This two-day workshop covers the evolution of data connectivity from proprietary data connectivity and custom protocol translation to the latest in OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) data interoperability. The workshop provides an overview of the OPC Specifications and common use cases for applications that implement them. Participants will gain an understanding of:
- the communication fundamentals related to OPC client and server based architectures;
- the principles of data connectivity to the end devices which are the building blocks of a modern industrial process control system;
- the basic functionality of OPC based applications and the underlying technology behind OPC UA and OPC Classic.
This workshop is delivered in a series of presentations interspersed with practical exercises to demonstrate and reinforce the concepts presented.
