February 23, 2012 - Softing announces V1.00 OPC UA .NET Development Toolkit. Based on OPC Foundation sample code, it offers increased usability through an optimized application programming interface (API), improved documentation and additional sample projects. The Softing OPC UA .NET Development Toolkits V1.00 enable developers to build OPC UA clients and servers for moving data and information from the factory floor to the enterprise level in their preferred .NET development environment. Softing’s OPC UA .NET Client Development Toolkit is aimed at supervisory control and human-machine interface software application providers, while the OPC UA .NET Server Development Toolkit is aimed at manufacturers of automation equipment, such as controllers, drives and sensors. The OPC UA .NET Client Development Toolkit V1.00 will replace the .NET API of Softing’s existing OPC UA Client Development Toolkit Version 5.11. Currently, the Softing OPC portfolio comprises 20 versions of OPC Development Toolkits for classic OPC or Unified Architecture covering e.g. Data Access (DA), Alarms & Events (AE) and XML-DA for Windows, Windows CE, Linux or VxWorks.
“With its rapid deployment tools, Softing’s OPC UA .NET Development Toolkit will accelerate adoption of OPC UA by simplifying product development,” says Thomas Burke, president and executive director of OPC Foundation. “The Softing product(s) provide quality rapid deployment of OPC UA products seamlessly for the Microsoft platform(s) as well as the embedded market.”
