The UA series also connects IT to OT and integrates all the devices, as well as web-based apps into the cloud, allowing managers to improve production performance and enhance their factory competitiveness for Industrial IoT. Key features are:

• Built-in OPC UA server, the new industrial communication standard: the ability to connect IT to OT for integrating devices to the cloud to achieve cross-platform monitoring.
• Built-In MQTT Service: active IIoT transmission technology that is able to accelerate data exchange and make efficient use of network resources.
• Supports Logic Control IFTTT for devices connecting to over 500 web-based apps and transmitting alarm notifications to LINE, Facebook, Twitter, Calendar, Mail, and Sina Weibo, etc.
