The Advosol OPC UA Server Toolkit bases on the OPC Foundation OPC UA Communication Stack V1.2.334
It uses the same customization plug-in .NET assembly as the Advosol OPC DA, XML DA and Xi server toolkits.
With a single development effort users get data access servers for the OPC specifications:
The Advosol server toolkits consist of two parts:
- The generic server implements the server data model and handles the client interface for one of the OPC specifications.
- The application specific part is a .NET assembly (DLL) that handles the device interface and the server configuration.
The generic server interface is the same for all toolkit versions.
The uaPLUS server toolkit includes several sample servers with Visual Studio solutions.
The servers are kept simple so that they are easy to understand and adapt. Each server is designed to show a particular feature.
Users can select one of the sample servers as the base for their server project. Missing features can be copied form the other sample servers.
UA Test Client
UA Client application that can be used to test the features of the developed servers.
UA Discovery Server
The discovery server provides a list of running UA servers and simplifies the server selection in the client applications.
||Creates and edits the UA communication settings and manages certificates. |

Download the evaluation for the setup file with the code and the utilities.
Without a license file the server works in evaluation mode with a 30 minutes run-time restriction and usage is legally restricted to evaluation purposes.
The Download with the license purchase is a key file that needs to be copied into the folder with the XiPLUS executable. The key file needs to be distributed with the server executables.
The key file must match the version of the uaPLUS.exe file. It unlocks only exe files of the same or older version.
