OPC UA Publish-Subscribe
OPC UA Publish-Subscribe (Pub/Sub) is the communication mechanism for data exchange between servers that act as a Publisher and a Subscriber.
A Publisher defines Data Sets that contain variables and then publishes the data changes. The data is transferred in a binary format and is published into a network, where Subscribers can listen to it.
The number of Subscribers receiving data from the Publisher does not influence the Publisher. This makes Pub/Sub suitable for applications where location independence and scalability are required.
OPC UA File transfer
File transfer allows you to transfer files to a running target system without having to turn off the hardware and open additional ports. DXF files, CAM tables and other files can be transferred using this function.
