Kepware Technologies announced that its products were selected by the OPC Training Institute as its preferred demonstration product for use in OPC hands-on training workshops. The OPC Training Institute (OPCTI) will use Kepware OPC products and technology in their training classes and Webcasts %%MDASSML%% especially when demonstrating OPC server functionality and device connectivity. In addition, Kepware both endorses and promotes OPCTI activities and provides demonstration products and documentation to OPCTI for use in all training activities world-wide.
Designed for quick setup, Kepware’s latest generation OPC server technology, KEPServerEX, allows users to enable communications from equipment to control and business systems via a wide range of available "plug-in" device drivers and components.
“The OPC Training Institute is an excellent new venture, dedicated to promoting OPC standards and creating Certified OPC Professionals,” said Roy Kok, vice-president of sales and marketing for Kepware. “They deliver a valuable service to this industry and we are pleased to help them support the spread of OPC technology awareness around the globe.”
“Kepware is the leading provider of OPC and device communications in our industry,” said Randy Kondor, president of the OPC Training Institute. “It’s natural for us to select a widely-used product within industry as our demonstration platform. Many of our clients already use Kepware products and so they have a head start when attending our courses. Those new to OPC can get their OPC projects started quickly simply by downloading Kepware products from Kepware’s website. Kepware has been excellent to work with, delivering products and support as we need it around the world.”
“Kepware and the OPC Training Institute are doing a wonderful job in proving the benefits of OPC technology and expanding adoption around the world,” said Thomas Burke, president of the OPC Foundation. “Kepware is also an early adopter of OPC-UA technology and will play an important role in delivering our newest standards to the market. This relationship dramatically expands the reach of OPC and it should be beneficial to OPC users around the globe.”
