With smarter, more complex devices, including everything from input/output (I/O) to flowmeters, simplicity is key to help users get the most out of their devices.
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) strategies offer endless productivity improvements through smart devices and systems that link machines through open platforms and enable them to think, learn and react in real-time.
While the converging worlds of information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) have different interests and requirements, it does open the door to innovative Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions – like digital twins.
FDT Group named Steve Biegacki as the group's managing director starting in 2022.
FDT 3.0 Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) standard enables open automation transformation. See video.
Companies designing next-generation IIoT devices must produce enhanced functionality within limited time and budgets, but leveraging developer toolkits can increase efficiency and interoperability.
The FDT OPC UA companion specification empowers FDT data-centric Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) platform enabling uniform IT/OT data access to the enterprise.
Easier digital transformation and innovative industrial automation business models are expected to result from the FDT Group’s platform independent FDT 3.0 – IIoT Server (FITS) platform to help with control system integration in automation supplier and end-user communities in the process, hybrid and discrete markets.
FDT Group and ODVA are partnering together for FDT’s 3.0 architecture solution by incorporating FDT IIoT Server (FITS), to the common industrial protocol (CIP).
FDT Group announced the release of its updated developer tools, known as Common Components, which are designed to enhance interoperability while accelerating time to market.
