OPC UA

What is OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA)?

OPC UA is a platform-independent communications standard developed by the OPC foundation, USA.
It enables data exchange between vendor and OS neutral products, and offers secure and reliable data communications between manufacturing levels and higher-level IT systems.

Connectable to OPC UA communication

OPC UA is architecture for information exchange between an application and a device.
In a format corresponding to FX5-OPC, information is exchanged between OPC UA client (an external application or device) and OPC UA server (FX5-OPC).
Information to be exchanged is composed of objects and references as a set. The dedicated protocol constructed in TCP/IP network layers is used for information exchange.
OPC UA communication is suitable for use in all networks including the Internet due to robust end-to-end security.
