14. - 15. May 2014, Stuttgart (Germany)

190 participants from 15 countries took part in the conference "OPC Day Europe", which was hosted by the company FESTO in Esslingen. Certec, as a member of the OPC Foundation and pioneer in OPC UA technology, were represented with its own booth at this event of the OPC Foundation and showed the advantages of the OPC UA standard based atvise scada solution. At the conference it became clear that one is well prepared with OPC UA for the challenges of the "Industry 4.0" (see brochure "OPC UA - pioneer of the industry 4.0"). On the event itself experts gave information on technical updates on OPC and OPC UA, information modeling and certification.

We look forward welcoming you next year at this event.


As reported, atvise® scada (2.3 and above) is using libraries with the "Heartbleed Bug" but wasn't affected by known attacks.

We now face new kinds of attacks found nearly daily, trying to exploit this weakness.

To be on the safe side, we therefore decided to distribute the new libraries (OpenSSL 1.0.1g), where the "Heartbleed Bug" is fixed itself.

We highly recommend to download the new DLL and install it on all systems where SSL in atvise® scada 2.3 and above is being used.

The DLLs and the install instructions can be found here:

For atvise scada on the atvise box no update is needed!

Please distribute this information to your customers.

We apologize for any inconveniences and thank you for your assistance.

Merry Christmas and peaceful holidays
