The TOP Server OPC UA Client Driver enables connectivity to local or remote OPC UA Servers from Software Toolbox or third parties. The OPC UA Client Driver has the ability to aggregate information collected from multiple OPC UA servers. When coupled with the TOP Server OPC UA Server interface, customers will enjoy additional ease-of-use benefits through the TOP Server OPC UA Certificate Management application and tools which enable quick and easy installation and configuration.
Once available in TOP Server, data from UA Servers can be shared using TOP Server’s OPC DA, DDE or native interfaces such as Wonderware Suitelink and GE iFix PDB, providing OPC UA client connectivity today for InTouch, System Platform, iFix or any OPC DA or DDE Client applications on the market.
The OPC UA Client driver supports the OPC Unified Architecture specification, a new technology that expands upon OPC Data Access. OPC UA communications, by pairing the TOP Server OPC UA Client Driver with a Remote TOP Server, is a powerful alternative for remote connectivity between Clients and Servers, offering a DCOM-free OPC UA tunnel solution.
