New OPC UA Products

This month’s new products include a new suite to send OPC UA information over MQTT, a Wrapper that converts OPC classic into OPC UA, native OPC UA implementation into a popular server, and a multi-protocol gateway with OPC UA capability.

Hilscher’s netIOT Edge Gateway monitors field data over existing Real-Time Ethernet networks (shown as solid grey lines), such as EtherNet/IP and PROFINET, and communicates OPC UA data over a separate TCP channel (shown as dotted red lines) on the RTE network.

New Products supporting OPC UA

Three new products with OPC UA capability are highlighted this month. The first is the Glance graphical visualization client from ECG that supports OPC. Second is the updated netIOT gateway from Hilscher that brings IT systems and OT systems closer together. Third is the eWON Flexy M2M router and gateway with OPC Foundation-certified OPC UA capability.

Tunnel Project [Case Study] and 11 Products

The Gotthard Base Tunnel in Switzerland, when open this June, at 57 km will be the longest railway tunnel in the world. OPC UA was defined as the standardized interface between the tunnel management system and the electromechanical systems. Given the need to integrate sixteen different facilities from different suppliers, it was vital to use a platform-neutral, standardized and uniform protocol. This case study from Siemens is accompanied by a list of 11 of their products with OPC UA on board.
