OPC UA provides the concepts for standard communication between Servers and Clients as well as Publishers and Subscribers, but additional concepts are required for OPC UA FX. These concepts include Connection establishment and bidirectional communication. The establishment of Connections further requires concepts such as identity and compatibility verification of Asset and FunctionalEntity, establishing control via ControlGroup selection, setting ConfigurationData, and communication configuration. These concepts are mapped to existing OPC UA communication models and are provided by the OPC UA FX Information Model. This clause conceptually describes the functionality provided in the overview of the Objects defined by the OPC UA FX Information Model.
