OmniServer Concepts - Why Do I Need OmniServer?

OmniServer Does What Other OPC Servers/Drivers Can't

Unlike off-the-shelf OPC servers and drivers that talk to specific devices or protocols and no others, OmniServer can be configured to talk to virtually any device or combination of devices (based on the complexity of the protocol).

Accomplished without custom code or the need to know how to develop, OmniServer allows you to build a custom driver or protocol based on documentation about a device's protocol format.  Find Out How!

OmniServer helps you bring data that would otherwise be inaccessible into your process and business systems, helping you make more effective decisions.  And OmniServer does this at a lower cost and greater reliability than traditional custom solutions.

OmniServer Helps You Avoid Costly and Time-Consuming Custom Development

Traditionally, to connect non-standard devices like barcode scanners, scales, printers, etc. it would be necessary to use one of the following methods:

  • Custom developed code
    • High time to develop
    • Not sustainable
    • High Total Cost of Ownership
  • Interfacing through PLC code
    • Limited Access to Device Data
    • Higher PLC & I/O Costs
    • Less flexibility

OmniServer is a cost-effect and reliable alternative to spending your time (and money) on custom developed device drivers or complicated or unreliable workarounds involving PLC code or I/O.

You can develop your protocol in OmniServer and have it deal with all the nuances of device communications and data delivery. Less time spent on device communications means more time (and money) for the more important tasks in project management.

Get Started Now

The demo is the full product once licensed. Once a client application connects to the OmniServer, the OmniServer runtime will operate for 2 hours at a time. At the end of the 2 hour demo period, the demo timer must be reset by restarting the OmniServer runtime.
