QuickOPC

Writing an OPC Client? Just a few lines can do it. Or bind to OPC data with no coding at all. Rapid integration. Free trial.

OPC Labs - Professional OPC Development Tools

Welcome to OPC Labs! OPC Labs, an independent software vendor, develop advanced software based on OPC technology. We provide commercial off-the-shelf automation software. Our flagship OPC toolkit, QuickOPC, is a set of OPC components allowing rapid client application development using wide range of programming tools and languages.

QuickOPC is a radically new approach to access OPC data. It is an ideal tool for integrating OPC connectivity into custom applications, or publishing OPC data on the web.

QuickOPC gives unbelievably short code to access OPC data and events. In addition, using complex heuristic algorithms to optimize itself on the fly, QuickOPC provides the most efficient, fastest access to the OPC data.

3D box Excel Option The Excel Option for QuickOPC 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.

PicoOPC is a smallest imaginable OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) client library. It works with any .NET Standard conformant runtime. PicoOPC does not depend on any OPC UA stack.

With PicoOPC, you can create and close sessions (opc.tcp), and perform reads and writes, synchronously or asynchronously.

Featured Product: QuickOPC

 

With QuickOPC, you can forget pages of complicated code and get results with a few lines of code using a programming tool and language of your choice. Benefits...

 

The simple code below (in C# language) reads and displays an item value, using QuickOPC in .NET:

// Read item value and display it in a message box 
MessageBox.Show(EasyDAClient.SharedInstance.ReadItemValue(
"", "OPCLabs.KitServer.2", "Demo.Single").ToString());

The code below subscribes to changes of an item, and displays the value with each change:

// The callback is a lambda expression that displays the value 
EasyDAClient.SharedInstance.SubscribeItem(
    "", "OPCLabs.KitServer.2", "Demo.Single", 1000,
    (_, args) => Console.WriteLine(args.Vtq.Value));

No other product can do this in such a clear and concise code, in a single statement! The programming is straightforward, and the developer can focus on getting the work done and not on fighting the intricacies of OPC protocols.

The same code simplicity is maintained in other programming languages. Click the link to explore the corresponding examples in Visual Basic (VB.NET).

 

OPC Certification

CertificationLogo-Certified-Small-Compressed-ProgressiveQuickOPC (by the means of its Connectivity Explorer application) is certified for compliance by OPC Foundation Certification Testing Laboratory. For OPC Unified Architecture, it is the first product of its kind (.NET-based client toolkit) that has been awarded this certification.

QuickOPC 2018.3 Released
We have released QuickOPC 2018.3 today. This version marks a significant expansion in the supported development platforms, by allowing develpment for .NET Standard. QuickOPC can now be used under the .NET Core runtime, not just on Microsoft Windows, but also on Linux. We have also extended the list of supported development tools by .NET Core CLI Tools, JetBrains Rider and Visual Studio Code. Also, new specialized client objects and services allow easy cooperation with OPC UA Global Discovery Server (GDS), including its Certificate Management features. For more information, see What's new in QuickOPC 2018.3 .
QuickOPC 2018.2 Released
We are happy to announce that QuickOPC 2018.2 has been released today. This version brings in assorted improvements, such as support for headless OS versions, enhancements to OPC UA endpoint selection choices, enhancements to OPC UA discovery, and better user interface in Connectivity Explorer. For more information, see What's new in QuickOPC 2018.2 .
QuickOPC 2018.1 Released
We are happy to announce that QuickOPC 2018.1 has been released today. This version brings support for OPC UA Complex Data. In OPC UA, servers can stick to the standard types defined in the OPC UA specifications, or they can define their own types. The "non-standard" data types can be completely server-specific, or can conform to some industry standard. Usage of these data types is commonly referred to as OPC UA complex data. With complex data, it is possible that the data type is not even know at compile time; instead, it can be discovered, constructed or processed during runtime, without prior knowledge of it. The OPC UA Complex Data extension integrates into the QuickOPC component, and its functionality is thus transparently available both to .NET and COM programming languages and tools. For more information, see What's new in QuickOPC 2018.1 .
Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, University of Sheffield use educational license of QuickOPC for research
Project RAID (Reconfigurable Integrated Assembly Demonstrator) is a demonstration project currently being undertaken within the IMG group at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, Sheffield, UK. The project aims to demonstrate the benefits of various advanced manufacturing techniques in a complex assembly line environment. Developing and integrating technologies such as Smart Tools, MES, PLM, Collaborative Systems, Smart Fixturing, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Optical Projection, Digital Twin, Informatics, Part Tracking, Digital Work Instructions, Predictive Maintenance, Smart Kitting, and Remote Assistance and applying them to traditional manufacturing processes allows us to extract previously-untapped data related to both the process and product through its complete lifecycle from design and manufacture to operation and maintenance. By intelligently analyzing the data, we are able to convert this into useful information, thus allowing us to make proactive informed decisions regarding all aspects of the design, manufacture and operation of the product. As OPC-UA forms the backbone of the project's communication architecture, using OPCLabs' toolkit was an easy decision to make. Allowing QuickOPC to handle the heavy lifting resulted in reduced development time, reduced complexity and increased security.   Alex Godbehere MEng(Hons) MIET
