Schwabach March 31, 2011

Dear OPC UA Enthusiast,

We are pleased to present our first Unified Automation Newsletter in new design.
We want to keep you informed about new product releases and tools we develop at Unified Automation GmbH. In addition we give details about trainings, seminars, workshops and upcoming OPC events. Not to bother you with frequent emailing, we decided to publish this newsletter quarterly.
In this edition we announce the release of our new version 1.3.0 of the C++ based OPC UA SDK. There is a free evaluation version of the worldwide most selling OPC SDK available for download.

Hope you enjoy reading.

Yours sincerely
Jürgen Boxberger
CEO Unified Automation GmbH

Meet us at "Hannover Messe"

Products of Unified Automation will be shown on the OPC Foundation booth (Hall 9, A15). Come to Hannover Messe on April 4th to 8th, visit us and find out more on OPC Unified Architecture, our new OPC UA SDK and runtime products. We will have live demonstration available.

C++ based OPC UA SDK V1.3.0 released

Unified Automation released version 1.3.0 of the most used C++ SDK for OPC Unified Architecture. As usual the cross-platform server and client frameworks are available as bundle or solely as client or server framework. This release includes some major enhancements. Besides several improvements the new server-side features have been added: DA Compliance Tested using latest UA-CTT, A&C Previous Instances Server Facet, Auditing Server Facet, Client Redundancy Facet (TransferSubscription), Redundancy Visible Server Facet. On the client-side support for additional profile has been added: Redundancy Switch Client Facet (TransferSubscription). Also the documentation has been updated and the client getting started tutorial has been reworked; the server getting started lesson 7 shows Historical Access.

Again there is a fully functional evaluation demo available for download from our website. 

UaModeler released - "turn Design into Code"

The UaModeler helps you designing your information model and integrating it in your application by generating the necessary source code.
The generated code exactly fits into the related SDK. The UaModeler provides graphical design of address space, adding nodes and references and finally generates code by pressing a button, thus it not only speeds up the implementation, it also increases the software quality by producing well structured, error-free code. As implementation is reduced to modeling and generating even complex models can be implemented very quickly. This tool gives all the SDKs from Unified Automation, the lead ahead on the OPC UA toolkit market.

The UaModeler shows hierarchical and graphical representation of the designed model. The graphical representation follows the OPC UA notation and syntax. The standard OPC UA, PLCopen and DI information models are already included in the download package.
The UaModeler is downloadable for Linux and Windows for free from our website.
