Matrikon FLEX OPC software development kit

Wednesday, 24 May, 2017 | Supplied by: Honeywell Process Solutions

Honeywell Process Solutions has announced a software toolkit that simplifies the interconnection of industrial software systems, enabling them to communicate with each other regardless of platform, operating system or size. The Matrikon FLEX OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) Software Development Kit (SDK) is also designed for applications where minimal memory and processing resources are common.

Intended for use by discrete and process industry manufacturers, commercial customers and automation original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), Matrikon FLEX is claimed to be the first high-performance developer toolkit that quickly and easily enables any application, regardless of size, with OPC UA.

Growing adoption of the IIoT and Industry 4.0 is driving requirements for open and secure connectivity between devices and for edge-to-cloud solutions. Since OPC UA serves as a key data connectivity standard, vendors are seeking to enable their products with this technology to compete in the IIoT/Industry 4.0 landscape.

Matrikon FLEX incorporates embedded-first principles, which makes the toolkit small and suitable for use in resource-constrained applications. Due to its low memory requirement, it operates efficiently so there are sufficient CPU resources for correct device functionality.

With its ‘server/client-in-a-box’ design, the toolkit provides a fast, seamless method of implementing optimised OPC UA products without requiring development personnel to be OPC UA experts. It also employs a robust design to maximise product uptime, allowing OPC UA to be implemented in products with minimal computing resources.
