Abstract: For their importance in the mining industry of copper in the south of the Ecuador, an application of a system of OPC is presented that transfers the copper mineral extracted using the action of a motor of C.A, which moves a transportable band. The programs MATLAB® and LabVIEW® possess an academic profile and for this reason, they have a very limited use inside this technology OPC. Also, these are part of the school formation of the students of the career of Electromechanical Engineering of the National University of Loja (UNL) in the Ecuador. Keeping in mind that pointed out, these programs will use the mark of the technology OPC in the process of extraction of the copper mineral. Finally, a comparison of the found results with these two programs is made
