Extending Connectivity to the Bottom of the Ocean

  • White Paper

If you have a ControlLogix PLC being used as the MCS, how can you make use of the OPC UA MDIS spec and bypass the old Modbus integration to the DCS? Softing has developed an OPC UA MDIS compliant server module that inserts into the ControlLogix chassis and creates the OPC UA provides a framework that can be used to represent field devices, for example.
