OPC UA Moves Information Everywhere

The theme of the OPC booth at this year's ISA Expo in Chicago is the demonstration of the secure, reliable interoperability of OPC Unified Architecture.

The OPC Foundation is unveiling Phase One of the OPC Unified Architecture at the ISA Expo 2005, October 25 through 27 in Chicago, with a live, multi-vendor demonstration of OPC Unified Architecture. The demonstration features products from participating vendors that are OPC Unified Architecture enabled, including: Canary Labs, Cyberlogic, Kepware, Matrikon, Mitsubishi, Rockwell Automation, Siemens, Softing, Software Toolbox, Wonderware and Yokogawa.

This demonstration takes existing OPC DCOM-based (Distributed Component Object Model) products and transforms them into products that are part of the information solution for enterprise-wide communication. Collaboration and partnership has been the key enabler for OPC Unified Architecture in the initial development phases. The demonstration will highlight the use of OPC Unified Architecture wrappers, which have been developed by the OPC Unified Architecture early adopter team (a multi-vendor cooperative development effort). The OPC Unified Architecture wrapper allows existing OPC clients and OPC servers to very easily become OPC Unified Architecture capable, providing 24/7 secure reliable interoperability to end-users.

This is a unique opportunity to see the unveiling and power of the OPC Unified Architecture, and the commitment and collaboration between the vendors and standards organizations to achieve the end-users’ dream of secure, reliable interoperability. Stop by the ISA Expo OPC booth for your personal demonstration.

If you can't make it to the ISA Expo, don't miss the next issue of OPConnect in December. The success of this multi-vendor demonstration at ISA will be reported, including highlights of OPC UA platform and Expo attendee reaction to this important development.
