The integration of the OPC into a network is a complex task, the solution of which makes many users experience serious problems. They are caused by DCOM. The network protocol creates a lot of difficulties when using the modern technology for industrial automation. It does not provide data transfer in real time, consumes large amounts of traffic, and has security gaps. Tunnelers will help to solve the problems.
OPC tunneling allows you to exclude DCOM. In most cases, the network protocol is replaced with the TCP. This solution increases the security of data transmission, as all information is sent in encrypted form.
Multiple connections overload the network. When using OPC tunneling, users do not directly connect to the server but use a local app. It can accept a huge number of requests from any clients. When connecting new OPC clients, the network load does not increase. Therefore, the use of tunnelers is especially important in limited-resource systems.
When using multiple connections, you need to check for cross-user interaction. There are tunnelers that sequentially process requests when connecting a large number of clients. Serialization significantly reduces the efficiency of this solution. If any OPC client sends a request that needs substantial time for processing, then all the others will have to queue. They will be blocked, which will negatively affect the system`s performance.

I use the OPC Server as part of a dispatch system for an individual heat point in a business center. The program works with controllers via RS-232 ports. This solution has a lot of advantages. Remote parameter monitoring is available. The created system provides convenient...
We bought the OPC Server and OPC Client about three years ago. We decided to modernize the pumping station. In this regard, we had to improve the performance of the control room. Previously, our employees made the rounds every half an hour: they recorded water meter...
