August 23, 2011 - Control-See announced today that their U.C.ME-OPC version 2010 SP5 has successfully passed the vigorous testing of the OPC Foundation Certification Test Lab and is now certified.

Independent Test Lab OPC Certification is the process of ensuring that applications meet the standards specified by the OPC Foundation. OPC Certification requires extensive testing to ensure true interoperability. OPC Certification means multi-vendor system interoperability is guaranteed. If your OPC products are not certified, you need to ask your vendor what sort of guarantees they offer.

Functions include: Remote control Innovative capability enables flexible two-way communication. Remote control also provides the capability to change set-points, query field values, suspend or resume alarm notification and more.

Sophisticated escalation procedure U.C.ME-OPC employs an escalation procedure that can be customized to ensure alerts are delivered to alternative recipients. Remote alarm acknowledgement prevents unnecessary repeat alarm notifications – reducing nuisance alarms and reducing costs.

Detailed, real-time alarm analysis U.C.ME-OPC analyzes the critical parameter data of an alarm, compares the values with the desired range, and marks the parameters that don’t comply. This real-time information is sent directly to a cell phone, pager or emai and is stored in a database for offline analysis.

Multiple OPC-server connectivity U.C.ME-OPC communicates with multiple OPC servers and with industrial automation software (SCADA) via OPC or DDE. U.C.ME-OPC will automatically reconnect after a power outage or after an OPC server software has stopped.

Easy alarm import from SCADA U.C.ME-OPC allows for alarm import from SCADA with one click of a button.

Runs as a Microsoft Windows service The service operates before a user has logged in and continues to operate after the user has logged off. If the service fails, recovery actions can be set up, such as restarting the service automatically or restarting the computer.   U.C.ME-OPC’s functionality makes it suitable for building management, oil and gas works, power stations, water works and sewage treatment plants, factories and production lines, fire detection control systems, healthcare, food and pharmaceuticals (including FDA 21 CFR Part 11 compliance), and more.
