Add advanced analysis and control functionality - through NI LabVIEW software and programmable automation controllers (PACs) - to any programmable logic controller (PLC) using the NI OLE for process control (OPC) servers. In this webcast, learn how to create tags in OPC servers and use OPC client connectivity to communicate between LabVIEW and PLCs. Also find out about using the OPC UA specification on real-time OSs.

Could have expanded on direct connection with OPC  - Oct 2, 2014

The tutorial focuses on using OPC with OPC server and skips over direct OPC connection. Are we to assume that the procedure is the same?

A bit rushed in places but a good starting point  - Jun 11, 2014

Thanks for this, it gives a nice whistle-stop tour of the technology. It would be nice though if people mentioned what OPC stood for, especially in a tutorial.

VERY NICE.....  - Dec 17, 2013

Thanks for such a nice presentation cum demo..... After 16 min of webinar I am able to connect my Siemens plc with labview....

Could be half as long  - Feb 16, 2011

Unfortunately, the first 8 minutes are a LabVIEW advertisement. The second half of the webcast is excellent. That is where he finally starts talking about Connecting LabVIEW to OPC.

what about other OS ?  - Jul 23, 2009

Does all this technology work on other OS. It is really contraddictory to talk about real-time when running on a non-real time OS such as Windows. So I wonder if there is a way to work with labview and PLC using a real real-time OS, such as Solaris or Linux SLERT or RedHat MRG .
