LaserLinc Announces Measurement Systems with OPC Unified Architecture

FAIRBORN, OHIO (January 2019) – LaserLinc, Inc., a USA manufacturer of technology for precision measurement is pleased to introduce Diameter, Ovality, Eccentricity, and Flaw Detection measurement systems with OPC UA & DA communication.

All of LaserLinc’s in-process and off-line measurement and control systems are now available with OPC, the leading industrial communications protocol, including the latest platform/operating system independent Universal Architecture (OPC-UA) standard. OPC-UA ensures your measurement systems are compatible with Manufacturing 4.0 and IIoT.

In addition to data, users are able to access and modify configuration from any OPC-DA or OPC-UA compliant device or software, directly or remotely, without additional hardware or software.

LaserLinc chose to offer OPC Client functions to simplify commissioning of systems and save money. Most OPC-UA compliant products, including sensors and PLCs, only offer Server functions, thus requiring a third-party gateway to bridge them. With its OPC Client, LaserLinc’s Total Vu HMI can drive communication directly.

“This is a much better way to capture and move data, especially from different systems. The cost savings and ability to directly access and modify data is a game changer,” said Jeff Kohler, CEO of LaserLinc.  “All of our systems can be upgraded to OPC [UA or DA]. With the remote support tools provided with our systems, upgrades can be performed over the Internet by our team of applications engineers,” he added.
