Progea launches on the industrial automation market the product Connext, strong from his long story and know how in the industrial communication protocols and OPC UA. Connext is based on the Automation Platform.NExT technology, the industry’s leading automation platform that provides a single source of industrial automation data to all of your applications. The platform design allows users to connect, manage, monitor, and control diverse automation devices and software applications through one intuitive user interface. Connext leverages OPC UA (the automation industry’s standard for interoperability) and IT communication (such as SNMP, IIoT, ) to provide users with a single source for industrial data. The platform is developed and tested to meet our customers’ performance, reliability, and ease-of-use requirements.

Connext provides communication for a wide range of industrial and infrastructures devices and field-bus, and manages the OPC UA connection with any standard Client. Furthermore, it manages powerful features like Gateway, Historian, Alarms & Condition, IIoT, Redundancy.

Key Features:

OPC UA Server Certified

The Connext Server is OPC foundation-ready and supports the Data Access, Alarm & Conditions and
Historical Access specifications.

Cost Effective

Licenses are sized by the number of Tags in use. This means any tag type, such as bit, byte, word, float and double/long 64bit, connected to the field including those defined as structure or array members. The byte, word and other tag types can be pointed to one individual bit. (Note: Each Structure or Array member counts as one tag).

Tag Import

Each Connext communication protocol supports automatic importing of tags from the field or PLC for quick and easy communication configuring.

Gateway

Each Server tag in multi-driver configurations can be connected to several communication protocols simultaneously.
