OPC UA Forge - Effective Onboarding

Effective Onboarding and Reconfiguration​

The growing number of hardware and software items from different vendors in production processes requires new solutions to organize your data. Prosys OPC UA Forge enables a straightforward on-boarding and reconfiguration of IT systems and production equipment, as well as easy scaling to multiple production sites.

OPC UA Forge - Data Harmonization

Information Modeling and Data Harmonization

Browse the underlying address spaces of all connected servers and select the data you want to harmonize and publish. Easy-to-use operations such as rename, scale, and offset assist you in achieving your goals. Modeling tools enable mapping and organizing underlying data into information models based on industry standards.

OPC UA Forge - Unified Address Space

Unified Address Space

Once configured, the unified address space exposes underlying data from all the connected data sources, according to your naming and structuring principles. This result streamlines OT data acquisition for IT systems, providing information in the most suitable and standard way.
