OPC-UA - CPX valve terminalFesto says it has embedded OPC Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) into its valve terminals, enabling plant managers and engineers to realise the benefits of smart manufacturing and Industry 4.0 principles. The company claims these valve terminals can now be embedded in any Industry 4.0 host environment.

The company says all its valve terminals with CPX remote I/O can be extended to include an integrated CODESYS controller. This means that OPC-UA is an available option for Industry 4.0 host environments in all factory automation and process automation applications, claims Festo.
