OPC UA server available as standard feature on NJ series controllers for IIOT applications.
January 29, 2018
Omron Automation’s NJ5 controller now comes standard with OPC UA server functionality.
OPC UA is an industrial communication protocol that enables data exchange between machines and from machine to IT systems. This international standard is well linked to Industry 4.0 and also serves as a basis for the packaging standard PackML. Since the adoption of this open standard is increasing worldwide, Omron Automation is implementing this as a standard feature on our Sysmac controllers, starting with the NJ5.
Key benefits to customers include:
Ease of communication from plant floor machines to IT Systems.
Data security through encryption and authentication.
Reliable and widely adopted standard available on a machine controller eliminating the need for middleware PCs and simplifying IIOT implementation projects.
Currently, this feature comes standard in the following models:
