Annex B (informative) Examples ToC Previous

Overview This appendix provides informal examples on how the building blocks defined in this specification can be used.

Identification and Finding Machines In Figure 9, an example is given, showing the identification and Nameplate and Finding all Machines in Server use cases. The server provides information about a Robotics system as well as a CNC machine defined by Machine Tools (see OPC 40501, [3]). As the Robotics specification (see OPC 40010-1, [4]) already defines some Properties for identification directly, those are only referenced from the Identification functional group.
