Overview

Description

Openness, Productivity and Connectivity or Open Platform Communications (OPC) is mainly designed to provide a common communication bridge for Windows-based software applications and process control hardware. Specification of OPCs are based on the OLE, COM, and DCOM technologies  
OLE stands for Object Linking and Embedding. It allows you to create objects with one application and then link them in a second application. OLE supports software applications like Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint, Corel WordPerfect, Adobe Acrobat, AutoCAD etc.
This course is designed to help students to understand the basic Principles of OPC in detail.
After completion of this course, students will know about the latest development in OPC, OPC – overview & Data Access specification, Alarms & Events and Historical Data Access etc.

Instructor

Brian Hobby

BE (Electrical and Electronic) Auckland University

Brian has 20 plus years of engineering experience. He thinks in systems and the connections between them as a result of his time as a Naval Weapons Electrical Engineering Officer.

As a design, commissioning and project engineer with Rio Tinto Alcan he oversaw the first application of devicenet in an aluminium smelting environment and assisted with piloting fully automated anode changing.

More recently he has been involved with collecting data from process using the OSISoft historian and using their toolset for analysis.  His experience with networking goes back to becoming the accidental sysadmin for a Novell Netware system in the early 1990’s and has been a part of his roles ever since.

He is now ISA99 qualified and currently works for Griffith University as a Technical Lead (IT and Engineering) where he is assisting in collecting and analysing data in support of their sustainability initiatives.
