Interest in recent OPC Foundation events has reached a fever pitch. At the 1st Interoperability Conference World in April, 32 individual groups participated representing the entire spectrum of industry. In May, at OPC Day Automotive, 300+ attendees learned about OPC UA as the link between IT and factory in automotive manufacturing. In July, OPC Foundation presents a series of events across Asia.
Join the OPC Foundation and a host of co-presenters at the World Interoperability Conference, held in conjunction with Hannover Fair. This watershed event takes place April 1st in Hall 19/20 Room New York from 12:00 – 15:30. It is free of charge to attend, but pre-registration is required.
The OPC Foundation will have four stops on a North American seminar tour: Montreal, QC; Cleveland, OH; Chicago, IL; and Morris Plains, NJ. Also in September, OPC will attend the Industry of Things World – Europe event in Berlin, Germany. In October, two conferences are planned in Pune and Bangalore, India with the VDMA.
The OPC UA machine vision and robotics working groups have released the first versions of their companion specifications at the automation trade fair Automatica in Munich, Germany.
The OPC Foundation conducts and attends numerous events throughout the year that showcase OPC technology and its member’s solutions. These include trade shows, conferences, technology training, interoperability events, and attendance at select member functions.
The event schedule for the months of September and October are particularly busy for the OPC Foundation. Events will be hosted in Taiwan, USA, Canada, and Germany. Plus we are putting on a series of cannot-miss webinars. Come meet us and get trained or get involved!
The OPC Foundation North America Seminar Tour dates have been announced. This seminar tour will focus on the rich feature set of OPC UA and the unique ways these features are put to use in real applications. Beeond’s OPC UA Developer training is offered in conjunction with three of the OPC Foundation Seminars. This hands-on developer training educates attendees on the technical aspects of the standard, so they have the knowledge to make good decisions in designing and delivering a Certified OPC UA product.
Industrie 4.0 with its mandatory requirement of OPC UA is focused on security and high efficiency in manufacturing. Therefore it is no wonder that the OPC Foundation has created an official office in South Korea and will be making waves at Hannover Messe later this month.
At OPC Day Europe, there were many interesting talks about OPC UA and its applicability into a variety of environments. If you weren’t able to make it to the event, relevant videos are released here for catching up.
