OPC UA Server and Client

OPC UA Server and Client

Openness, Productivity and Connectivity – Unified Architecture

  • Data Access according to OPC UA specification
  • Is installed as additional service on the controller
  • Quality is granted by participation at Interop workshops and conformance tests

Server

  • Displays the process values of the controller in its address space without additional configuration steps
  • Reduction of variable pool is possible by optional configuration
  • Adress space may be arranged independant of the controller software architecture by optional configuration
  • Considers access permissions on variables at reading and writing
  • Write access can be logged

Client

  • Connection to multiple external UA servers
  • Subscription of values also without programming
  • Write values without programming
  • Current values from subscriptions are automatically available in the process image and HMI
  • API for OPC UA Method Call
  • Operation from the application program by function blocks to PLCopen
  • Functional interface for the application from C/C++
