EDMONTON, ALBERTA, April 3, 2014 - MatrikonOPC™ announced today the release of the MatrikonOPC UA Proxy, which makes it easy for companies to take advantage of the next generation OPC standard – called OPC Unified Architecture (UA) – while continuing to use their existing OPC classic architectures.
While the OPC UA standard is backward compatible with classic OPC from a data perspective, it uses different technologies to establish connections and to transmit OPC data. By using the UA Proxy from MatrikonOPC, companies can easily bridge this gap making it possible for them to maximize their ROI on their existing classic OPC architectures while being free to start adopting the broad range of new OPC UA based product offerings.
"Companies using OPC classic have seen the benefits of adopting standards based data connectivity, see the additional value and reach OPC UA has to offer, but have concerns about how to go about tying the two technologies together. With the release of the UA Proxy, MatrikonOPC removes those obstacles – providing the first easy, reliable way to seamlessly combine these two OPC technologies." said Darek Kominek, marketing manager of MatrikonOPC.
