Integration Objects releases OPC UA Wrapper

December 28, 2016 - Integration Objects announced the release of its OPC UA Wrapper product. Integration Objects is a software solutions provider specialized in operations and manufacturing intelligence, plant automation, command and control systems, cyber security and systems integration for the chemical, oil & gas, process and manufacturing industries, power and utilities and defense around the globe.

Integration Objects’ OPC UA Wrapper is a plug and play solution that enables OPC UA clients to communicate with classic OPC servers. It supports OPC Data Access, OPC Historical Data Access and OPC Alarms & Events servers.

OPC UA Wrapper acts as a bridge between classic OPC servers connected to the network and OPC UA clients by mapping the address space of classic OPC servers to the address space of an OPC UA server.

Integration Objects’ OPC UA Wrapper is a gateway that provides OPC Unified Architecture clients with access to COM/DCOM based OPC servers as if they were OPC UA servers. It supports not only multiple local and remote OPC DA/HDA/AE servers per service but also multiple wrapper services running at the same time. This multi-connected bridge exposes any OPC server data as OPC UA server’s data.

The OPC UA Wrapper supports two types of communication protocols: TCP and HTTP. All created wrappers run as services in the background.
OPC UA Wrapper includes a configuration tool that reduces configuration efforts. With this graphical user interface, users can create, edit, start, and stop services as well as configure security settings.

Integration objects’ OPC UA Wrapper provides security features introduced in the OPC UA specification such as establishing secure communication channels, keeping track of sessions, using encryption, and signing messages. The security modes to be used, along with user identity tokens, can be chosen, managed and changed by the user from the configuration tool.

The OPC UA Wrapper records messages in log files using different logging levels. This enables end users to track the execution and to diagnose any encountered problems.
