January 23, 2019 – LaserLinc introduced Diameter, Ovality, Eccentricity, and Flaw Detection measurement systems with OPC UA & DA communication.
All of LaserLinc’s in-process and off-line measurement and control systems are now available with OPC, an industrial communications protocol, including the latest platform/operating system independent Universal Architecture (OPC-UA) standard. OPC-UA ensures measurement systems are compatible with Manufacturing 4.0 and IIoT.
In addition to data, users are able to access and modify configuration from any OPC-DA or OPC-UA compliant device or software, directly or remotely, without additional hardware or software.
LaserLinc chose to offer OPC Client functions to simplify commissioning of systems. Most OPC-UA compliant products, including sensors and PLCs, only offer Server functions, thus requiring a third-party gateway to bridge them. With its OPC Client, LaserLinc’s Total Vu HMI can drive communication directly.
