OPC UA Connectivity to Rockwell Automation® Controllers
OPC United Architecture (UA) continues to be a preferred method to interconnect industrial control systems securely and reliably for Industry 4.0 and Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) initiatives. OPC UA is the latest OPC standard created for industrial applications by the OPC Foundation, and combines their existing standards, such as OPC DA, OPC A&E, and OPC HDA, into a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) which is platform independent.
NEC Class 2 DC Circuit
The NEC refers to such circuits as Class 2 circuits – the portion of the wiring system between the load side of a Class 2 power source and the connected equipment. Due to its power limitations, a Class 2 circuit is considered safe from a fire initiation standpoint and provides acceptable protection from electrical shock. They are used to minimize electric shock hazard. The standard in Article 725, requires that low voltage DC circuits have a maximum voltage limit essentially the same as that defined in IEC 60950-1.
