  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
OPC is the standard communication channel between a PCS 7 plant and a third-party system. Here, questions are often asked about the performance of the OPC DA/UA server components of the PCS 7 system. For this we have selected three PCS 7 configurations and examined them for their OPC DA/UA performance.

The documentation is designed to help you plan a PCS 7 plant in which OPC communication is to be used.
The focus is on showing the OPC DA/UA performance in the PCS 7 standard configurations.
