    I have started to look at using the CBus OPC server on a large project which currently uses the old C-Lution driver to talk to Citect.

    I have some questions:
    1. Is the OPC server being actively used? There don't seem to be many queries here which suggests either a lack of users or a lack of issues!
    2. Is it actively maintained? I see the last release was 2012.
    3. Is there any way to retrieve the following via OPC?
      • Unit status
      • Network voltages
      • Light levels
      If not, are there plans to add them, and if so on what time frame? Or should I expect to continue to use the C-Lution driver for data points it can give me that OPC can't?
    4. What sort of performance can I expect compared with the old C-Lution driver? (35 networks via CNIs, almost all control would be via the OPC interface)
    5. All things considered, would this be a recommended upgrade?
