Tutorial 1: Create an OPC-UA Server with IoT Designer

Print

Start your first IoT-Project

Download and install the HumanOS® IoT Designer.

Design

Start the HumanOS® IoT Designer.


Create a new HumanOS® Project

Give your project a name and select the license and platform. Default is trial platform.


Select your preferred service protocol. In our case OPC-UA Server.


Select "Devices" and a new device to your project.


Select the device type / protocol, e.g. FANUC CNC


Then select a predefined template for your device.


Give your device a name (filename).
Input the address of the FANUC control:


The device structure is shown as tree view. Double click on the first node to change device address.


Run the OPC-UA Server

Deploy and test the project now.


Deploys the project and starts the HumanOS® IoT Platform.


Wait, until the message « Server is running ok» appears.


Your're done!

Hint: When using a trial platform, you get the OPC-UA trial notification. Just click it away.

Trial platforms run only one hour and then automatically terminate. Ask for an extended trial version here...


Test the Connection

Use a regular OPC-UA client. We recommend using the UA-Expert.

Start the UA-Expert and add a new Connection. By default, the HumanOS Server endpoint is: opc.tcp://localhost:48030

Set Security Policy to “None”.
Hint: HumanOS® OPC-UA Server supports different security policies. A valid server certificate is needed and must be installed.


Connect to the server and then Drag&Drop the data access points to the middle of the UA-Expert window.
