OPC UA SDK FOR EMBEDDED TARGETS

  OPC UA SDK  

If it’s free, why do I need a partner?

We focus on helping customers implement OPC UA into their embedded products right from the smallest sensors to more powerful PLCs and edge gateways. We can help you:

  • Learn the technology
  • Integrate it in your products
  • Certify to comply with standards

Commercial support for open62541

Kalycito OPC UA Client Server SDK for embedded targets is based on open62541 – an open-source implementation of OPC UA specification. We have certifiable ports of open62541 available on different hardware and different operating system combinations with which we can help you speed up:

  • Prototyping and proof of concept projects
  • Embedded memory foot print and performance measurements
  • Preparation for certification of your embedded OPC UA implementations
  • Annual maintenance packages and priority support for critical bug-fixes

Certified by OPC Foundation

open62541 is a free and open source software maintained by a community of developers and users. The certified release v1.0 was prepared by Fraunhofer IOSB and Kalycito Infotech with funding from an industry consortium via the Open Source Automation Development Lab (OSADL) eG.

The certified feature set of open62541 v1.0 is in conformance with the ‘Micro Embedded Device Server’ Profile of OPC Foundation supporting OPC UA client/server communication, subscriptions, method calls and security (encryption) with the security policies ‘Basic128Rsa15’, ‘Basic256′ and Basic256Sha256’ and the facets ‘method server’ and ‘node management’. open62541 also implements OPC UA publisher/subscriber communication.

 

OPC UA & Time Sensitive Networking

Today, the biggest challenge companies face when exploring new business opportunities is interoperability and solving this challenge will unlock the potential of Industry 4.0. We are thought leaders in this space. The new initiative by the OPC Foundation – OPC UA FLC promises vendor independent and end-to-end connectivity from sensor to cloud. We build on top of this major global initiative.

We are pioneers in building the open source eco-system for OPC UA including TSN. We started early and released PubSub in open source immediately after OPC Foundation released the part 14 specification. Even companies who hold proprietary IP in one part of what we do, leverage our work on other parts of the ecosystem to address their customer use cases. Our goal is to be a single eco-system for all the work involved in the Industry 4.0 end point device and edge device platforms, that includes optimizing the OS for real-time performance, time synchronization, functional and configuration parts of OPC UA, TSN and security. The following architecture diagram shows the different components that are part of an Industry 4.0 edge/end-point device.
