XHQ Operations Intelligence Software V6.0 – improved performance and end-user experience

• Simplified integration of engineering data
• Server virtualization support increases efficiency and performance
• New Edge functionality provides better and more secure access to remote data
• HTML5-based, new web browser client

Siemens launches the new release V 6.0 of their flagship XHQ Operations Intelligence with enhanced performance while increasing the overall usability at the same time. With the new version, users benefit from numerous enhancements such as edge functionality. With an end-to-end secured site integration and light weight installation, this provides easy and secure access to remote/distributed data from all production (operation) and enterprise levels.

Simple machine integration with OPC UA interface

• Data interface according to OMAC PackML
• First implementation of companion specification in a controller

Siemens has succeeded in implementing an OPC UA data interface in a Simatic S7-1500 controller according to a companion specification. The OMAC PackML (Packaging Machine Language) makes it easier for end customers and line integrators to integrate packaging machines and connect them to line or MES systems, thus simplifying the evaluation and control of individual machines.
