MatrikonOPC UA Wrapper for COM OPC Servers


OPC Classic and OPC UA Interoperability

Even though OPC UA is next generation of OPC classic standard, they are not interoperable due to technology advancement used in the OPC UA. Classic OPC is based on Windows technology called COM/DCOM. So it will always be tied to Windows. OPC UA uses its own stack for communication and it employs TCP\IP at the wire level to optimize the data transfer between 2 OPC UA Servers. It enables it to Supports any platform that supports TCP/IP. It does not have to be Windows, or even need an operating system. This brings end user a new set of a challenge where it needs to use OPC Classic and OPC UA technology in the same setup and establish communication between this 2 technologies. MatrikonOPC UA Wrapper and Matrikon OPC UA Proxy can do this effectively.

Matrikon OPC UA Wrapper

  • The UA Wrapper installs on a Windows host
  • Acts as a gateway converter from Classic to UA
  • Can do Classic and UA OPC communication
  • Allows multiple connection
An UA Wrapper is essentially an “UA Server” which internally uses OPC DA Client to pull data from other OPC classic servers. It exposed UA server interfaces to UA clients and internally host an OPC classic classic client as shown in the picture below.

MatrikonOPC UA Wrapper for COM OPC Servers

Use Cases:
Matrikon OPC UA Wrapper can be used in a variety of Use cases. Given below are 3 most common use case.

MatrikonOPC UA Wrapper for COM OPC Servers

1st Case:
In the above case, Matrikon OPC UA Wrapper can be installed on a machine where Classic OPC COM Server is running and it will connect to Classic server using Local COM Communication. UA client running on Remote machine can connect to this UA wrapper which is now acting as a UA Server exposing the classic COM Data in the UA format.

2nd Case:
Matrikon OPC UA Wrapper can be installed on a machine where OPC UA Client is running and it will connect to Classic server using Remote DCOM Communication.

3rd Case:
This is the most common case where UA Wrapper is used in most optimized way. As can see be seen from Diagram UA Wrapper is connected to “Local” OPC Classic Server as well as to an OPC Server running in a Remote machine.
