May 28, 2014 – MatrikonOPC released the enhanced MatrikonOPC Server for Foxboro I/A, which now includes support for Foxboro I/A Series systems version 8.8. The MatrikonOPC Server for Foxboro I/A securely facilitates communication between OPC-enabled client software, such as HMIs, historian’s and reporting software, and Foxboro I/A devices. Recently, Invensys announced the deprecation of FoxAPI beginning in version 8.8 of Foxboro I/A. This update allows users of Foxboro I/A 8.8 and above to continue to utilise OPC-based communication by leveraging the AIM API. For customers who use MatrikonOPC products as part of their existing systems, Matrikon ported their products to the preferred APIs (Application Programming Interface) in support of I/A Series systems version 8.8 and the migration of those systems to Microsoft Windows 7 & Microsoft Server 2008 R2 operating systems.. Key features of the MatrikonOPC Server for Foxboro I/A include:
- Support for FoxAPI, Object Manager and AIM API;
- Integrated OPC security;
- Real-time (DA) and Historical (HDA) OPC data access;
- Built-in alias configuration.
