Measurement Systems with Open Communications

Diameter, Ovality, Eccentricity, and Flaw Detection measurement systems from LaserLinc use OPC communications protocol that is compatible with Manufacturing 4.0 and IIoT to capture, modify and move data from different systems.

When measuring medical tubing, catheters and other parts, the Triton 312 micrometer from LaserLinc uses OPC communications protocol that is compatible with Manufacturing 4.0 and IIoT so that users can access and modify configurations from any OPC-DA or OPC-UA compliant device or software, directly or remotely, without additional hardware or software.

LaserLinc, Inc. (Fairborn, OH) provides Diameter, Ovality, Eccentricity, and Flaw Detection measurement systems with OPC UA & DA communication. All of these in-process and off-line measurement and control systems are now available with OPC, the leading industrial communications protocol, including the latest platform/operating system independent Universal Architecture (OPC-UA) standard. OPC-UA ensures that measurement systems are compatible with Manufacturing 4.0 and IIoT. In addition to data, users are able to access and modify configurations from any OPC-DA or OPC-UA compliant device or software, directly or remotely, without additional hardware or software. OPC Client functions simplify commissioning of systems and save money. Most OPC-UA compliant products, including sensors and PLCs, only offer Server functions, meaning they require a third-party gateway to bridge them. With OPC Client, the Total Vu HMI of LaserLinc can drive communication directly.

“This is a much better way to capture and move data, especially from different systems. The cost savings and ability to directly access and modify data is a game changer,” said Jeff Kohler, the chief executive officer of LaserLinc. “All of our systems can be upgraded to OPC [UA or DA]. With the remote support tools provided with our systems, upgrades can be performed over the internet by our team of applications engineers.”
