OmniServer's connectivity and data parsing capabilities are only part of how OmniServer helps with integrating non-standard devices with external software such as HMI, SCADA, MES, historians and other client application.  How does the device data actually make it into the client?

Watch this video to learn how to connect any OPC UA (Data Access Profile) client application to OmniServer, including basic setup, for integrating your non-standard devices without code.  Looking for other how-to videos for OmniServer?  Click here!
