The first sample OPC (OLE for Process Control) code has been put onto the World Wide Web for free access, by Intellution. You’ll find it at www.Intellution.com/opcsample.html.

Downloading the code will enable systems engineers to create their own OLE servers as a source for real time data. According to Intellution: `This early sample code provides a foundation for an OPC server’. In fact, it’s flexible and easy to use – having been designed to let you `fill in the blanks’ to get an interface up and running fast.

You get seamless connectivity between OPC compatible applications – for example MMI screens, historical/reporting software and recipe applications – like Intellution’s own recently introduced VisualBatch batch process control package.
