March 25, 2013 - FANUC FA America introduces FASOPC for easy retrieval of CNC machine production data. FASOPC is an OPC server designed specifically for getting machine production data out of a FANUC CNC and off the shop floor. OPC has been an industry standard for years, and many industrial software packages have built-in support for OPC specifically for data retrieval. These systems can now be connected to a FANUC CNC with ease. FASOPC server is designed exclusively for communicating with FOCAS enabled FANUC CNCs to efficiently read and write data. The configuration utility's intuitive user interface utilizes wizards specifically designed for the FANUC CNC to guide you through the processes of setting up all of your controls. Once a control type is identified, then data only relevant to that control type is presented to the user. There is no need for additional knowledge of FANUC CNC capabilities to use FASOPC. FASOPC supports OPC DA specification 3.0, 2.0, and 1.0 giving it the flexibility to serve data to most OPC clients on the market today.
