CC-Link’s OPC UA companion widening IIoT machine connectivity

Moreover The CC-Link Organisation (CLPA), and the OPC Foundation, announced a companion specification. Thus ensuring widening IIoT machine connectivity, it simplifies IIoT and Industry 4.0 implementations.   It does this by providing a unified interface between devices and IT at production sites. This simplifies the IIoT machine connectivity required for Smart Factories, and improves productivity […]

Developing empowerment in IIoT

    IIoT is changing manufacturing, and as its adoption accelerates, it will bring new challenges for producers. But even with all the benefits of connectivity it provides, most industrial operations risk performing sub-optimally. Significantly, it will dramatically impact on the new generation of engineers and workers that control it. Schneider Electric argues that the […]
