The huge challenge faced by Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is the issue of information interaction. Equipment, machines and services in different industries require standardized data and information interaction. In all aspects of design, production, and manufacturing, collaboration must be based on information-based standards and specifications.
1.What is OPC UA
OPC UA is an important communication protocol in industry 4.0 and industrial IoT. OPC UA is a successor standard of OPC, with the addition of UA to signify "Unified Architecture." Its main purpose is to get rid of Windows, realizing OPC server on ARM /LINUX platform, or Client program on the cloud LINUX platform.
The OPC UA interface protocol, including the previous A&E, DA,OPC XML DA or HDA, has access to all previous objects using only one address space, and is not limited by the WINDOWS platform because it is defined from above the transport layer Scoket. It is much more flexible and secure than the previous OPC.
Baima Industrial Intelligent Gateway full Support OPC UA
2.OPC gateway assists to realize the integration of management and control
With the deepening of industry 4.0 and industrial IoT, the demand for the integration management and control system is increasing day by day. The development of integration of management and control requires the extension of perfect management functions in the traditional SCADA platform or the extension of real-time monitoring functions in the original management system. Baima Tech was the first one to launch an industrial intelligent gateway which supporting OPC UA, assisting customers to realize the high integration of OT and IT, and achieving the goal of the integration of management and control.
BaimaTech provides an industrial intelligent gateway which supporting OPC UA
After several rounds of optimization and iteration, various series of industrial intelligent gateways under Baima Tech support OPC UA. Including: 5G edge computing gateway, secure encrypted communication gateway, industrial Internet of Things gateway, PLC gateway, industrial 5G/4G router which supporting OPC UA protocol.
Baima gateway supports hardware and software customization
