While upgrading to OPC UA standard, system integrators, developers or end-users need to test and analyze the effectiveness of OPC UA client applications with their own configurations. Things might become complicated when OPC UA Server is not a free tool to use.
As part of solving this problem, Integration Objects recently released a free to use and distribute OPC UA Server Simulator. It simulates real-time data for a configurable set of tags and data measurements. The simulated data is then stored into a CSV file enabling the simulator to respond to historical data read requests from OPC UA client applications.
This free UA Server is useful to:
- Test OPC UA based systems and data flows
- Simulate real-time and historical data
- Manipulate data simulation using CSV files
It also provides a graphical user interface for easy monitoring and configuration.
