Certified Compliant and Interoperability Tested
OPC Compliancy Tested
The OPC Foundation has developed a standard software test tool, called the Compliance Test Tool or CTT. Vendors who are members of the OPC Foundation can use this tool to Compliance Test their OPC Servers, and submit the CTT generated, encrypted file to the OPC Foundation. All MatrikonOPC Servers have been certified using the OPC Foundation OPC Compliance Test Tool.
OPC Users should look for OPC Server products that have passed the compliance tests for all specifications that the product supports.
OPC Interoperability Tested
Every year the OPC Foundation hosts Interoperability (IOP) Workshops at various locations around the world. All OPC vendors are invited to these Interoperability Testing event and test their OPC products with the other OPC vendor products. The interoperability test process requires that OPC vendors run a series of standard tests for each combination of an OPC Client and an OPC Server product. Members of the MatrikonOPC Development group attend these IOP Workshops every year.
OPC Users should look for OPC Client and OPC Server products that have been tested with several products from other OPC vendors for each of the specifications that the products support.
