Coupling production and SAP®-systems
The OPC router plug-in enables you to connect your production processes with the most frequently used ERP-system worldwide. Instead of complex SAP® solutions, you use standard interfaces. You don’t need any programming knowledge, you just create the connection via graphical configuration.
Synchronous communication between SAP®-system and PLC via BAPI/RFC, asynchronous communication via IDocs is possible. There is no limit to the number of data points and connections. A transfer call is also possible from SAP®-system via RFC.
