Integration Objects: OPC UA Wrapper

Name *: Integration Objects: OPC UA Wrapper
Description *: 
The OPC UA Wrapper enables OPC UA clients to communicate with classic OPC servers. It supports OPC Data Access, OPC Historical Data Access, and OPC Alarms & Events servers. The wrapper acts as a bridge between classic OPC servers connected to the network and OPC UA clients by mapping the address space of classic OPC servers to the address space of an OPC UA server.

The wrapper is also a gateway that gives OPC Unified Architecture clients access to COM/DCOM-based OPC servers as if they were OPC UA servers. It supports not only multiple local and remote OPC DA/HDA/AE servers per service, but also multiple wrapper services running at the same time. This multiconnected bridge exposes any OPC server data as the OPC UA server’s data.

The OPC UA Wrapper supports two types of communication protocols: TCP and HTTP. All created wrappers run as services in the background. The wrapper includes a configuration tool that reduces configuration efforts. With this graphical user interface, users can create, edit, start, and stop services and configure security settings. Security features include establishing secure communication channels, keeping track of sessions, using encryption, and signing messages. The security modes to be used, along with user identity tokens, can be chosen, managed, and changed by the user from the configuration tool. The wrapper records messages in log files using different logging levels, so end users can track the execution and diagnose problems.
