FDT 3.0 and OPC UA: Enabling IT/OT Interoperability in the New Age of Automation

FDT 3.0 and OPC UA: Enabling IT/OT Interoperability in the New Age of Automation

Industrial manufacturing operations are in the early phase of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This era will be driven not just by data, but also by the intelligence that can be derived from it and applied across the operational landscape of equipment, processes, facilities, and people. Integrating OT and IT systems is an important first step along the path.

By unifying OT and IT systems and practices in a converged system architecture, businesses can eliminate inefficiencies and barriers to interoperability, improve automation, and accelerate innovation.

uEye XCP: the Industry's Smallest Standard Format

uEye XCP: the Industry's Smallest Standard Format

The new uEye XCP camera family from IDS Imaging Development Systems shows that cost-effective industrial cameras with C-mount can also be offered in the industry's smallest standard format.

Initially, the USB3 camera will be launched with the 2.3 MP AR0234 global shutter sensor and the 5 MP AR0521 rolling shutter sensor from ON Semiconductor. Their cost-optimised design makes them ideal for high-volume and price-sensitive projects.

The cameras feature a fully enclosed die-cast zinc housing measuring just 29 x 29 x 17 mm. Thanks to...
