HTML5 Meets OPC-UA: Web Technology In Factory Automation

OPC Unified Architecture, OPC UA for short, is a standardized and secure solution for machine communication in modern factory automation. The cross-platform standard is based on the specifications of the OPC Foundation and is now supported by all well-known manufacturers of machines and systems, as well as by all common control manufacturers, such as Siemens, Bosch Rexroth, Alan Bradley, Beckhoff, etc. Essentially, OPC UA defines the transmission protocol for process data based on a classic client-server architecture. This protocol allows controllers and devices to communicate with each other, even if they are of different designs or use different operating systems.
