Communicate securely with OPC Unified Architecture
OPC UA builds the bridge between the Ethernet-based IT world and your Leistritz extrusion line. Many different interfaces, gateways and the complex implementation are a thing of the past, as all your production process data can be transferred via a single protocol.
OPC-UA | Your digital networking of production
New technologies and data-based business models are making their way into mechanical engineering.
This also opens up new paths for production and maintenance for you.
Predictive maintenance and process optimization are the main focus here.
You can use the interface e.g. for viewing live process data, for data archiving and for writing recipes from MES / ERP systems.
The basis for this is a secure and seamless exchange of data with the production facilities. This is provided by the possibility of encryption and authentication of your communication.
The use of OPC UA makes it possible to collect process information of all machines and plants (manufacturer-independent) or to exchange it with process control systems for further processing.
Data can be transferred within a machine, between machines, or between a machine and a database in the cloud.
