Welcome to the Software Toolbox OPC UA Portal. With the rising interest in the emerging OPC UA standards, we've built this portal to share with our valued clients what we know about OPC UA and to keep you informed of our plans. We were a Charter Member of the OPC Foundation and we've been active in the OPC Foundation for 15 years!
The OPC UA standards are an evolution on the existing OPC standards that has been designed by the OPC Foundation to supplement, but not obsolete the existing OPC standards such as DA, HDA, & A&E. OPC UA is being designed to make enterprise level integration easier, while insuring compatibility and interoperability with existing OPC DA, HDA, and A&E servers and clients. There are a lot of great things about OPC UA, but it is a lot to get your arms around. We know because Software Toolbox has been active in the OPC UA standards development process and has seen what's there. It's a lot!
So over the coming weeks and months, we’ll be publishing information here that will help to inform you about OPC UA as well as our plans for OPC UA products. Read this paper for a good start on learning more on OPC UA.
Like many leading OPC Foundation member companies, Software Toolbox has contributed developer resources to the OPC UA effort in numerous ways and continues to be a part of this important standards effort:
