netIOT-Interface OPC UA

NXS-NIOT-OPC, netIOT Interface Workshop

Add I4.0 functionality with OPC UA Server to your PROFINET or EtherNet/IP based applications on the netX 51/52

This workshop enables you to add functions of the I4.0 to your application, provided that you are using a LOM model with an own application on the netX chip. The protocol stack OPC UA Server and the required connection layer netPROXY will be introduced and integrated into your project.
In both theoretical training blocks and practical exercises, you will learn the functions of the protocols and the necessary adjustments to your project. After successfully completing the workshop, you have created a first simple netX application that is able to run in your project. You can use the underlying software project, on which you have worked in the practical exercises, as a basis for your own development.
The practical exercises will be performed using a Hilscher evaluation board or your own hardware.
