OptoDataLink, part of the PAC Project Professional Software Suite, provides data exchange between groov EPIC processors or the SNAP PAC System and popular databases such as Microsoft(R) SQL Server, Microsoft Access, and MySQL. OptoDataLink connects your SNAP PAC System with the tools used for making business decisions.
NOTE: OptoDataLink is compatible with groov EPIC but may not be needed because the advanced groov EPIC system includes multiple data exchange methods.
OptoDataLink is available separately or as part of PAC Project Professional. Complete documentation is included in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. The download file includes other PAC Project software in addition to OptoDataLink.
To find out if you can upgrade to this version for free, see the Opto 22 Software Upgrade Policy.
If you are using older (not groov EPIC, groov RIO, or SNAP PAC) controllers or brains with PAC Project, see the SNAP PAC System Migration Technical Note (form 1688) for important information.
