MTConnect Technical Webinars | Demonstration of a 100% Configurable OPC UA Server with an MTConnect Information Model

The MTConnect standard is a widely adopted semantic vocabulary for manufacturing equipment to provide structured, contextualized data with no proprietary format. OPC UA is the gold standard for industrial data connectivity. The MTConnect standard with OPC UA offers a largely adopted standard data semantic communicated through a highly secure and extensible industrial communication technology. The high value offered by this standards combination often comes at an equally high cost. Up until now, deploying an OPC UA Server, required the acquisition of an OPC UA Software Development Toolkit (SDK) followed by several months of software development by a skilled software developer before the Server can be deployed. Beeond is releasing in August 2021, EdgeXConnect TM, a 100% configurable OPC UA Server that is deployed similar to how OPC Classic Servers are deployed – Quickly and by a Control/Application Engineer. This webinar is for OEM Equipment Vendors and Users who use the MTConnect standard and also want to OPC UA enable their automation systems –quickly and cost effectively. Cos Pipero, CTO of Beeond will demonstrate how EdgeXConnect TM is installed and quickly deployed, on either a Windows or Linux platform, without the need for software development. In addition to simplifying and lowering the cost of OPC UA, EdgeXConnectTM provides the ability to easily extend the MTConnect standard by adding OPC UA features such as writes and methods for controlling your equipment. And, access to these features can be controlled via configurable security. Thursday, June 24, 2021 – 11:00 a.m. EST

Russ Waddell

Russ works on standards development in manufacturing for digital factory, Industry 4.0, industrial internet of things, machine to machine communication, machine learning, artificial intelligence, analytics, predictive health and maintenance. He runs the MTConnect Institute, which is the ANSI-accredited standards developer for the MTConnect standard with 400+ members. The standard includes domain specific vocabulary for CNC machine tools, milling machines, lathes, boring and drilling machines, electrical discharge machines, lasers, waterjets, plasma cutters, robots, cutting tools, sensors, 3D printers, and other factory equipment and devices for discrete manufacturing, as well as nascent information models for parts, processes, materials, supply chain, and manufacturing execution systems. Companion specifications for OPC UA, B2MML, and QIF incorporate cybersecurity and protocol, manufacturing execution, and quality and inspection data.
