OPC UA (short for Open Platform Communications United Architecture) is a data exchange protocol for industrial communication that consists of a server and client part. The server part usually is located at a technical device and provides its machine-, process-, quality- and alarm-data to one or more clients. CNCnetPDM enables you to communicate with these servers, read, write and monitor selected items and output them to various targets.
CNCNETPDM STANDARD OPC UA CLIENT
The CNCnetPDM Standard OPC UA Client allows you to connect to any OPC UA compliant server and read/write data from/to it. It also supports monitoring of real-time data and calling of methods provided by the server.
