IC-GEN Integration Software
IC-GEN is a software application that runs on a dedicated PC platform. It operates
in a similar manner to other Satchwell Sigma integration controllers, which normally
operate on the DNN/IC hardware platform.
IC-GEN is available in two variants:
• S-ICGN-DDE interfaces to third party systems capable of Dynamic Data Exchange
(DDE) communications
• S-ICGN-OPC interfaces to third party systems that are OLE for Process Control
(OPC) compliant (OPC DA2).
Each IC-GEN connects to the Sigma network via Ethernet and appears to Sigma as a
controller, providing a means to integrate data from the DDE or OPC source.
