Opto22 Expands Communications and Integration Capabilities of OptoEMU Sensor Energy Monitoring Appliance
By ControlGlobal.com Staff
Opto 22 has expanded the communications and integration capabilities of its OptoEMU Sensor energy monitoring appliance-adding Modbus/TCP and OPC industrial protocol support, Microsoft SQL Server and Access integration, and a new Microsoft .NET developer toolkit-thereby making it easier for facility managers, energy managers and plant personnel to manage energy usage in their facilities using the hardware, interfaces, protocols and databases they know and prefer.
The OptoEMU Sensor energy monitoring appliance connects to utility meters, plant equipment and facility systems to gather real-time facility and equipment energy usage data. The Sensor's have expanded to include support for Modbus/TCP, a standard, Ethernet-based industrial communications protocol. This enhancement allows the Sensor to effectively perform in any Ethernet-based Modbus architecture-without need for translators, software development, or other middleware.
The OptoEMU Sensor also includes OPC connectivity and can communicate with any OPC client. In addition to its new communications features, the OptoEMU Sensor also offers easier Integration with Opto 22's SNAP PAC System for industrial control, including the ability to visualize real-time energy data with the free PAC Display human machine interface (HMI) software package. Sensor data can also be integrated into any PAC Control program for complete facility energy management.
The OptoEMU Sensor is available now. All new communication and interface options are included in OptoEMU Sensors shipping now. Existing OptoEMU Sensor customers can get these new options at no additional cost by downloading the OptoEMU update file from the Opto 22 website, www.opto22.com.
