The OPC Foundation is a main sponsor of the Achema Pulse 2021 !

The OPC Foundation is exhibiting at Achema for the first time because of the relevance and importance of OPC UA technology. But wait: “Data is the new currency” and “Protocols will play a subordinate role in the future” – right? So why does OPC UA play a key role in digital transformation? Because OPC UA is not just a protocol, but much more.

Let’s learn about the essential factors and the most important enablers for digitalization – please join our 2 live panel discussions, 10 presentations, 3 workshops:

    Validation and Certification of your OPC UA enabled Products

    by Alexander Allmendinger, Test Lab Manager, European Certification Lab, OPC Foundation. Learn how to check the OPC UA integration into your products. As part of this, we will introduce our automated testing tool which is available to all our paying and non-paying members to ensure a high quality of their products. This tool just recently has been extended to also cover the important specifications for the process industry like:

      • OPC UA over APL
      • Dexpi Information Model
      • MDIS Information Model
      • PA-DIM Information Model
      • OPC UA for machinery
    • Of course, we will also provide information needed to get your products certified.

 

  • June 15th: 19:45 – 20:30 CEST
    OPC UA based Condition Monitoring in the Cloud in 1 hour

    by Erich Barnstedt, Chief Architect Standards & Consortia, Azure IoT, Microsoft
    Learn how OPC UA can be used to connect manufacturing assets to the cloud, send OPC UA telemetry from these machines to the cloud for condition monitoring and OEE calculation and how to store OPC UA telemetry in a time-series cloud database for later analysis using AI. You will also learn about the benefits of uploading the standardized OPC UA information model to the cloud for semantic lookups and the work done within the OPC Foundation to standardize this. Finally, you will learn how to complete the digital feedback loop and continuously optimize your manufacturing processes by sending OPC UA commands from the cloud back to your machines.
