Honeywell's Matrikon OPC UA SDK selected by Emerson for Machinery Health System
September 7, 2016 -- Honeywell Process Solutions (HPS) announced that its Matrikon OPC Unified Architecture (UA) Software Development Kit (SDK) has been selected by Emerson Process Management to embed OPC UA in their CSI 6500 ATG Machinery Health Protection System.
Growing adoption of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and Industrie 4.0 is driving requirements for open and secure connectivity between devices (e.g., machine-to-machine or M2M) and edge-to-cloud solutions. Since OPC UA serves as a key data connectivity standard, vendors are seeking to enable their new and existing products with this technology to compete in the IIoT/Industrie 4.0 landscape. The Matrikon OPC UA SDK is a toolkit that allows users to interconnect industrial software systems, regardless of the platform, operating system or size.
While the agreement between Emerson and Honeywell facilitates adoption across all Emerson Process Management, Honeywell’s OPC UA stack is initially deployed in the new CSI 6500 ATG protection system. Evaluation for further deployment within Emerson Process Management is ongoing.
For original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) using SDKs to embed OPC UA functionality in their device or microchip, the Matrikon OPC UA SDK provides a solution to move products to market. This scalability makes the SDK a solution for companies that want to OPC UA-enable multiple product lines ranging from networked discrete sensors and actuators to programmable controllers and beyond.
Honeywell Process Solutions (www.honeywellprocess.com) is a pioneer in automation control, instrumentation and services for the oil and gas; refining; pulp and paper; industrial power generation; chemicals and petrochemicals; biofuels; life sciences; and metals, minerals and mining industries.
