Our Industrial IOT (IIoT) solutions can be designed to fit or retro-fit any current operations model. OPC UA enabled devices are the future of the connected enterprise -- Our UA implementations can be applied to enhance a variety of target architectures, from industrial and commercial control systems to micro-computing devices such as edge devices and smart sensors.
Small and cost-effective, OPC UA enabled ARM Cortex M-series microprocessors can be engineered to enhance traditional measurements such as thermocouples and gas sensors. These cyber-secure measurements can be directly integrated at the panel-level or higher.
ARM Cortex A-series and Intel Atom processors have the power to enable true edge devices, capable of executing situational awareness rules and creating information models in the fog. Our embedded OPC UA layer operates within RTOS architectures, as well full blown OS kernels, to enable an extremely feature rich OPC UA device.
Whether fitting a legacy DCS with OPC UA, or designing a new high-throughput system, mFactor provides scalable plant and enterprise-wide connectivity. Our protocol proxies and wrappers ensures any legacy equipment can be retro-fit with OPC UA connectivity, providing your operation with a new level of data-driven insight to improve safety, security, and productivity.
Phased OPC UA Migration
For the developed enterprise, a transistion to OPC UA cannot be accomplished within a single development cycle. Thus, mFactor has a strategy for phasing in OPC UA over a period of time to provide integration for existing operations of any size and scale. The reference architecture below outlines how this is accomplished, please contact us for more details.
