ogamma Visual Logger for OPC
Keep your data with ogamma Visual Logger for OPC,
an integration tool to collect, store, visualize and analyze industrial process control data.
- Collects industrial process control data over OPC UA connections;
- Using OPC DA to OPC UA wrapper can collect data from legacy industrial data sources too;
- Or with an additional component Prosys OPC UA Modbus Server can collect data from any legacy device supporting Modbus protocol;
- Supported storage destinations: traditional relational databases (PostgreSQL, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, SQLite) or modern time-series databases (InfluxDB, Timescale DB, Apache Kafka), or MQTT Broker (such as Eclipse Mosquitto, Microsoft Azure IoT Hub, AWS IoT Broker, Google Cloud IoT Core MQTT Bridge).
- Stored data can be visualized using open source tool Grafana;
- Stored data can be analyzed using queries;
- Secure web-based configuration GUI with user authentication and authorization;
- Unlimited duration of data storage;
- Unlimited tags;
- Millisecond resolution (with InfluxDb - microseconds resolution is supported too).
- It can be scaled vertically and horizontally.
- Runs on Linux or Windows;
- Supports Docker
- Support for secured OPC UA communication modes and UserName/Password authentication.
- Guaranteed to connect (specialized on OPC UA, modern standard IIoT communication protocol);
- High efficient Store and Forward technique allows forwarding collected data to the destination database with minimal delay (less than a second), and can store data locally for days when the connection is lost;
- Saves hardware and energy: written in modern C++, lightweight and high performant, low CPU and RAM usage at high throughputs. Single instance on embedded industrial or regular PC can serve all your needs in most cases: 100,000 variables changing every second handled easily;
- Can be installed and runs in the server, desktop PC, or industrial embedded PC; or in Docker container;
- Now available at Microsoft Azure Marketplace, and can be deployed as Azure IoT Edge Module;
- Future proof (designed to scale and expand without limits, the load can be distributed on multiple nodes);
- Quick commissioning (easy to configure using Web-based GUI);
- Cloud-ready (can be deployed in premises or in the cloud);
- Low-cost maintenance (easy deployment, upgrades, and maintenance backed by support for Docker);
ogamma Visual Logger for OPC can be used in any industry where the storage of process control data and its analysis is required and when that data is accessible over OPC UA protocol (as well as classic OPC DA using additional wrapper application). Examples of customers who use it or expressed interest on it are (not in particular order):
- Large beverages bottling plant, producing per one shift beverages enough to fill an Olympic Swimming Pool;
- Automotive supplier of powertrain and brake components for leading auto manufacturers using it in Industry 4.0 project;
- Manufacturer and global supplier of sheet metal working machinery specializing in the production of press brakes, shears, notchers, punching machines, laser cutting systems, plasma cutting machines, waterjet cutting, and Vertical Machining Centers;
- A large company providing design, fabrication and construction services on Chemical, Petrochemical, Gas, Power Plants and other Industrial Plants, to monitor data from mini wind turbines;
- Renewable energy solutions provider manufacturing large wind turbine generators;
- Research and education organizations;
- National Laboratory for Materials Science and Technology;
- National aerospace center;
- Manufacturer of special-purpose glasses: low-iron float glass for photo-voltaic and solar thermal applications, high-quality coated insulating, sound-proofing, solar-control and other types of glasses;
- Manufacturer of water recycling systems and wastewater treatment equipment;
- Steel production company;
- Design and engineering company specializing in Industrial Automation, Medical Devices and Healthcare, Storage and Computing domains;
- A large manufacturer of consumer electronics and other devices for healthcare, automotive. lighting and personal care;
- System Integrators;
- Packaging materials manufacturer;
- A company offering robotics and turn-key equipment for various production lines (palletizing, storage, sorting, internal conveyance, and others) and warehouse management systems;
- Energy services (drilling for oil and gas) company;
- and the list goes on and on.
In the road-map:
- Increase the flexibility of MQTT payloads: add support for OPC UA PubSub JSON encoded messages;
- Support for more storage destinations: SparkPlug is next in line;
- Support for all types of OPC UA user authentication modes (currently username/password is supported, support for X509 certificates and issued tokens will be added).
- Improvements for easier configuration and administration (particularly, import/export of configuration settings).
