Visual Components partners with Software Toolbox for OPC Solutions

Visual Components Oy and Software Toolbox Inc. are proud to announce a cooperation agreement where INGEAR OPC Servers will be available as a trial version for customers using Visual Components PLC Add-on software.

Visual Components' PLC Add-on software connects their 3DCreate digital factory model with the INGEAR OPC servers, allowing controls engineers to simulate and verify new production logics destined for the shop-floor very cost effectively.  The INGEAR OPC Servers provide standards based connectivity to Rockwell/Allen-Bradley, Modicon/Schneider, Omron, and GE Fanuc PLCs for the Visual Components PLC Add-on software.

Visual Components PLC Add-on introduces control validation to the design process. Control engineers can test shop floor logics in a safe and convenient environment at full production speeds. Errors are caught in the digital factory instead of during installation and ramp-up. This shortens the overall project time significantly. "We chose the INGEAR OPC server product line as it comes with excellent customer support from Software Toolbox, was easy to implement and it supports a variety of different PLC controllers" says Craig Lybeck, Visual Components Sales Director.
