Vaisala OPC UA Server is built on an industry standard tool preconfigured to bring real-time and historical data from viewLinc into your existing systems, such as data historians, manufacturing execution, reporting, or building automation systems. By installing the stand-alone Vaisala OPC UA Server software, you can leverage your viewLinc data without extensive validation or complex programming.

Before installing Vaisala OPC UA Server software, the following setup steps must be completed in viewLinc:

Table 1. Connecting to Vaisala OPC UA Server
Setup Requirements
