Create OPC objects

Create OPC objects in the hardware tree with custom icons and hierarchical structure. Full permissions control is available for all objects so that operators can be restricted from receiving messages or controlling each object individually.

Custom Control Menus

Administrators can create custom control menus for each OPC object allowing operators to perform actions by writing tag values back to the OPC Server. Menus can be customized for each type of object and map icons can be designated for reactions to enable individual control commands.

Value thresholds

Value thresholds can be defined and assigned to any OPC object in the system. Data Access tag values are monitored at the selected time interval and if a value is found within a pre-defined range, APACS displays a custom message at Alarm Mode monitoring stations. No Alarm & Event server is required, APACS generates alarms based on your criteria.
