OPC AE .NET Client SDK for C# and VB.NET

OPC AE (Alarms&Events) .NET Client SDK for C# and VB.NET

You can develop OPC Alarms & Evens (AE) clients in .NET (C# or VB.NET) without having to think about the OPC DCOM interface. The OPCAE.NET wrapper assembly provides classes and methods that take advantage of the .NET features and make OPC AE server access real simple and quick.
  • There is a .NET method for each OPC AE specified function. The data is converted to/from .NET data types. The .Net wrapper functions are highly optimized and work in 32-bit and 64-bit operation.
  • The EventView control is included as an upper layer to minimize coding requirements.
  • The Visual Studio OPCAE.NET New Prooject template creates a client application that connects to an OPC AE server and displays events.
  • A test client and several sample clients are supplied in C# and VB source code.
  • A simulaton server is included as a test environment
  • OPCAE.NET can be used for stand-alone OPC AE clients or combined with OPCDA.NET and/or OPCHDA.NET for OPC AE / DA / HDA client applications.

Accessing UA Servers
OPCAE.NET with the OPCAE.NET-UA option enables clients to access OPC UA servers and Classic OPC A&E servers through the same API. The server ID (ProgID or URL) determines the type of serve accessed.
No external converters are required and DCOM is completely eliminated.
 
EventView Control
The EventView control handles a wide range of OPC Alarms&Events viewing requirements. OPC AE handling can be added in a snap to any Windows form application. Just pull the control from the Visual Studio toolbox to the form and customize the control by setting properties and subscribe to the OPC AE server with a single method call.
 
 
The included AE Test Client application can be used as a diagnostic tool to see what OPC AE servers are available and if they can be accessed and provide events. The test client can also be used as a development helper tool. The server can be browsed to get the event sources supported by the server. All OPC AE 1.1 functions can be called interactively to check if the server acts as expected. This may help determine if an unexpected behavior has to searched in the client being developed or somewhere else.
The test client is based on OPCAE.NET and the user application should behave identically.

To make the application test environment complete there is a Simulation Server included in the OPCAE.NET package. This server is based on the  Advosol DANSrvAE Server Toolkit and is tested for OPC DA/AE compliance.
