The patented MX-AOPC UA Server offers both polling and non-polling architectures alongside the standard OPC UA protocol, giving users the alternative of pull- or push-based communication from Moxa’s devices. With push technology, I/O status is updated to MX-AOPC UA Server only when there is an I/O status change, a pre-configured interval is reached, or when a request is issued by a user. This application of push technology cuts metadata overhead, resulting in faster I/O response times and more accurate data collection than traditional pull-based architectures. With Moxa’s “active technology” advantage, users can now instantly receive alarms and real time updates, allowing for timely risk response. The MX-AOPC UA Suite includes MX-AOPC UA Server, Viewer, and Logger, which are all based on the OPC UA (Unified Architecture) standard. OPC UA is the next generation OPC standard (IEC 62541), which provides a cohesive, secure, and reliable framework for accessing real-time and historical data. MX-AOPC UA Server not only inherits Moxa’s patented active monitoring technology, but also supports Modbus protocol for polling data, to provide a secure and MX-AOPC UA Server supports automatic tag generation, which eliminates the headache of specifying individual target IP addresses, I/O channels, and data formats, and does away with the need to edit and import configuration files. Working from Moxa’s utilities, users only need to select specific tags, set the update criteria, and then click a single button for their active tags to be automatically generated and configured. First OPC UA Server for Industrial Automation Supporting both Push and Pull Communication One-Click Active Tag Creation reliable gateway bridging edge devices to the SCADA system. MX-AOPC UA Viewer is an OPC UA client that allows users to easily view tag values and server statuses. MX-AOPC UA Logger is another handy client for converting and uploading data logs to the central database. With Moxa’s MX-AOPC UA Suite, users can now instantly receive alarms, real-time updates, and save historical data, allowing for both timely risk prevention and solid maintenance response. › ›First OPC UA server for industrial automation supporting both push and pull communication › ›One-click active tag creation › ›Efficient database uploads › ›Automatic data updates from SD cards following network failures › ›Simple and easy viewing of tag values and UA server status › ›OPC UA: The next generation of interoperability, reliability, and security Introduction
