The second MatrikonOPC webcast in the OPC Unified Architecture (UA) Series provides you with an overview of the impact OPC UA technology will have on the architectures of both new and existing OPC installations.
Continuing where the “OPC Unified Architecture (UA) – A Higher Level Overview” webcast left off, this webcast explores how OPC UA technology will affect existing OPC Classic architectures from a setup and an End-User perspective.
Striking a balance between high-level content and detailed information, this introduction gives viewers a clear understanding of how the OPC UA and OPC Classic technologies will work together in a common OPC architecture.
Main teaching points:
How OPC UA and OPC Classic components will interact with each other and the
The different OPC UA communication methods and how they will be used
How OPC UA Clients can discover OPC UA Servers
OPC Server Federation
Introduction to OPC UA Data Modeling – what it does
OPC Security: Two key aspects
Unified Architecture (UA) is the next step in the evolution of the de-facto standard for open, vendor neutral connectivity: OPen Connectivity (OPC). Like its predecessor, OPC Classic, OPC UA bridges applications and control automation hardware throughout the enterprise: from the shop floor to the top floor. As an open standard, OPC UA provides a consistent method of accessing data from virtually any device regardless of the type and source of data.
