OPCUA Third-party integration
OPCUA is the industrial standard for communication between controllers and third-party software and hardware. It is a manufacturer-independent protocol that is being adapted by many PLC manufacturers. Following the server-client approach, some PLCs are starting to integrate the OPCUA inside their CPUs, allowing seamless communication. The OPCUA driver in the gateway may be able to communicate with any device that has a server implemented.
The following are some instructions to enable OPCUA capabilities in different third-party software.
