With OPC UA independence from the Windows Operating System, the new development kit has two new flavors: C++ and .NET. The .NET kit guarantees the rapid development of conformant OPC UA client or server products that integrate with the standard Windows development tools like Visual Studio. The C++ kit is designed to implement dedicated, OPC products or for embedding OPC UA technology into a targeted device.
During field-testing, the development kits achieved outstanding performance levels demanded by the company’s quality standards, the company affirms. One feature of the new toolkits includes a built-in upgrade path for OPC products that are based on Softing’s OPC Toolbox V4.2x. Other benefits are OPC compliance, reduced time-to-market costs and maintenance, and improved data throughput and development services.
