PC integration middleware to realize communication
with automation devices in various equipment

  • Features
  • Specifications
  • Provider list


ORiN2 SDK is "PC Integration Middleware" for software development based on the standard middleware specification "ORiN" for factory information system.

With this middleware, users easily control various automation devices and develop equipment information collection systems by using computer general programming languages.
Also, this middleware has development assistance functions to realize connection with various automation devices and integration with other communication standards.

Providing standard interfaces

To make the system development of distributed object technology-supporting systems (such as DCOM, SOAP) easy, two types of standard interfaces are prepared; for application and for device.

Application reuse

Providing a common gateway for different communication specifications improves the reusability of existing application.

Development tool options

OLE (COM, Active-X) -supported development tools are available.
●Visual C++  ●C++ Builder  ●Visual Basic  ●Delphi  ●LabVIEW  ●Excel  etc.

Create original provider

With "Provider Wizard", users can create original provider for function expansion.

  1. *1. EXE type COM component. It is middleware that implements ORiN interface and works as a core of ORiN. It provides common function and ORiN interface for client.
  2. *2. DLL type COM component. It is communication interface connecting automation devices and computers. It absorbs the communication specification differences among devices.
  3. *3. Gateway module for ORiN that provides OPC server functions.
  4. *4. Gateway module for ORiN that provides OPC UA server functions. If you use CaoOPCUA, you need to prepare an OPC UA server license separately.
  5. *5. It is middleware for data management that collects data from various automation devices and provides the collected data to the client application of CaoSQL (e.g., operation management and production instruction software).
  6. *6. Gateway module for ORiN that provides UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) device functions.
  7. *7. Simple program development environment. Users can develop simple application programs with script language (CaoScript).
  8. *8. Only CaoConfig, and CaoTester are offered.
