This workshop is "the" event for testing OPC products for interoperability and preparing them for market. Vendors can test and debug their products against one another for interoperability, compliance and reliability. IOP workshops also provide an ideal opportunity to network with your peers, learn about OPC technology, and interact with industry-leading experts.
Plan on debugging issues that occur and be prepared to modify your software components if required. Testing will be primarily for the successful operation between clients and servers; we will test for failures as time permits.
The OPC Interoperability Workshops are open to OPC Foundation member companies only. The cost is US $500 per person. Space is limited to 60 attendees, so register now!
The 2016 IOPs were very successful, with several members reporting that it was "extremely valuable" in preparing their products for release.
Optional training sessions (15 - 30 minutes) will introduce and promote various OPC activities and deliverables throughout the week. Details will be made available closer to the event.
Challenge “Stress” Test
This workshop will also feature the Challenge Test, in which multiple OPC clients and servers will be stress tested with thousands of tags/nodes per connection, concurrently during network connectivity losses.
Products that successfully pass the Challenge Test are ideal candidates for OPC Foundation lab certification.
Available OPC Technology For Testing
OPC Unified Architecture (UA) - Windows, Linux, Embedded
Provided Infrastructure For Testing
Local Area Network consisting of a standard CAT5 Ethernet cable
Web-based application providing Test suggestions and for recording test results
What to Bring
Computer (laptops are preferred) containing your OPC product(s) for testing.
Backup drives and/or restoration DVDs in the event your PC crashes.
Any additional hardware/software needed to conduct your testing.
