Progea launchs on the industrial automation market the product Connext, strong from his long stroy and know how in the industrials communication protocols and OPC UA. Connext is based on Automation Platform.NExT technology, the industry’s leading automation platform that provides a single source of industrial automation data to all of your applications. The platform design allows users to connect, manage, monitor, and control diverse automation devices and software applications through one intuitive user interface. Connext leverages OPC UA (the automation industry’s standard for interoperability) and IT communication (such as SNMP, IIoT, ) to provide users with a single source for industrial data. The platform is developed and tested to meet our customers’ performance, reliability, and ease-of-use requirements.
Connext provides communication for a wide range of industrial and infrastructures devices and fieldbus, and manages the OPC UA connection with any standard Client. Furthermore, it manages powerful features like Gateway, Historian, Alarms & Condition, IIoT, Redundancy.
OPC UA Server Certified
The Connext Server is OPC foundation-ready and supports the Data Access, Alarm & Conditions and Historical Access specifications.
Licenses are sized by the number of Tags in use. This means any tag type, such as bit, byte, word, float and double/long 64bit, connected to the field including those defined as structure or array members. The byte, word and other tag types can be pointed to one individual bit. (Note: Each Structure or Array member counts as one tag).
Each Connext OPC UA Server offers a suite of communication protocols. The user can activate one protocol at a time or several at a time by using the Multidrivers option.
