In industrial automation, OPC is becoming the leading interoperability standard for secure, reliable and platform independent information exchange.
Over 4,200 suppliers have already developed thousands of OPC UA-enabled products that are used in more than 42 million applications. With over 45,000 OPC UA-enabled products on the market, the OPC Foundation has been instrumental in driving the market forward.
Stefan Hoppe emphasizes that new OPC UA-enabled devices are being launched regularly in the market – especially for AutoID solutions:
"We look forward to presenting the latest and most outstanding developments to all visitors of the RFID & Wireless IoT tomorrow 2020. At the booth of the OPC Foundation, we will show the latest devices from Harting, Siemens, Balluff, Leuz, Sick, Turck and many other well-known manufacturers. Furthermore, we will be represented at the Industrial IoT Forum with a very interesting presentation on the topic 'Mapping an AutoID Device in the Asset-Management-Shell Based on OPC UA'. See you in Darmstadt!"
