Press release from: OPC Training Institute

EDMONTON, AB, CANADA, August 27, 2008 - The OPC Training Institute (OPCTI), an independent training organization, is scheduled, on September 16, 2008, to address the impact of the OPC Foundation’s OPC Unified Architecture (UA) specification on the worldwide manufacturing industry.

The OPC UA specification was first proposed in 2004, however it is only in 2008 when OPC integrators have seen products available with the UA wrapper. The evolution of OPC has many automation personnel and engineers asking if the new OPC standard is making their existing OPC data communication networks obsolete.

These changes are causing some to scramble for answers while leaving others to wonder if OPC technology is really the way of the future for process control and manufacturing. Why would one want to integrate OPC UA? Are my OPC Data Access (DA) servers and applications obsolete? What does this mean for a Linux operating system? Will OPC UA be backward compatible? - These are just some of the questions being asked.

"OPCTI is regularly asked to explain what impact the UA spec has on industry", says Randy Kondor, President of the OPC Training Institute. "People are confused and are looking for answers. The role of the OPC Training Institute is to provide answers and help end-users and integrators understand the ins and outs of OPC technology."

Managers, automation & IT personnel, engineers and others are invited to register for the complimentary one hour, online symposium taking place on September 16, 2008. For complete details, and to register, visit the OPCTI website at http://www.opcti.com/ua.
