As systems become more complex, the ability to move information in real-time between systems becomes more important. The XL Bolt-On Data Link provides the tools to move data from automation devices to XLs on the manufacturing floor. The PLC Data Link allows real-time reading of data from any OPC Server. If your PLC has Ethernet, you can integrate this data with your Vorne XL using the PLC Data Link. The Software Data Link provides both an engine and ODBC connectivity to link XL with your databases and other back-end IT systems. Advanced scripting with the C#/VB.net tools in the Software Data Link allow advanced customization.
