OPC UA Theory and Practice
ON-SITE WORKSHOPS FOR COMPANIES
OPC Unified Architecture
OPC Unified Architecture (UA) is a platform independent standard through which various kinds of systems and devices can communicate by sending Messages between Clients and Servers over various types of networks.
OPC Unified Architecture (UA) is the next generation OPC standard that provides a cohesive, secure and reliable cross platform framework to access real time, historical and events data.
OPC UA defines a standard set of services that Servers may provide, and specifies to Clients what services set they should support.
OPC UA can be mapped onto a variety of communication protocols and data can be encoded in various ways to trade off portability and efficiency.
- Learn how OPC UA works behind the scenes
- Understand OPC UA Security model and Information Modeling
- Understand the benefits of OPC UA and how OPC components can be used to build efficient and flexible systems
- Best practices at the implemantation of OPC UA applications
Place: Customer facilities
27-28 November - OPC UA Theory and Practice - Barcelona
11-12 December - OPC UA Theory and Practice - Dublin
Professional Development Hours: 16 (8 hr/day)
This workshop will be principally aimed at Control and Application Engineers, Integrators, Managers, Operation Managers, Software Developers, Plant Managers, Product Managers, Technologists, Technicians and managers responsible for the commissioning and day-to-day operation of automation and process control systems. It will also contain relevant information to managers and administrators responsible for the design of process control architectures, selection of technologies and software and the purchase of both hardware and software for these systems.
Upon completing training, all participants will be able to understand how OPC UA works
Thorough knowledge about OPC Technology obtained from daily use. Having attended previous OPC training.
The workshop will be made up of lectures and PowerPoint presentations. Virtual images will be provided for the hands-on exercises. Real Hardware will be used along the training.
Students are welcome to discuss current connectivity issues they are faced with and learn from one another.

Requirements for course completion:
There is no specific requirements, ideal participant’s profile for our courses: Technical staff that participates in the design of architectures, Installation, configuration, maintenance and commissioning of automation projects for electrical substations and telecontrol systems.
Specifically for the OPC UA * course: * theory and practice and the OPC course UA: theory, practice and application development, it is convenient to have previous experience about OPC technology acquired through daily use.
In regards of aspects that stand out
- In all workshops different gifts are provided to participants
- In Spain, Tripartite Foundation recognizes our workshops
OPC Technology and Advanced Architecture Development
OPC UA: Theory and Practice are certified by Matrikon
- In all our workshops we provide a completion certificate
- All workshops include practices with real hardware and simulation of issues that might occur in industrial plants today
