OPC UA Server Module
The MELSEC iQ-R Series OPC UA server module integrates the OPC UA server directly into the equipment control system as a robust alternative to a computer-based configuration. OPC Unified Architecture (OPC-UA) is a platform-independent communications standard developed by the OPC foundation that offers reliable and secure data communications between the manufacturing-level and IT-level systems.
Embedded OPC UA server improves system reliability and reduces cost
The OPC UA server module can be installed directly on the MELSEC iQ-R Series base unit realizing an embedded OPC UA server within the machine. This improves reliability by eliminating the requirement for a computer-based server, which can be vulnerable to high security risks such as computer viruses. Less hardware maintenance is required, reducing overall system cost as industrial control systems have a longer product service life compared to computers. Efficient tag data management provided utilizing data structure format and storage of tag names within the equipment. Implementation of an IT system is improved such as with SCADA simply by selecting the stored tag.
Reduce overall development time with easy-to-use configuration software
Utilizing MX OPC UA Module Configuration-R, intuitive features such as the wizard-based settings can substantially reduce development time, enable easy registration of tag data and simplify server module maintenance.
Flexible configuration supports seamless connectivity
The MELSEC iQ-R Series OPC UA server module enables data collection through seamless communication between an OPC UA client and MELSEC-Series controllers, such as the MELSEC iQ-R Series, Q Series and L Series. Seamless connectivity is supported on CC-Link IE, CC-Link and Ethernet-based networks, supporting utilization with both new and existing control systems.
Robust security with protection against unauthorized data access
OPC UA security function such as certificate, encrypt and signature can be set based on system requirements. Security is enhanced by having two Ethernet ports, enabling separation of the IT and shop floor networks.
