OPC UA support with Simulink Real-Time and Speedgoat real-time target machines allows your control algorithms and simulation models to exchange data with external OPC UA-enabled devices and systems in industrial plants. OPC UA is a communication standard for IoT and Industry 4.0, allowing seamless interoperability between applications, devices, machines, and IT systems. Data exchange from the sensor to the cloud empowers users to simulate and test applications on the plant, the operation, and the enterprise level.
Vision and control applications in manufacturing and other sectors such as recycling, pharma and chemicals, and oil and gas use OPC UA. Most controllers from Siemens, Beckhoff and Phoenix Contact, and Microsoft's Azure cloud support this protocol.
Speedgoat provides Simulink driver blocks for OPC UA client and server operation on the system's Ethernet interfaces.
