FDT, OPC approve updating FDT/OPC Unified Architecture companion specification

Nov. 10, 2021

FDT Group and OPC Foundation announced their memberships have approved updating the FDT/OPC Unified Architecture (UA) companion specification (CS).

This launches what they report is the only protocol-agnostic, server-level, universal device information (DI) model for process and discrete manufacturing, and empowers next-generation, open automation FDT architectures. The updated FDT/OPC UA CS unifies data for IT and OT users and processes, while enabling the transmission of uniform, real-time process, network and device information for any OPC UA client in an enterprise.
