Live Binding Model provides a point-and-click method for binding OPC DA tags directly to form controls for rapid, codeless development for Windows Forms.
    • Live Mapping Model - Allows you to write objects that correspond logically to a functionality provided by whatever is “behind” the OPC data. You map your objects and members to OPC by annotating them with attributes.
    • Reactive Programming Model - High-level abstraction that allows you to compose asynchronous and event-based programs using data streams and LINQ-style query operators.  Uses Microsoft Reactive Extensions (Rx) for .NET.

The Excel Option for OPC Data Client supports connections to OPC servers with following specifications

 

 

The Excel Option is a product from the OPC Data Client, while technically it is contained in the same installation package. You can also easily combine the Excel Option easiness of development with all other options and features provided by OPC Data Client, such as to add VBA code to handle more complicated tasks.

 

 

For step-by-step instructions, see Getting Started under Excel in the User's Guide.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Please Note - You must pre-own or purchase OPC Data Client license in order to use this add-on. Works with any OPC Data Client edition and license type, which follows its maintenance period.

 

The Excel Option for OPC Data Client allows you to set up a communication link between Excel and any OPC server. It is possible to subscribe to and view real-time data, and also write the data back. No programming, macros or add-ins are necessary. With just drag-and-drop or copy-and-paste, you can create Microsoft Excel sheets with live, animated OPC data.

Excel Option - Add-On

 

Features of Connectivity Explorer

 

   Selected data can be transferred to Excel, where it continues to stay subscribed, giving cell values that are    dynamically updated with live OPC data.

  Individual points, or a selected set of points, can be read or written to.

 Point parameters can be edited before a subscription, read or write is made.

 Multiple points can be easily subscribed to at once, using the "Bulk Add"    command.

 The live view can be turned online/offline with a single push of a button.

 Single cell, or any range of cells can be copied to clipboard and pasted to other programs.The currently displayed list of points can be saved to an XML file, or retrieved from a file

 Various connectivity options can be configured, and the configuration can be in turn used when the same data is accessed by Excel.

 

OPC dynamic data make their way to Excel using a built-in Excel function (RTD) that you can use in any cell. RTD is Microsoft's preferred way to get real-time data into Excel, instead of the obsolete DDE. It is possible to type in the RTD function manually as with any other function, but it is by far easier to select the OPC data in Connectivity Explorer tool, and drag-and-drop (or copy&paste) them to Excel. The RTD function addresses a so-called Connectivity RTD Server, a COM component that is part of the Excel Option, and this RTD server then performs the necessary communication with the data source.
