OPC UA Client Driver Details

This driver is a member of the TOP Server OPC Client Suite.  When you download or purchase the OPC Client Suite, this driver is included along with all the TOP Server built-in features.  This driver can be used to aggregate data from a number of OPC UA Servers and made available to clients of the TOP Server through all supported interfaces, like OPC DA, OPC UA, SuiteLink, NIO/PDB and DDE. This provides the ability to connect to any OPC UA Server and connect your Wonderware, iFix or DDE Client through it’s native interface.

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.
