LinkMaster provides a means of linking data between OPC servers, thus serving as a universal bridge for OPC systems. LinkMaster acts as both an OPC server and DDE server, allowing it to bridge legacy DDE systems and new OPC-enabled applications.
Programming Knowledge Optional
LinkMaster is a fast and robust Windows application that requires no programming knowledge. Simply “Drag and Drop” to create your links. Built-in scaling, user-access manager, error tracking, and write optimization capabilities provide total control of your data flow and application access.
Control Data Transfers with Link Groups
Link Groups are used to form collections of OPC items that will be moved between OPC servers at a specified rate. Using multiple Link Groups, LinkMaster allows you to control how fast data is transferred from one OPC server to another. By using Link Groups with different update rates, you can tailor your data transfers to fit the needs of the application. While one item may need to be sent at high speed, other items in the application may need slower update rates. Link Groups gives you that control. The benefit is reduced network traffic and increased reliability.
