1. OPC UA specification version 1.00 released

 

PLCopen and the OPC Foundation are pleased to announce the official release of the specification OPC UA Information Model for IEC 61131-3, version 1.00.

 

The document can be downloaded from our website www.plcopen.org/pages/tc4_communication/.

 

PLCopen and the OPC Foundation joined forces in 2008 to combine their technologies to a platform and manufacturer-independent information and communication architecture. A combined working group was started, focused to the mix of OPC Unified Architecture (UA) and IEC 61131-3, which creates interesting options for the realization of automation structures. The objective of the combined technologies is to increase the efficiency of the engineering process and information exchange.
