OPC UA Solutions

OPC Unified Architecture

OPC UA is a platform independent, open-source standard designed to ensure interoperability, security and reliability in industrial communications. It offers service-oriented architecture that supports both client-server and publish-subscribe communication patterns. Through information modeling it provides a framework to structure and represent complex data, enabling seamless understanding between devices and systems.

Today OPC UA is widely recognized as the key enabler for Industry 4.0. It creates one of the largest communication ecosystems in industrial domain and thousands of mission critical systems trust OPC UA as the backbone for data exchange.

Benefits of OPC UA

  • Platform independent and scalable: OPC UA enables platform and manufacturer-independent connectivity through a standard communication interface
  • Secure: Provides security mechanisms while remaining firewall friendly.
  • Fault tolerant and reliable: Achieved through error handling and redundancy for high availability
  • Industrial interoperability: Standardized interfaces and information modeling
  • Fast development cycle: SDKs and tools available for several programming languages

OPC UA Services

Wapice provides consulting, training, implementation and complete solutions using well-known toolkits and components. Building on the deep knowledge in industrial domain, we can brainstorm your project idea to find the best solution for you. By engaging with our experts you can ensure that right tools and methods are utilized from the very beginning of the project!

Legacy OPC System Solutions

Product lifecycles in industrial automation systems are very long and updating to never revisions is expensive. For this reason, legacy protocols like Modbus, OPC classic DA and OPC classic HDA are still widely used in industry. By converting these legacy protocols to OPC UA it is possible to guarantee industrial interoperability and cloud connectivity with secure and reliable manner. We can help you taking into use industry standard solutions that enable protocol conversion from legacy protocol to OPC UA or other modern and secure communication protocol with ease.
