The OPC Server for SNMP provides connectivity to SNMP compliant devices such as network switches, UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply) systems, media converters and other network devices. The OPC Server enables full monitoring and control of SNMP-enabled devices from any OPC compliant application such as IT Management Systems and HMIs. The SNMP protocol is typically used in the IT networking environment and is useful for both IT and plant-floor operators to diagnose problems. For example, did a PLC really go off-line or is it the network hub? By monitoring the network hub problems can be diagnosed much more quickly and therefore rectified more quickly. The OPC Server for SNMP helps to bridge together the plant-floor operation with the IT operation so both parties have the information they need to monitor equipment and diagnose problems.
