Software Toolbox Product First to be Certified for OPC UA Client Development
Posted 2014-03-15 18:09:54 by Software Toolbox
Software Toolbox announced that its OPC Data-UA toolkit is the first to be certified by the OPC Foundation for OPC UA client development.
It provides users with relief from common DCOM interoperability issues as well as increased control over security.
OPC’s Certification Test Lab puts products through a set of rigorous and defined tests required by OPC certification test specifications.
The tests are designed to determine if an OPC client product follows best practices for implementation of OPC and integrates well with other products. The extensive testing protocol includes clearly defined interoperability review against reference OPC servers from industry leaders such as ABB, Cyberlogic, Kepware, Matrikon and Siemens.
Tests also include extended analysis to assess memory leaks or instability, including studies conducted during periods of network disruption. The independent lab also intercepts OPC calls made between client and server and injects common and unusual errors into calls to ensure that the OPC client handles abnormal conditions in an orderly manner.
The OPC Data-UA toolkit, which is a component of Software Toolbox’s OPC Data Client product offering, allows users to rapidly develop a custom OPC UA client application in various environments. The OPC Foundation certification was awarded to the latest version of the toolkit.
