The OPC UA
Companion Specification for Machine Vision (OPC UA
Machine Vision for short) offers a generic model for all machine vision systems - from simple vision sensors to complex inspection systems.
The intelligent components and system solutions support all relevant real-time Ethernet protocols and OPC UA
. Bosch and Bosch Rexroth have already implemented more than 100 projects around the factory of the future in their own plants.
The controller contains three Ethernet ports and an OPC UA
server interface in a 66 mm-wide housing.
The app can also leverage existing data points if desired, using OPC UA
to collect data stored in the control system, historian or data base if access is available.
All control of the machine and communication to the PLC is handled via OPC UA
. The Hapa Human Machine Interface (HMI) also communicates with the PLC via OPC UA
Kaspersky Lab ICS CERT has analyzed the OPC UA
(Object Linking and Embedding for Process Control Unified Automation) protocol, which is designed for secure data transfer between servers and clients in industrial systems, including critical infrastructure.
Euromap 77, a successor to Euromap 63, is based on OPC UA
, internationally recognized process control software that converts the communications from a conventional machine programmable logic controller (PLC) to the OPC protocol.
Cipher Connect supports a wide range of communication protocols including MQTT, OPC UA
, OPC DA, Modbus, BACnet, Ethernet IP, Allen Bradley and MT Connect for connecting almost any asset or device.
Moxa, which provides products for industrial networking, computing, and automation, has described the OPC Foundation's OPC UA
(Unified Architecture) M2M protocol as a method of bridging the OT and IT worlds.
Features enhance interoperability with standard IP and standard communications protocols such as IEC 61131-3, OPC UA
and the secure DDS messaging standard.
