We are happy to announce that the umati OPC UA sample server was extended by the WEINIG Group to support the newly released OPC 40550–1 UA for Woodworking companion specification.
Based on open62541, an open source implementation of OPC UA, Software Developers from the WEINIG Group introduced two sample machines conforming to the Woodworking Companion Spec into the umati sample server. One machine provides just the essential data whilst the other one provides the full spectrum of the Woodworking Companion Specs possibilities. To enable this, they also extended the open62541 library in order to support the new OPC types required for instantiating this specification.
“Now anyone can test their Woodworking Companion Spec compatible clients with the publicly available OPC UA sample server at opc.tcp://opcua.umati.app:4840”, said Jochen Ganz, Head of New Business & Innovation of the WEINIG Group.
Are you interested in how all this works? The code is open source and freely available under https://github.com/umati/Sample-Server.
