What to Expect in Industrial Communication with OPC UA and 5G?
Connectivity and speed go hand-in-hand when speaking about industrial networks. While interoperability has specifically been an issue with sheer volume of heterogeneous devices on the plant floor, a reliable QoS has been the demand for better responsiveness. OPC has been in the market for many years now. What if the capabilities of OPC UA are combined with the speed of 5G? What benefits or applications can be derived from this cutting-edge combination? Read this riveting article published in IEN Europe magazine.

DD/FDI package to DTM + customization = easy integration
The device integration standards like EDDL, DTM and FDI allows consistent commissioning, configuration and maintenance of field devices. Based on the customer need, device suppliers need to provide and maintain EDDL, FDI Device Package and / or DTM. And in the entire Device Development Cycle, DTM will be the last piece in the puzzle and will always go through the tight schedule and budget constraint.
PROFINET and OPC UA: real world use case of mapping diagnostic information
In our previous article (PROFINET and OPC UA - Data to valuble insight), we have learned about OPC UA can be integrated into the PN I/O device, PN Controller device or edge gateway. In this article, we will cover the details of PROFINET diagnostic concept and use cases covered by PROFINET and OPC UA specification for mapping the diagnostic information from PROFINET device to OPC UA.
