Schneider Electric VP named president of ODVA Board of Directors
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. The Technical Review Board is responsible for oversight of ODVAs technical standards, including approval of enhancements to ODVAs specifications for CIP networks. Belliardi, a consulting engineer, is located in North Andover, Mass., and has worked for Schneider Electric since 1984. He is responsible for communication networks standardization.
ODVA, which is a non-stock corporation incorporated in Wisconsin, changed its legal name from Open DeviceNet Vendor Association, Inc. to ODVA, Inc., the acronym under which the organization has long been operating. This legal change reflects ODVAs evolution from an organization founded in 1995 to develop and promote the DeviceNet standard into a world-class standards development organization encompassing industrial networking technologies for automation applications from the plant floor to the enterprise.
