This two-day workshop covers the pragmatic aspects of using OPC in industrial settings. From acquiring and managing data from your data sources to traversing domain and network boundaries, this workshop shows you how to work with OPC applications in ‘real world’ settings. This workshop includes a series of practical troubleshooting exercises that require the participants to isolate and resolve a series of faults in a simulated environment to best reinforce the material covered throughout the teaching sessions.
Completion of this workshop provides the participant with a solid understanding of the following;
- How OPC applications (both Classic and UA) are used to acquire process data in an industrial environment
- How OPC Classic applications can be used to share data from real-time data sources
- How OPC Classic applications can be used to share data from historical data sources
- How OPC UA applications can be used to share data from all data sources
- How OPC applications can be used to provide redundancy in process control systems
- How OPC Classic applications handle network traversal to cross domain and network boundaries
- How OPC UA applications handle network traversal to cross domain and network boundaries
Participants will also gain experience in using the knowledge from this workshop, and the Overview and Concepts workshop, in a practical troubleshooting environment.
CIO, Control and Application Engineers, Developers, Integrators, Managers, Operations Managers, Plant Floor Operators, Plant Managers
This workshop is made up of lectures, PowerPoint presentations and hands-on exercises. It is run in an open and friendly environment that encourages discussion and participation. Students are welcome to discuss current connectivity issues they are faced with and learn from one another.
