Do i need a brand of computer(ex. Dell T3500) to run ABB Freelance 800 OPC Server or any computer can serve
Voted best answer
Normally in site the systems should run 24X7 bases with out any distrubances.
So it is recommended to use Brand PCs.
To provide better performance Brand PCs with Xeon processor is good for runnig plant.
The Hardware failures are less in barand PCs compared to other PCs.
Based on all aspects only ABB will recommend Band PCs.
I think the pc selection depends on:
The number of opc tags, and the refrashing rate.
The pc will be the unique aplication on it or are you going to use it for other application.
The number of connection that it has to handle. etc.
But Freelance opc cab run perfect on almost any pc.
