MONCTON, NB, May 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ - After an intensive, eight-month development and testing process, RtTech Software is pleased to announce that the OPC Foundation has officially listed RtTech Software's IIoT Infrastructure as an official OPC Certified product.
OPC certification provides credibility when promoting solutions and services within the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) ecosphere. OPC UA is key to enabling interoperability between devices and assets which is critical for plants and factories that are connecting new and legacy systems for IIoT solutions. OPC UA provides a standardized communication, security, and protocols for a wide range of industrial equipment and software.
"From the very beginning of this project our team had developed our OPC connector with the goal of a certifiable finished product. They followed all recommended procedures and the hard work has paid off," said Keith Flynn, Founder and President of RtTech Software. "The OPC Foundation also provided us with excellent tools to assist in the certification process. These tools proved to be invaluable in helping us ensure that our product met and exceeded the certification standards."
RtTech Software's OPC Certified 'equipment to apps' solution collects data from multiple sources including MQTT, OPC, Modbus, ODBC, OSIsoft, HART and Flat File. The solution provides end-to-end data collection, aggregation and analytics via a centralized management console which integrates apps in areas such as asset-health monitoring, downtime tracking, and energy management.
"The OPC Foundation certification program facilitates OPC members to certify and validate compliance and interoperability to the OPC specifications and technology," said Thomas J. Burke, OPC Foundation President & Executive Director. "RtTech Software successfully certified their product in the OPC Foundation certification lab, truly meeting and exceeding the high standards of quality that end-users of OPC products have come to expect."
