Honeywell Process Solutions unveils the Matrikon FLEX OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) Software Development Kit (SDK). The company calls it the first robust, fully scalable SDK that simplifies the interconnection of industrial software systems, enabling them to communicate with each other regardless of platform, operating system. or size. The SDK is suitable for applications where minimal memory and processing resources are common.
Matrikon FLEX is heralded as the first high-performance developer toolkit that quickly and easily enables any Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) application, regardless of size, with OPC UA. Growing adoption of the IIoT and Industrie 4.0 is driving requirements for open and secure connectivity between devices (e.g., machine-to-machine or M2M) and edge-to-cloud solutions. Since OPC UA serves as a key data connectivity standard, vendors are seeking to enable their new and existing products with this technology to compete in the IIoT/Industrie 4.0 landscape.
