Because we understand the importance of this type of machine-to-machine communication, we are a class A member of the OPC Foundation and committed to establishing one common language for all equipment in a factory.
Standardization, however, is only one benefit of OPC UA technology. In a world in which hackers get more sophisticated and more and more equipment is online, the security of sensitive machines also has to improve. The OPC UA technology does just that. It is encrypted and security is built into the design.
In addition, its plug and play installation makes the setup and harmonization with other equipment extremely easy.
Finally, the use of OPC UA technology will make it much easier to gather data from all of the different machines and optimize operations.
