DataHub® Non-Windows Operating System Options

Linux Connectivity



Need to access OPC and DDE data in Linux? How about making real-time data from your embedded systems available to Windows based applications? The OPC DataHub makes this easy, by allowing you to connect directly to its Linux counterpart: the Cascade DataHub. Mirroring data between these two DataHub programs gives you complete and reliable data integration on each platform.





















Why use the OPC DataHub to integrate data from Windows, Linux?


  • Fully integrate data from OPC servers into your embedded Linux systems.
  • Connect your embedded systems to multiple OPC servers to aggregate data into a common data set.
  • Linux systems access data from the Cascade DataHub using simple API function calls.
  • Mirroring network connections automatically detect and recover after a network break.
  • Point-to-point bridging in the OPC DataHub helps you easily associate points in the OPC Server with points in your Linux applications.
  • DataHub scripting allows you to modify data as it passes through the DataHub.
  • The mirroring connection is fully bi-directional, so you can read and write data in either direction.


Other Operating Systems Connectivity


Any operating system that can open a TCP/IP connection, and through your application code, parse a name/value pair, can use the DataHub API’s to connect to the Cogent DataHub.  For more details see the DataHub APIs or contact us to discuss your application.
