This part of OPC 10000 is part of the overall OPC Unified Architecture (OPC UA) standard series and defines the information model associated with Data Access (DA). It particularly includes additional VariableTypes and complementary descriptions of the NodeClasses and Attributes needed for Data Access, additional Properties, and other information and behaviour.

The complete address space model, including all NodeClasses and Attributes is specified in OPC 10000-3. The services to detect and access data are specified in OPC 10000-4.

Annex A specifies the recommended way how the information received from OPC COM Data Access (DA) Servers shall be mapped to the model in this document.
