🗒️ Introduction

OPC UA is becoming one of the most standardized way of communication among various software and hardware. Not only in the IIoT devices but most of the upcoming PLCs are coming up with build in OPC UA Server for example PLCNext and Siemens PLC. It is very important to understand how OPC UA communication works.

In this course, you will learn how to access OPCUA server in the hardware devices like PLC and IIoT using OPCUA clients.
