The System Commissioner may adjust the Connection configuration, such as addresses of Connection partners, publishing intervals, and QoS mapping tables using a generic OPC UA client or a tool based on standard OPC UA Client Server services, as shown in Figure 7.


Figure 7 – Connection commissioning

The ConnectionManager uses OPC UA Methods exposed by each AutomationComponent to establish the configured Connections when the system goes operational, as shown in Figure 8. See clause 6.2 for more details on Connections and the ConnectionManager.

See OPC 10000-81 for more details.
