The OPC Foundation is dedicated to ensuring interoperability in automation by creating and maintaining open specifications that standardize the communication of acquired process data, alarm and event records, historical data, and batch data to multi-vendor enterprise systems and between production devices. Production devices include sensors, instruments, PLCs, RTUs, DCSs, HMIs, historians, trending subsystems, alarm subsystems, and more as used in the process industry, manufacturing, and in acquiring and transporting oil, gas, and minerals. The vision of OPC is to be the foundation for INTEROPERABILITY for moving information vertically from the factory floor through the enterprise of multi-vendor systems as well as providing INTEROPERABILITY between devices on different industrial networks from different vendors.
