OPC UA server
The Format for Industry 4.0
From 2021 onwards series CNC 8x.00 comes with the OPC UA server as an up-to-date alternative for the SMDDE protocol. The new information model provides all important production parameters in a clear manner. Furthermore, it is possible to automate the control by means of the standardized OPC UA interface. Thus, it is easy to e.g. load part programs, send CNC commands to the control as well as start or stop the execution.
