OLE Automation - What is it?
Knowledge Base

Automation Media's recommended most important key terminologies you need to know if you work in Automation, Controls, Brilliant Manufacturing, Operational & Industrial Intelligence or IoT etc. ; regardless of any vendor(s) you are dealing (Allen Bradley, GE Fanuc, Siemens, Modicon, Mitsubishi, Omron, Automation Direct etc).


OLE Automation and the underlying COM technologies were designed by Microsoft to allow components (written in C and C++) to be used by a custom program (written in Visual Basic or Delphi).This model provides a precise match for the needs of the processcontrol industry, with hardware developers writing software components in C and C++ for handling data access from a device.Through OPC, application developers can write code in any language necessary to request and utilize plant-floor data.
