HUBER innovations have always been driven by the needs of our global customer base. For communication needs we have integrated communication interfaces such as the analog interface 4-20mA, digital interfaces RS232, RS485, Ethernet, USB and communication protocols (Modbus, Profibus,…) and proprietary protocols such as the PB commands which are available as a HUBER standard since many years.
The new E-grade “OPC-UA” is now available for all units with the unique plug&play controller Pilot One® . It allows data exchange (e.g remote operation, data logging or recording,….) using the latest M2M (machine to machine) communication protocol OPC-UA (Openess, Productivity, Collaboration – unified architecture) via the ethernet interface of the Pilot One®.
A major advantage of this new standard is the fact, that OPC-UA servers and clients work in a secure and encrypted mode. Commands are send together with their description, whereby the communication can easily be configured with a graphical user interface. Other important features of OPC-UA are redundancy support and the indication of interrupts of the datacommunication between both server and client .
We hear from our customers that “OPC-UA” has become the favorite option of data communication in many industries. Beckhoff, Siemens (S5, S7), Allen Bradley a.m.m offer OPC -UA servers and OPC-UA clients are available from LabView, Matricon, a.m.m
Whatever the future brings @ HUBER we were born to communicate and we are ready talk your “language”…. it takes two to tango.
