The MSI-UA-DA-NICE consist of the programs MSI-UA-SERVER,
MSINiceDaOPCServer and MSI-UA-DA-NICE. MSI-UA-SERVER is based on the Unified Architechure (UA) spezification of the OPC
Foundation. The client MSI-UA-DA-NICE is based on UA and on the DA
specification. It's possible to buy the complete package or each software
MSI-UA-DA-NICE has more or less the same functionality then the MSI-NICE has,
but the software can be connected to several UA and / or DA - clients at the
Until October 2012 special upgrade prices are available for all who want to upgrade

MSI-UA-SERVER software has already several build-in communication drivers for the communication
with different device types. So all versions include the following drivers:
ISO1745 - communication protocol for the PMA - Devices(KS40, KS90, KS92, KS94, KS98, Digital 380 and others)
Modbus RTU. To simplify the communication already for several Modbus
devices the main parameters are in an integrated database, so for the following
devices: KS40-1, KS50-1, KS90-1, KS3000, KS3010. Also for E-Bloxx A1-1, E-Bloxx
A4-1, E-Bloxx D1-1 and further devices.
Modbus on TCP/IP
PROFIBUS: With this driver many different devices can be used with
MSI-NICE (S7 SPS and many others). For using profibus a profibus card of the company
Hilscher is necessary.
CSV-File: Reading data fron data in a CSV file. So also older data can be read and added to the MSI-History. Different type of CSV files are possible,
FTP-Server: The software has an integrated FTP-Server, which can be use for uploading or downloading files to or from the MSI-UA-SERVER.
On request also other drivers can be implemented in the software.
The server can communicate via upto 64 different infaces as it were parallel.
MSI-UA-SERVER can store the measured data in historical files. UA-Clients can
request the historical raw data or the processed data (average, total,
minimum, maximum etc) from MSI_UA-SERVER.
MSI-UA-SERVER and MSI-UA-DA-NICE are already successfully tested at the following
