OPC Unified Architecture

OPC UA: 5 Things Everyone Needs To Know

OPC UA covers a wide range of topics and functionality, but what people really want to know is: What is it, how does it help me, and where can I get it?



February 2009 marked the final release of the OPC Unified Architecture (UA) Phase One Deliverables. The more people hear about OPC UA, the more questions that seem to arise.

Not to mention questions about security, scalability and backwards compatibility.
