OPC stands for OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) for Process Control. In general, OPC technology provides the ability to easily interconnect various devices or software packages from different vendors in a system. The philosophy behind OPC is that it should be as easy to add a PLC to a certain system, as it is to add a printer or graphics card.
