OPC describes itself as the universally accepted standard that delivers the ability to monitor and control in Machine to Machine (M2M) and Machine to Enterprise (M2E) scenarios. OPC stands for OPen Connectivity via open Standards.
Attendees will leave the day-long meeting with an understanding of the value of OPC. They'll also have a working knowledge of the various specifications, putting them in the position to evaluate or leverage OPC-compliant offerings from various vendors.
"Equipment monitoring and interoperability is the key to extracting maximum performance and reliability out of any automation solution," says Thomas Burke, OPC Foundation president and executive director.
The event begins at 8:00 a.m. at the Marriott Milwaukee West in Waukesha, WI, 262/574-0888. Attendees will enjoy a continental breakfast and lunch, both sponsored by leading vedors in the OPS industry. This is an opportunity not only to learn from the experts in a vendor-neutral, seminar-style environment, but also to mingle with both vendors of technology and your peers in the automation industry. Registration is required, and it can be taken care of at www.opcfoundation.org.
