SIMATIC OPC UA
Support for standardized connections – regardless of the platform
Industrie 4.0 / Industrial IoT
As part of digitalization, the networking and communication of a wide range of systems play a key role.
Interoperability between production and the IT level
Data from the production and process level is made available at the company level, resulting in everything from ensured product quality to optimized production.
Networking of a wide range of devices and systems
An independent and open standard is required to network systems from a wide range of platforms (PC, SPS, HMI, tablets, etc.). A semantic description of the data has been integrated to ensure that the data from a wide range of systems and manufacturers can be clearly interpreted.
As part of networking across plant sections, the topic of data security is becoming increasingly important. This topic ranges from access protection to secure transmission methods, particularly via the Internet.
An open communication standard for I4.0 communication concepts. As a supplement to PROFINET, OPC UA offers a convenient interface to third-party providers and for connection to higher-level systems such as Scada, MES, and to a cloud.
