OPC UA Pub/Sub is the solution for high efficient, performant and vendor independent standardized control to control (C2C) communication. Additional use cases are the communication between ctrlX CORE and MES or data acquisition systems.
Sample Topology OPC UA FX (Field eXchange) The OPC UA Pub/Sub App publishes data from the ctrlX CORE real-time Datalayer and writes subscribed data to the real-time data Datalayer.
