Problem Description

Does SCADAConnect support a connection to ClearSCADA?


SCADAConnect allows the interaction with any SCADA system that supports database like Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel. SCADAConnect also supports database connectivity (ODBC) interface, OLE DB interface or Structured Query Language (SQL) connection interface. Citect's native application program interface (API) is used to allow access to data sampled by the Citect server. SCADAConnect can also import data from a real time or historical OPC server.

To use SCADAConnect, the user must identify the properties of the data source being used. If the data source is a data base, as opposed to an OPC server, then the user must first define the connection, which essentially identifies the type of data format (e.g. Excel, Access, ODBC) and the path to that data. If the data source is an OPC server, there is no need to set up a connection as the user need only name the computer on which the OPC server is located and the name of the OPC server. A database source refers to the data being stored in a file.
