Embedded OPC UA server offers data integration
04 April 2014
Softing Industrial Automation has introduced echocollect UA, a standardised solution for the acquisition and management of process, manufacturing and quality data via an embedded OPC Unified Architecture (UA) Server.
echocollect UA has been designed as a versatile gateway with an OPC UA interface. It independently collects data from PLCs and delivers this to higher-level management systems such as ERP or MES directly, via the integrated embedded OPC UA server.
Whereas PC-based solutions generally require a regular update of the operating system, echocollect UA is able to work for many years untouched and with no maintenance effort.
The OPC UA protocol allows simple local and global networking without OPC tunneling and without the complicated DCOM configuration encountered by OPC Classic, even across firewalls and the Internet.
