Communication drivers

VisiWin is an open system that does not tie you to particular panels. This is of course also true for the communication with your chosen automation hardware such as control and drive systems.

In consequence, the communication channels are not predetermined but open and configurable. You have a choice between our VisiWinNET drivers or the standardized OPC servers (Classic and/or UA).

Of course the drivers developed by us are particularly well matched to the VisiWinNET runtime system, and ideally designed for optimum performance, stability and diagnosis features.

You can connect VisiWin with many different control and automation appliances. Simultaneously, too ...

A client for OPC DA and OPC UA connectivity to the latest standard is arbitrarily included in the system and does not need to be additionally licensed.

You could not find your system?

Contact us. VisiWin provides many more drivers, also for prior automation systems. And the list is growing steadily...

Even linking to a proprietary system is possible. To develop an individual driver a driver toolkit is available that allows you to sinply develop your own driver in C# based on Microsoft.NET. Of course we can do that for you, too.
