The SSE-OPC Server has 2 main functions:
- The SSE-OPC receives all the raw data in all the different protocols and processes it to a language that can be understood by the SCADA.
- The logged data is transferred to the Logging Data Base, and the operational data to the SCADA.
- The entire configuration done for each outstation is held in the Configuration Data Base. That means that if an Outstation RTU goes faulty the configuration is still backed up on the OPC and can simply be down loaded to a new RTU and the faulty one can be replaced.
- All the different protocols supported by SSE resides on the SSE-OPC and by means of the Communication Orchestrator the SSE-RTU can be set up to communicate in virtually any hardware medium and on any of the supported protocols.
