Any ideas to have an aggregated opcua server on ctrlx and client on a cloud VM? Our plan is to connect to a Siemens MES System communicating through OPCUA (subscribe as client). I have heard of Device bridge and could not find further information how device bridge could act as an OPCUA Sever. It would be nice if someone could answer my question. Please do not hesitate to ask any further details.

The DeviceBridge has no OPC UA server inside. If you need an OPC UA server inside your ctrlX CORE to communicate with the Siemens MES, you can use the ctrlX CORE - OPC UA server app from Bosch Rexroth. If you already use the DeviceBridge to collect data from different controls, you need to write the data into the DataLayer. The data inside the DataLayer is accessible for the Siemens OPC UA client by the OPC UA server. You can limit the data access/view (user dependent) by using scopes.
