Take the load off of your DCS with MatrikonOPC Calculator RT
MatrikonOPC Calculator can be used to reduce the calculations performed by an overloaded DCS. Calculations can be transferred into OPC Calculator to be manipulated in real-time, and once manipulated the data can be reloaded into the DCS. This reduces the load on the DCS, increasing system throughput and ultimately making your process more efficient.
