The foundation cites strong OPC UA market adoption as what is driving record OPC Foundation membership growth

The OPC Foundation welcomes Inovance as the 800th OPC Foundation member. Accoring to OPC, as a global provider of industrial automation solutions, Inovance uses agile production techniques and experience across all industry sectors to help companies establish and maintain industry-specific business units around the world. Inovance builds long-term partnerships with its customers providing them with access to R&D and manufacturing and engineering and industry-sector specialists.

"We are honored to join the OPC Foundation," said Dr. Yang Lei, director of research and development at Inovance. "OPC UA will play a significant role in our factory automation software and industrial Internet of things platforms. This is an important step for Inovance as it helps us transform our automation solutions into digital transformation and intelligent factory solutions. The OPC UA standard is particularly attractive to us because it is system agnostic, has broad multi-function capabilities, and is secure. This enables us to integrate data from controllers, drivers, sensors and devices with our edge and cloud applications for data analysis – effectively enabling us to build network architectures that span every layer in in the factory."

"As an international and a Chinese National Standard, OPC UA is well-positioned to contribute to the Made in China 2025 initiative," said Albert Zhang, managing director of OPC China. "OPC UA enables China's manufacturers to take advantage of IIoT era data interoperability in their own factories and helps make their automation products more competitive internationally. Inovance is a great example of a leading Chinese company truly taking advantage of what OPC UA has to offer. We welcome Inovance to the OPC Foundation and look forward to the OPC UA enabled products and solutions it will bring to the market.”`"

The OPC Foundation said it is gratifying to see its membership grow to new heights with a Chinese company with global relevance across many industry verticals joining its ranks. As a member, Inovance can now share its expertise by participating in OPC UA Companion Specification development efforts run by the OPC Foundation and other industry organizations.
