    Lightbulb OPC Clients in use by the BAS industry?

    We are proparating a release candidate of our S4 Open: OPC-N2 Router for distribution to our field test sites. As part of that process we are conducting interoperability testing between it and as many OPC clients as we can find in common use in the BAS industry. So far, we have seen success with every client that we have tested with. I'd like to expand the scope of these tests and make sure that we include any additional OPC clients that this group can recommend.
    What OPC client products should we do interoperability testing with?
    If you have recommendations can you also point me toward the right contact people within the software vendor to get access to the software for testing?

    Thanks. All input and guidance is appreciated.

    Last week we announced the release of our S4 Open: OPC-N2 Router. If you would like any details please eMail me or visit our web site. Contact information is in my profile.

    We have completed interoperability testing with the following OPC clients. There is no priority or preference implied by the order that they are listed in.
    Wonderware
    RSView
    Genesis32
    Indusoft Studio
    A-Studio
    Cimplicity
    iFIX

    We are waiting for software to arrive from several other OPC client manufacturers and will keep you updated as we complete the testing.

    Thanks for all of your previous input.

    We worked with Broadwin to complete interoperability testing between our S4 Open: OPC-N2 Router and the Broadwin WebAccess OPC client. Please contact us if you need additional information.

    We are now publishing a list of interoperability testing activities on our web site for both the S4 Open: OPC-N2 Router and the S4 Open: BACnet-N2 Router. For more information see http://www.thes4group.com/News/2009/Interop.aspx

    Let us know if there are additional clients that you would like to see us test with. My eMail address is in my profile.
