OPC Client relationship with StruxureWare Building Operation


Neither the OPC server nor the DDE configuration is supported at this time. The OPC Sever is a software program that converts hardware communication protocol into the OPC protocol. The OPC client software is any program that needs to connect to the hardware. The OPC client uses the OPC server to get data from or send commands to the hardware. There is not currently a roadmap for direct OPC client capability within StruxureWare Building Operation.
