Welcome to the World of OPC
This web site has been designed to provide you with everything you need to begin your OPC journey. You can learn about our organization and its history and you can learn about our technologies. You can find information on OPC products and whether those products have been certified in our test lab. If you are a developer, you can find nearly everything you need to build an OPC compliant product. If you are an end user, you can find the many resources available to you to learn how OPC can be used and what the value proposition of using OPC can mean to you.
In today’s complex economy, information is the key to business success and profitability. OPC technologies were created to allow information to be easily and securely exchanged between diverse platforms from multiple vendors and to allow seamless integration of those platforms without costly, time-consuming software development. This frees engineering resources to do the more important work of running your business. Today, there are more than 4,200 suppliers who have created more than 35,000 different OPC products used in more than 17 million applications. The estimate of the savings in engineering resources alone is in the billions of dollars.
We created this web site to enable our members and the users of our technology to stay abreast of the latest technology developments and to provide a single source where you can find the OPC information you need. We invite all of you to explore.
