Windows Based OLE and ActiveX in Logging Data to PC
Windows based applications other than OLE and ActiveX in logging data to PC
By Rushi Shroff on 3 March, 2017 - 10:30 pm

Other than OPC server (COM/DCOM), Are there any other technique to log data to PC (Windows based) from remote device?

If you are looking to log data from a PLC or a Modbus device, you can use AdvancedHMI. It has a BasicDataLogger. If that doesn't do exactly what you want, you can use a DataSubscriber and write some VB code to log exactly as you want.

We offer remote Data Acquisition modules that can be used with our EZ Datalogger software (free for up to 64 tags when using our DAQ modules).

Our ET series modules come in many different combinations of Analog and digital IO channels.

These connect to your PC directly or can be added to your Ethernet router. Then, you can connect using EZ Datalogger via Modbus TCP protocol and log data to your PC.

If you already have other software(Labview, Wonderware, Indusoft, etc.), it very likely has the ability to communicate to our modules using Modbus TCP.
