Unified Automation GmbH - Newsletter June 2015

Dear OPC UA Enthusiast,

Industrie 4.0 and the Internet of Things evolve from pure buzzwords to concrete and substantial products and business cases. At the Hanover Trade show HMI back in March this year, OPC UA was announced as the key enabling technology for interoperability amongst the systems within production, the enterprise and beyond. Year 2015 has started with a strong market push, and new OPC UA products are emerging nearly every week.

In order to catch up with new requirements and use cases, our toolkits and SDKs have been constantly improved and enhanced with features regarding latest OPC UA Specification v1.03. We have simplified our portfolio and now offer full-featured OPC UA SDKs only. We provide the most sophisticated SDKs, giving you the chance to create the most sophisticated OPC UA products, which are future ready from day one.

Driven by the strong request of our customers and the embedded device market, we have added an OPC UA Client SDK to our ANSI C based toolkit family. In addition to the already existing Server SDK, you can now implement OPC UA Client functionality on an embedded PLC or a small embedded sensor in pure ANSI C code, small, fast and with minimal resource consumption.
M2M here we come!

Stay tuned on OPC UA. Hope you enjoy reading.

Yours sincerely
Jürgen Boxberger
CEO Unified Automation GmbH

OPC UA Workshops in Erlangen, Germany

There are still two possibilities to join our OPC UA workshops this year:

OPC Unified Architecture Introduction (two days): This Seminar gives a detailed introduction into the base concepts of the OPC Unified Architecture platform and provides an overview of all features of OPC UA.
This workshop is targeted on development managers, software architects, technical managers, developers and product managers.

OPC UA Developer Workshop (two days): In this workshop, participants learn to create their own OPC UA Server and Client applications by implementing the main features in sample OPC UA client and server applications. Participants can use this knowledge to create their own connections to any device or system using OPC UA.
This workshop is targeted on developers and software architects. Base knowledge in object oriented software development and C++, C#, or Java is required.
