Product Overview

The Advanced Simulator driver was designed to plug into our industrial based communications server products. These products supply reliable data access to any HMI, SCADA, Historian, or Enterprise application supporting OPC, DDE, FastDDE, and SuiteLink. This driver provides single-point access to multiple ODBC data sources via ODBC. The driver simulates live data by traversing through all the records in a selected table at a rate set by the user.


  • Supports the option to automatically start at the first record when all the records in the table have been read or stop once the last record has been reached
  • Supports the internal tag (MoveTo) so the user can move to any specified record at any time
  • Multiple connection sessions to multiple ODBC data sources
  • OPC DA
  • Tags updated regularly from the database
  • CSV import and export for manipulating large numbers of tags easily
