How to integrate IDS NXT cameras into factory automation using OPC UA?
A software update provides IDS NXT cameras with another future-oriented component for seamless integration into factory automation. A plugin integrates an OPC UA server into the cameras. Equipped with OPC UA through a software update, they make their AI capabilities available via a "recipe collection" in the network and communicate results directly from the field level to the machine and control level without detour.
OPC UA is the ideal supplement for IDS NXT cameras to make camera configurations and Vision App-based inference tasks in industrial environments accessible in a format that is compatible and readable for OPC UA clients. OPC UA is therefore the ideal Industry 4.0 add-on for your IDS NXT cameras.
