  • DataNet OPC Web-based Data Monitoring Software
    [AutomationDirect  longer carries this package; this software is now available directly from the vendor,]

    DataNetThis innovative OPC data communication software gives you instant access to operational data - from anywhere…using any Web browser!

    You can now make industrial data more accessible and useful to those who need it. DataNet OPC uses OPC technology to display real-time data from industrial devices on a live Web page. The data is then available for viewing and printing reports from any computer, anywhere the Internet or company intranet is accessible. DataNet OPC makes industrial data collection and archiving simple. In addition to displaying data conveniently on a Web page, there are DataNet OPC packages available which will log data into a text file for archival purposes.

  • DataLynx - Remote Modem Data Collection Software
    [AutomationDirect  longer carries this package; this software is now available directly from the vendor,]

    DataLynxDataLynx data collection software is an inexpensive data logging and storage package for programmable logic controllers (PLCs) using a PC. Any PLC or other device that supports MODBUS, along with a modem connection, works well with DataLynx. This software package is an ideal data logger solution for collecting data from remote locations or relaying data from multiple locations back to a single location to be stored. DataLynx data logger polls remote MODBUS-enabled devices over standard phone lines using off-the-shelf modems.

  • DataWorx Software: Connect Ethernet-enabled PLCs for easy data collection
    [AutomationDirect  longer carries this package; this software is now available directly from the vendor,]

    DataWorxAutomationDirect has teamed up with BizWareDirect to offer its customers DataWorx data collection software for AutomationDirect PLCs and WinPLCs. Before DataWorx, it was necessary to purchase an OPC DDE server, and write code or buy a Human Machine Interface (HMI) package to program, in order to collect data from our PLCs/ WinPLCs. The DataWorx data logger software package easily connects your Ethernet-enabled DirectLOGIC programmable logic controllers (PLCs), or WinPLCs, to standalone PCs or network servers for simple data logging. Now, DataWorx PLC makes it simple and cost effective to easily collect valuable data to enable you to make better business decisions.

  • KEPDirect OPC Server Software
    [more info.] [specs PDF] [purchase]
    KEPDirect PLCThe KEPDirect OPC Server software provides a way to connect your favorite Windows client software to AutomationDirect communication-enabled devices such as programmable controllers, remote I/O and variable frequency drives (VFDs).
