The FDT Group booth will showcase the progress made by the FDT Group and OPC Foundation on integrating the OPC UA architecture into an FDT/FRAME. A new, key feature will be a demonstration of robust device-to-cloud data exchange made possible by the two organizations’ collaboration. Visitors will see a display of asset health monitoring on a mobile device using the FDT2/OPC UA annex. FDT Technology’s method of communicating device and machine data using OPC UA provides an effective combination of local control and monitoring. The demonstration will show the standard integration of information provided by Device Type Managers (DTMs) into the OPC UA information model. This is an important capability for device diagnostics, configuration and remote asset management, as well as integration with Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) to support operational excellence initiatives.

The FDT Group will also showcase the advancement of its non-proprietary standard to keep pace with the changing requirements of industry worldwide. The organization has established a comprehensive cyber security infrastructure to address potential cyber attacks on plant automation assets. It is also committed to helping end users deploy the functionality they appreciate in the FDT standard on leading mobile platforms. FDT Technology will play a vital role in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), optimizing industrial communication networks, automation systems, and device suppliers. In addition, the standard has been written into the Industry 4.0 and Modular Automation initiatives with the goal of unifying system engineering, configuration and diagnosis.
