Ignition Discovery Day

Ignition Discovery Day is back in Orlando and we hope you can join us! Attend this half-day seminar that takes place at the conclusion of the ARC Industry Forum. Opto 22's Benson Hougland will be one of the featured guest speakers.

Tools for the Digital Transformation Trade

Digital Transformation increases performance and efficiency, and reduces unplanned maintenance and downtime, thus leading to increased revenue and market share and, ultimately, increased profits. The convergence of operational and information technologies has been at the forefront of industry conversations for several years now, but how does this idea work in the real world? In order to take advantage of these new technologies, companies must bridge the OT-IT gap and feed IT infrastructures with data that is secure, easily consumable, and cost-effective. 

This seminar will describe how American Water and CHS have excelled in their Digital Transformation journeys by utilizing best-of-breed tools to implement an open-standard architecture solution.

Registration is free  - snacks and dinner provided.

Webinar: Secure and Democratize the Data in Your Customer’s Brownfield OT Devices

Hosted by the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA), Opto 22 will be presenting a webinar as part of the CSIA Master Class Demo series: Secure and Democratize the Data in Your Customer's Brownfield OT Devices.

There are millions of legacies, brownfield OT devices at your customer sites still dutifully performing the tasks they were designed for. However, these same devices are struggling to find their place in today’s digital transformation initiatives, largely due to lack of security and no support for modern IIoT protocols and payloads. 

However, with the gateway functions built into edge programmable industrial controllers (EPICs), you can now add critical cybersecurity features to your legacy systems, while simultaneously democratizing the valuable operational data they harness. Using Opto 22’s groov EPIC, this presentation will show you step-by-step how to securely protect and integrate brownfield PLCs and their operational data into a modern IIoT infrastructure.
