Information Modeling, OPC UA, and Industrial Automation Protocols

IIOT “Industrial Internet Of Things”

Abstract: A fundamental premise of Industrie 4.0, the IIoT, China 2025, and other advanced manufacturing initiatives is the ubiquity of digitization from the plant floor to the cloud. But field devices remain in place for decades, field communication protocols remain, and in fact new ones will continue to emerge.

Field level protocol independent software solutions are needed to provide access to information from the plant floor to the cloud and all points in-between. OPC UA provides an excellent general framework for achieving this goal. OPC UA companion standards and information models like FDI and the PA information model specify industry specific details to complete the vision.

Learn how FieldComm Group - the home of HART, WirelessHART, FDI, and FOUNDATION Fieldbus technologies; and OPC Foundation, the home of OPC Unified Architecture and many industry specific companion standards, have teamed to create the protocol independent process automation information model.
