In an ideal operation, following a network failure RTUs should be able to transmit data logs that were collected while the network was offline. Moxa’s MX-AOPC UA Logger makes this not only possible, but easy. MX-AOPC UA Logger provides a standard OPC interface that interacts with MX-AOPC UA Server for real-time data collection. After each network connection, MX-AOPC UA Logger will compare historical data stored on the SD cards located in individual devices with the real time data it has already stored locally, and then supplement any missing data by requesting that the RTU retransmit the lost data. MX-AOPC UA Viewer is an OPC UA client that allows developers, testers, and integrators to easily view tag values and test MX-AOPC UA Server and connections. The viewer’s intuitive user interface makes it Simple and Easy Viewing of Tag Values and UA Server Status easy to read data and server status. With this handy client tool, users can complete OPC server settings sooner than ever. Moxa’s MX-AOPC UA Suite is designed based on the OPC Foundation’s UA (Unified Architecture) specification. OPC UA is a new technology that features more secure and reliable data communication between OPC servers and clients. It ensures protection against unauthorized access or sabotage of process data, as well as against errors due to OPC UA: The Next Generation of Interoperability, Reliability, and Security Specifications careless operation. In addition, OPC UA defines a robust architecture with reliable communication mechanisms, configurable timeouts, and automatic error detection/recovery mechanisms. By using Moxa’s MX-AOPC UA Suite, users can enjoy more secure and reliable data exchange and control.

With most remote data acquisition systems, during daily operations additional human resources are needed to collect data manually from remote storage devices for loading into a database. Even with RTUs remotely collecting data over the network, software must be developed to handle the task of converting and uploading these data logs. Moxa’s MX-AOPC UA Logger not only makes real-time data collection much easier, it also simplifies the conversion of historical data into database-ready formats. MX-AOPC UA Logger interacts directly with our MX-AOPC UA Server, working as a bridge between field data and stored databases or spreadsheets. Furthermore, the MX-AOPC client converts and uploads data logs to the central database. The MX-AOPC UA Logger can collate tags from individual Moxa RTUs or remote I/O devices into the same database or spreadsheet, freeing users from the need to manipulate data after processing.
