Overview OPC UA Specifications

General information:

EUROMAP started its work for developing OPC UA models for plastics and rubber machines as pure EUROMAP recommendation. In this context EUROMAP 83, 77 and 82.1 are already released. In the meantime, EUROMAP and OPC Foundation have established a joint working group. As consequence, all future publication will be published as both EUROMAP recommendations and OPC Companion Specifications. The latter are the neutral base versions for international adoptions.

Basis for all OPC UA specification for plastics and rubber machinery is EUROMAP 83. This defines general types which are used in the specific models.
