Flexy is OPC UA Ready
Flexy now integrates an OPC UA Client which, alongside the major automation protocols already embedded in it, allows even more interoperability. The highest security standards of OPC UA are fully implemented inside the Flexy Client and offers various level of authentication and encryption mechanisms to fit the security option offered by your PLC/HMI enabled with OPC UA Servers.
What is OPC UA (Unified Architecture) ?
OPC UA is a communication protocol for a secure and reliable exchange of data in industrial automation applications. It has the major advantage of being platform-independent, and ensures the seamless flow of information among devices from multiple vendors. From sensors to cloud, OPC UA is fully scalable, object oriented and allows the use of structures or models which makes governance and maintenance far easier.
Thanks to an embedded OPC UA Server, the same Flexy provides an easy and secure communication channel to move information from devices, even legacy PLC’s, to IT applications. In fact its an ideal integration solution for SCADA applications for when you need to share key values of your equipment on the factory floor.
Leveraging your machine data has never been simpler
