Complex real-time industrial systems need a distributed control system to function. The hierarchy includes a Human Machine Interface (HMI) for monitoring and operation of a system. This is linked to PLCs running IntervalZero RTX64/RTX via a communications system (e.g. EtherCAT). Finally fieldbuses link the PLCs/RTX64 to the components that do the work – sensors, actuators, electric motors, console lights, switches, valves and contactors. IntervalZero partners with Fieldbus developers worldwide who provide this critical link.

|OPC Foundation is the interoperability standard for the secure and reliable exchange of data in the industrial automation space and in other industries. It is platform independent and ensures the seamless flow of information among devices from multiple vendors. The OPC Foundation is responsible for the development and maintenance of this standard. its purpose was to abstract PLC specific protocols into a standardized interface allowing HMI/SCADA systems to interface with a “middle-man” who would convert generic-OPC read/write requests into device-specific requests and vice-versa.
|United Electronic Industries, Inc -The High Performance Alternative – is a supplier of high-end data-acquisition hardware and software.
