OPC UA Interface: Communicating Temperature Control Units
Temperature control units from Regloplas AG, St. Gallen, Switzerland, communicate with each other via a variety of interfaces at all levels using cutting-edge technology and are integrated into the factory of the future as networked devices thanks to the use of forward-looking technology. With the new OPC UA (Unified Architecture) interface, Regloplas offers its customers a reliable solution for the simultaneous parallel exchange of data at all levels of industrial production.
UPC UA is fully compatible with existing interfaces such as Ethernet/IP Profibus, Profinet, CAN, CANopen, RS232 and RS485. The secure and standardised information and data exchange between device and machine can be controlled by the customer via the Cloud. Regloplas temperature control units open up a new aspect of communication and are optimally equipped to meet current technical needs and the requirements of Industry 4.0.
UPC UA offers maximum flexibility during application of devices in businesses with machines from different manufacturers, each type of machine only requires the appropriate connection; the connection between the devices does not have to be configured. Each temperature control unit has its own OPC UA client server and therefore offers unlimited options for data exchange and communication.
