The primary benefits of having all devices in an ITS system controlled and configured under a single OPC client
application (such as a HMI or a SCADA system) are obvious and immediate: increased simplicity, efficiency, and
responsiveness of the control system. Rather than “running around the control room,” operators have central,
simultaneous access to the entire system. And by using a universal driver and off-the-shelf software, the cost
integration of ITS systems is substantially reduced compared to the cost of numerous proprietary solutions.
