Comunicazione OPC Unified Architecture con SIMATIC S7-1500 (SIE-OPCUA)

  • The interconnection of a plant between systems of different manufacturers implies the definition of an open communication standard. The OPC UA standard is the next generation protocol for communication machine-to-machine which incorporates and improves all previous OPC standards for industrial automation. The SIMATIC S7-1200 and S7-1500 CPUs incorporate this protocol at the firmware level, allowing for simple and quick implementation. The course will allow you to acquire the basic notions of the OPC UA protocol. You will be given instructions for implementation on an S7-1500 CPU aimed at communicating with various industrial systems (PLC, HMI and third-party clients).


  • After attending the course, you can:
    • Understand the benefits of OPC UA in the industrial environment
    • Configure OPC UA communication on a SIMATIC S7-1500 automation system
    • Exchange information with an OPC UA Client
