End User Seminar (at JEMIMA)
FDT Group Japan will be hosting a seminar at JEMIMA to educate industrial automation professionals on FDT advancements for the new era automation focused around FDT IIoT Server (FITS™). FITS is a key enabler of today’s smart industrial operations advancing support of IIoT and Industrie 4.0 to meet the demands of the automation end user community. FITS is the universal solution for deployment as a cloud, fog, local server, or standalone platform, and can scale to suit the needs of a single manufacturing facility or an entire industrial enterprise.
FITS is delivered as an open, standardized architecture concept to empower the intelligent enterprise and simplify the ecosystem exchange. The server’s core FRAME™ and DTM™ components are surrounded by three primary interfaces: FDT/OPC UA information modeling enabling information to be shared between higher-level applications and the FITS architecture; Web Services supporting operating system (OS) agnostic platforms, along with a standardized mobile access approach to the FITS architecture for browsers, apps, standalone applications or anything else capable of interfacing via web sockets; and Control capabilities allowing operational management and maintenance for industrial automation networks and attached devices.
The seminar will also focus on FDT integration with OPC UA and industrie 4.0. Presentation will focus on how device-specific information from FDT/DTMs, is provided within the Information-Layer of RAMI 4.0, where it may be used to integrate field devices into Industrie 4.0 applications, how the different information for device types and for device instances are represented with one OPC UA information model, and identification (offline and online), configuration of the device (offline and online), diagnosis and device documentation based on functions of the DTM as well as engineering data as defined by eCl@ss.
More information coming soon.
