Webinar: Data exchange – OPC UA a common language for mining
Presenters: Fiona Mavroudis, Eickhoff Mining Technology (Chair WG OPC UA Mining), Tobias Hartmann, RWTH Aachen, Advanced Mining Technologies and Jörn Lehmann, VDMA Mining
Date: Wednesday, May 6
Time: 10:00 A.M. (EDT) | 4:00 P.M. (UTC+2)
Length: 1.5 hour
Digitalization in mining requires a common language for data exchange between mining machines and the higher-level systems. The webinar will walk through “Open Platform Communication Unified Architecture” (OPC UA), its key benefits and the approach to jointly develop an application-oriented Companion Specification Mining.
ABOUT OPEN PLATFORM COMMUNICATION IN MINING INITIATIVE
Europe’s largest mechanical engineering association VDMA and the OPC Foundation Working Group is developing an Open Platform Communication Unified Architecture (OPC UA) information model for the communication among mining machinery, equipment and higher-level systems/devices in the respective processes.
The model is aligned with IREDES standards and provides a universal manufacturer-independent interface based on OPC UA. The OPC UA Companion Specification Mining includes a basic description of the mining machinery and equipment. It will support horizontal and vertical machine communication ensuring automated control, analytics and diagnostics. Below is an example of a diagram showing how various machinery, equipment, operations and processes could be organized with OPC UA.
