.NET Client SDK V2.0.0 - Release

The .NET based OPC UA Client SDK is finally released. This SDK is a pure .NET implementation with new designed API. The final release adds "Getting Started" tutorials, an example suite that gives even none-UA experts an easy introduction to implementing UA products. The SDK comes with two UA Client implementations in full source code, a simple basic example for beginners and a sophisticated full client demonstrating secure connection, browse, read/write and subscribe. The SDK features of the latest OPC Specification can be used with VS2008 or VS2010. It runs on .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and 4.0.

Evaluation download available.

OPC News
The OPC Foundation has finally released the OPC UA Specification 1.02. Version 1.02 is mainly a maintenance release. It is an update with numerous clarifications and a few bug fixes.. After nearly two years the new spec adds four major features:

  • 1) Historical Access and Aggregates
  • 2) HTTPS Protocol Binding
  • 3) File Objects and File Transfer.
  • 4) XML Schema for Information Model
The new Historical Access Specification allows starting full HA implementations on server and client side. The HTTPS binding defines hybrid protocol having UA binary data within a HTTPS message frame. The new file transfer enables clients and servers sending large files across secured UA connection. An XML Schema was defined and standardized to fully express address space information.
