OPC Solutions

OPC UA Client and Server

OPC UA Client and Server

Openness, Productivity and Connectivity – unified architecture, now including Alarms and Conditions

Client

  • Parallel connection to multiple external UA servers
  • Subscription to values without programming
  • Write values without programming
  • Current subscription values are automatically available in the process image
  • API for OPC UA Method Call
  • Library of PLCopen function blocks included for easier programming
  • Library of C/C++ functions also included

Server Data Access

  • Maps the supply of variables of the controller in the address space
  • Address space can be modelled entirely independently of the controller software in order to emulate Companion Specifications
  • Takes into consideration the user-specific access rights to variables which are managed in the M1 system
  • Logging of write accesses

Server Alarms & Conditions

  • Automatic monitoring of variable values
  • Discrete alarms and level alarms (High, HighHigh etc.)
  • Selectable predefined acknowledge models
  • Configuration (variables, limits etc.) in CSV format, configurator integrated in the SolutionCenter
  • Discrete alarms are also possible without reference to a variable
  • Extensive API for PLC function block library and C/C++: Generation and changing of monitoring tasks, acknowledge, status queries etc.
