As per May 1st, 2015, Softing Industrial Automation adopts a service oriented model for its OPC UA .NET Development Toolkits.
Softing’s new offering combines a free license for the use of the OPC UA .NET Development Toolkits with a 3-year maintenance and support agreement which supersedes the previous fee-based license acquisition. The new model offers free-of-charge upgrades to new toolkit versions as well as premium support by Softing specialists. Users have the advantage of a reduced initial investment and lower total cost of ownership for the use of OPC UA technology. At the same time, they benefit from Softing’s long-standing technical expertise. Cristian Pogacean, Product Manager OPC at Softing, says: “As a specialist in OPC technology with a long-standing experience, we would like to emphasize our strong commitment to long-term customer relations with this new model and share with our customers our ongoing support of the OPC technology.”
Softing’s OPC Development Toolkits allow the rapid integration of OPC Classic and OPC UA in automation applications. A comprehensive collection of libraries is part of the scope of delivery and enables fast time-to-market for programs with OPC functionality. The collection includes a comfortable, clearly documented programming interface, associated sample applications and test- and simulation tools.
