InduSoft is participating in the “IAS” (Industrial Automation show) at the International Industry Fair in China this week. Visitors to the show can find InduSoft in the OPC Foundation booth, demonstrating InduSoft Web Studio SCADA software communication capabilities using OPC technologies.
It is estimated that there will be over 100,000 visitors to this show.
On Tuesday, InduSoft and other OPC members presented to about 50 members of the Chinese press. Topics covered were the uses of OPC UA in real applications as well as several goals InduSoft had to focus on to implement OPC UA within its IWS product.
One of the interesting things noticed at this year’s show is that there are many of the communications standards organizations with their own booths promoting their technologies to the emerging Chinese automation industry. In addition to OPC, CC-link, ODVA, Sercos, EtherCAT and CAN in Automation are all promoting their standards.
