OPC UA over TSN will be the unified communication standard of the Industrial IoT. Standardization and ongoing development of OPC UA at the field level will take place under the umbrella of the OPC Foundation.
B&R's entry into the machine vision market is led by a smart sensor and a smart camera. Since the hardware is fully integrated in the automation system, the cameras can be synchronized to machine functions with microsecond precision.
The first fully integrated vision system combines two cutting-edge technologies: the HALCON machine vision library from MVTec and advanced control technology from B&R. This opens up new possibilities in industrial image processing.
