ODVA is a dynamic organization that, in a unique spirit of cooperation, brings together competitors who share a common interest in developing and promoting best-in-class, open network standards, Perducat said. As a principal member of ODVA, Schneider Electric has pledged its strong support for the success of the organization, and I am honored to be chosen to serve on ODVAs board and as its president. In this role, I look forward to building on the success of the integration of Modbus TCP devices into EtherNet/IP by continuing to work with the leadership and members of ODVA to drive the continued evolution of ODVA as a world leader in industrial Ethernet.
In addition, Schneider Electrics Rudy Belliardi was chosen to serve as a representative on the ODVA Technical Review Board.
