LabVIEW OPC UA API
Because of the benefits of OPC UA, National Instruments has chosen to integrate the creation of OPC UA clients and servers communication into two NI LabVIEW add-on modules. For programming Windows-based targets, the LabVIEW Datalogging and Supervisory Control (DSC) Module provides OPC UA capabilities. For NI Real-Time hardware targets, the LabVIEW Real-Time Module enables the OPC UA communication feature set. These capabilities allow both Windows and real-time based LabVIEW applications to communicate through the OPC UA networks to OPC UA-enabled PLCs, data logging historians, and SCADA systems. Use the OPC UA VIs to create a customized OPC UA server application or OPC UA client application. You can use the OPC UA Server VIs and the OPC UA Client VIs to exchange data between OPC UA client and OPC UA server applications.
