What's the best way to pass data back and forth from third party apps to Ovation? OPC? ODBC?
I have an optimization model that will be running on an Ovation Historian and I need to pull live data from the system and write optimal results to an operator screen. Are there .NET paths to Ovation?
Travis - You mention a few different variables in your question, including the Ovation Historian. Certainly there are numerous connectivity options with Ovation, including OPC and ODBC as you suggested.
Since you specifically state: “I need to pull live data from the system and write”
…the Ovation OPC Data Access Server would probably be the most appropriate solution for the scenario that you describe. It is compliant with the OPC DA specification.
