OPC Classic and OPC UA Overview and Concepts
Covering the evolution of data connectivity from proprietary device interfaces and custom protocol translation to the latest in OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) data interoperability, this workshop is designed to give participants an understanding of basic OPC principles. The workshop provides an overview of both the OPC Classic and OPC UA Specifications and common use cases for applications that implement them. A critical component to understanding how these applications function is a basic knowledge of the underlying technology that supports OPC. This workshop explains how Microsoft’s COM/DCOM technology supports OPC Classic, and how the current version of OPC UA utilizes TCP/IP and other technologies to provide universal data connectivity in the 21st century industrial space. Along with the technology itself, the requirement for security has evolved over the last two decades, making it necessary to implement increasingly robust security mechanisms in the OPC data path. This workshop demonstrates the various security mechanisms implemented in OPC, from DCOM security provided by Windows for OPC Classic to the latest in digital signing and encryption technologies defined for OPC UA applications. Practical exercises and demonstrations in a simulated industrial environment reinforce the materials covered in the class.

Practical OPC UA and OPC Classic Applications and Troubleshooting
Building on the material in the Overview and Concepts workshop, this two-day workshop covers the pragmatic aspects of using OPC UA and OPC Classic applications in industrial settings. Moving data in a secure and reliable fashion, from the end-deveice where it is generated to the application(s) used to analyze, visualize, and historize the data has always been one of the major challenges in modern process control and automation systems. Network traversal, data integration, archive migration and synchronization, and guaranteed delivery of data are some of the many challenges with which we are faced. This workshop demonstrates how OPC applications can be used to overcome these and other challenges, via a series of practical exercises that enhance participants’ knowledge of OPC functionality. The last section of the workshop focuses on tools and techniques used in troubleshooting common issues within the OPC data path. The practical session consists of a series of troubleshooting exercises that challenge participants to apply all the information they gained from this and the previous workshop to isolate, identify, and resolve faults in a simulated industrial environment.

OPC Training - OPC UA Embedded Server Software Development (SDK)
OPC Training - OPC UA Embedded Server Software Development (SDK) OPC UA Embedded Server Software Development Workshop is designed to give students an understanding of what is OPC UA and Embedded Server SDK along with the design concepts, the API, and basic integration steps. Participants will learn how to interact with a variety of embedded targets running SDK, learn about advanced SDK concepts such as security, memory management etc. Also, they will learn tips and tricks about dealing with the SDK and Troubleshooting and practical exercises. This workshop requires strong programming skills from its participants. It is designed for application developers, programmers, and anyone planning to use the MatrikonOPC UA Embedded Server SDK to develop OPC UA servers. System integrators, process control engineers, and IT professionals working in the process control environment will find this workshop useful if their position requires development or customization of OPC UA servers.
