B&R steps up efforts advancing OPC UA

B&R steps up efforts advancing OPC UA

B&R is now represented in the OPC Foundation's Technical Advisory Council (TAC). This move further strengthens B&R’s role in the strategic advancement of the OPC UA standard. Appointment to the TAC is a tribute to B&R’s committed involvement throughout numerous OPC Foundation working groups.

Drawing its membership from the likes of Microsoft, SAP, Rockwell and Siemens, TAC is the highest technical body within the OPC Foundation. The council is tasked with setting the strategic course for advancing OPC UA in a way that maximises user benefits. It has the authority to establish technical working groups and approve new OPC UA specifications.

B&R will be represented in the TAC by Dr Dietmar Bruckner. As Technical Manager of Open Automation Technologies at B&R, Dr Bruckner is responsible for all development activities surrounding OPC UA TSN. “I’m very much looking forward to working in the TAC,” he says. “Together, we will make rapid progress in the development of Pub/Sub and TSN. In combination with application-specific OPC UA companion specifications, we will very soon be able to offer a uniform standard for seamless communication from the sensor to the cloud.”
