA 1.02, Server
  • OPC UA 1.02, Client
  • OPC DA 3.0, Server
  • OPC DA 3.0, Client
  • OPC DAXML 1.01, Server
  • OPC AE 1.10, Server
  • OPC AE 1.10, Client

ipConvOPC is offered as a pure software version.

The following Windows operating systems are supported: Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 (R2), Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2012 (R2), Windows 10, Windows Server 2016.


 

ipConv/VM

ipConv/VM is a system for universal protocol conversion in virtual machines and enables data transmission between different protocols.

ipConv/VM is based on ipConv and basically offers the same functionality. Established standard protocols are available for conversion with ipConv/VM for flexible use on existing hardware.

The virtual machine is provided as a downloadable OVA template (Open Virtualization Appliance), which can be opened or imported by supported hypervisors to create new VM instances.

To run the virtual appliance ipConv/VM, a VMware Workstation (version 11.x or later) or a VMware ESXi host system (version 6.0 or later) is required. For evaluation purposes, ipConv/VM can also be set up with the VMware Workstation Player.

No USB dongle is needed to license a virtual machine: We provide you with a VM-specific license in form of a license file. Thus, the license is preserved when the VM is moved or migrated. By cloning or copying the VM, the imported license becomes invalid and must be requested again.

In addition to the bundled software for protocol conversion ipConv/VM, the OVA template comes with IPCOMM's proprietary open source Linux distribution ipLinux, which is preconfigured for optimal interoperability with virtual machines.
