Why opc
Why OPC ?

  • Interoperability

  • Standards : fact or fiction?

  • Where did OPC come from?

  • Four Core Companies

  • OPC Foundation

  • Write a communications driver one time

  • Solve World Hunger?

Thomas J.Burke


Where did opc come from
Where did OPC come from?

  • 1995 OPC Foundation task force

    • Spin-off from WinSem Group

    • Intellution, Rockwell Software, Fisher Rosemount, opto 22, (intuitive)

  • “solve the driver problem”

  • Success is measured by level of adoption

  • High-value vendor problem solved

  • Proven Technology

Thomas J.Burke


The members
The Members

  • Membership demographics

    • All “large” automation companies are members (Siemens, ABB, Rockwell, Honeywell…)

    • 45% of all members are small companies (<2 Mio$)

  • Membership distribution per continent

    • Equal amount of members within Europe and North America

OPC History

  • The Problem

    • Many different vendors

    • Custom made solutions

    • Proprietary technologies

    • Point-to-point Integration

    • Limited “real-time” information

    • Maintenance nightmare

    • Multiple dependencies

  • Solution

History of opc foundation
History of OPC Foundation

  • September 1996

    • Formation of: Fisher-Rosemount, Rockwell Software, Opto 22, Intellution, and Intuitive Technology

  • February 1997

    • Foundation of OPC Europe

  • October 1998

    • Release of Data Access Specification 2.0

  • June 1999

    • Release of Alarm & Events Specification 1.0

  • 2000

    • OPC XML and OPC DX were announced

  • October 2002

    • Release of OPC XML-DA Specification 1.0

  • 2004 >>> OPC UA Workgroup Kick-Off

Opc foundation
OPC Foundation

  • International Industry Standard Organization

    • 400+ Member Companies / 100+ end-users Members

    • 2500+ Total Companies Build OPC Products = 15000+ Products

  • The vision of OPC is to be the Foundation for interOperability

    • for moving information vertically from the factory floor through the enterprise of multi-vendor systems (with stops in between…)

    • For moving information horizontally between devices on different industrial networks from different vendors;

    • Not just data but information…….

  • Reliable, Secure Integration is not an Option

  • Collaboration is key to pulling multiple “open” standards into unified open platform architecture….

Opc tomorrow
OPC Tomorrow

  • Extensive growth in the field of high level application is expected, software marked above HMI and SCADA

  • Extensive growth in the field of embedded devices and intelligent sensors is expected, software marked below PLCs and drivers

  • Membership growth up to 1000 within the next 6 years

  • In 2002 UA working Group was announced

  • 3 years of work by more than 25 permanently involved people, regular meetings, uncountable telephone conferences, thousands of working hours

  • >>> The way is paved for OPC Unified Architecture
