This represents the first in a series of xCoupler enterprise transaction modules that snap into the backplane of controllers. To eliminate PC-based interfaces that are commonly used to transfer data, xCoupler communicates directly from ControlLogix to enterprise servers in their native language. Popular server communications interfaces currently available for the xCoupler include IBM® WebSphere® MQ and DB2, Oracle®, Microsoft® SQL, SMTP, and TCP/IP. Additional enterprise interfaces are currently being developed for other server applications.
