This document defines several ObjectTypes that can be used to create an OPC UA FX Information Model. It also specifies a number of Interfaces that can be applied to existing Information Models, allowing existing models to be used as part of an OPC UA FX system. For additional guidance on mapping this model to existing Information Models, see Annex B. For an overview of the main OPC UA FX ObjectTypes, see Figure 17.


Figure 17 – Overview of OPC UA FX Information Model

Since the OPC UA FX Information Model supports small embedded devices as well as powerful controllers, it includes many optional items. Some of these items are mandatory for controller-level Profiles but optional for embedded device Profiles. For a complete list of Profiles related to OPC UA FX, see OPC 10000-84.
