This appendix provides informal examples on how the building blocks defined in this specification can be used.
Identification and Finding Machines
In Figure 19, 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, ). As the Robotics specification (see OPC 40010-1, ) already defines some Properties for identification directly, those are only referenced from the Identification functional group.
Figure 19 – Example of Identification
Component Identification and Finding Components of a Machine
In Figure 20, an example is given, showing the Component Identification and Nameplate and Finding all Components of a Machine use cases. The server provides information about a Robotics system (see OPC 40010-1, ). In that system, the components are organized according to the Robotics specification, and in addition according to this specification.
