OPC Unified Architecure (UA) is a standard for industrial communication and data ex-change in the production. It is used for machine-to-machine communication and is ba-saed on a service-oriented architecture (SOA). OPC-UA is successor of the classic OPC which today is often used today in the production.

Fraunhofer IOSB is corporate member of the OPC Foundation. We use OPC UA in re-search, consulting and development projects and work with different SDKs (Software Development Kit).

To simplify the work with OPC UA, we provide the following services:

  1. Workshop “Introduction to OPC UA”
  2. OPC UA consulting
  3. OPC UA development assistance and support
  4. Specification of OPC UA information models
  5. Combination of OPC UA with other standards e. g. Automation ML
  6. OPC UA client/server development
  7. OPC UA user assistance tools
