First Version

 

 

 

OPC UA is a machine to machine communication technology to transmit characteristics of products (e.g. manufacturer name, device type or components) and process data (e.g. temperatures, pressures or feed rates). To enable vendor unspecific interoperability the description of product characteristics and process data has to be standardized utilizing technical specifications, the OPC UA companion specifications.

This specification was created by a joint working group of the OPC Foundation and VDMA Mining, AMT Institute of RWTH Aachen University and IREDES.

 

1         Scope

This document provides a comprehensive overview of the information model structure of mineral processing equipment defined in the OPC UA Companion Specification Mining. As mentioned in OPC 40560, this machine and system category-level document contains parent types and common features of machines, equipment, systems and services that are classified as mineral processing equipment or systems.

3         Terms, definitions and conventions

3.1           Overview

It is assumed that basic concepts of OPC UA information modelling from OPC 10000-1, OPC 10000-100, and OPC 40001‑1 are understood in this document. This document will use these concepts to describe the OPC 40564-1 Information Model. For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in the documents referenced in the OPC Core documents, OPC 10000-1, OPC 10000-100, OPC 40001-1 and OPC 40560 apply.

Note that OPC UA terms and terms defined in this specification are italicized in the specification.

3.2           Conventions used in this document

The conventions and definitions described in the OPC Core documents, OPC 10000-1, OPC 10000-100, OPC 40001-1 and OPC 40560 apply.


 

4         General information to 40564-1: Mineral Processing General

4.1           Introduction to the OPC UA Companion Specification Mining

For general information on the OPC UA Companion Specification Mining and OPC UA in general, please refer to OPC 40560.

As explained in OPC 40560, the machine and system category-level documents serve as an abstraction layer for the types of machinery with similar functionalities.

4.2         Introduction to the Mineral Processing General

The Mineral Processing Equipment General document, OPC 40564-1, serves as an abstraction layer to all machines and systems that are classified as mineral processing equipment or systems. Therefore, it contains parent types and common features that are shared by two or more mineral processing equipment or systems. Documents detailing the mineral processing equipment or systems, that are part of the OPC 40564 multi-part documents, are given in Table 1.

5         Namespaces

5.1           Namespace Metadata

Table 2 defines the namespace metadata for this document. The Object is used to provide version information for the namespace and an indication about static Nodes. Static Nodes are identical for all Attributes in all Servers, including the Value Attribute. See OPC 10000-5 for more details.

The information is provided as Object of type NamespaceMetadataType. This Object is a component of the Namespaces Object that is part of the Server Object. The NamespaceMetadataType ObjectType and its Properties are defined in OPC 10000-5.

The version information is also provided as part of the ModelTableEntry in the UANodeSet XML file. The UANodeSet XML schema is defined in OPC 10000-6.

Note: The IsNamespaceSubset Property is set to False as the UaNodeSet XML file contains the complete Namespace. Servers only exposing a subset of the Namespace need to change the value to True.

 

5.2         Handling of OPC UA Namespaces

Namespaces are used by OPC UA to create unique identifiers across different naming authorities. The Attributes NodeId and BrowseName are identifiers. A Node in the UA AddressSpace is unambiguously identified using a NodeId. Unlike NodeIds, the BrowseName cannot be used to unambiguously identify a Node. Different Nodes may have the same BrowseName. They are used to build a browse path between two Nodes or to define a standard Property.

Servers may often choose to use the same namespace for the NodeId and the BrowseName. However, if they want to provide a standard Property, its BrowseName shall have the namespace of the standards body although the namespace of the NodeId reflects something else, for example the EngineeringUnits Property. All NodeIds of Nodes not defined in this document shall not use the standard namespaces.

Table 3 provides a list of mandatory and optional namespaces used in an OPC 40564-1 OPC UA Server.

Mandatory

Vendor specific types

A Server may provide vendor-specific types like types derived from ObjectTypes defined in this document in a vendor-specific namespace.

Optional

A Server provides vendor-specific instances of the standard types or vendor-specific instances of vendor-specific types in a vendor-specific namespace.

It is recommended to separate vendor specific types and vendor specific instances into two or more namespaces.

Mandatory

 

Table 4 provides a list of namespaces and their indices used for BrowseNames in this document. The default namespace of this document is not listed since all BrowseNames without prefix use this default namespace.

(normative)

OPC 40563-1 Namespace and mappings

This appendix defines the numeric identifiers for all of the numeric NodeIds defined in this document. The identifiers are specified in a CSV file with the following syntax:

<SymbolName>, <Identifier>, <NodeClass>

Where the SymbolName is either the BrowseName of a Type Node or the BrowsePath for an Instance Node that appears in the specification and the Identifier is the numeric value for the NodeId.

The BrowsePath for an Instance Node is constructed by appending the BrowseName of the instance Node to the BrowseName for the containing instance or type. An underscore character is used to separate each BrowseName in the path. Let’s take for example, the MiningEquipmentType ObjectType Node which has the add-in Identification object. The Name for the Identification InstanceDeclaration within the MiningEquipmentType declaration is:  MiningEquipmentType_Identification.

The NamespaceUri for all NodeIds defined here is:

       http://opcfoundation.org/UA/Mining/MineralProcessing/General/ 

The CSV released with this version of the specification can be found here:

       http://opcfoundation.org/UA/schemas/Mining/MineralProcessing/General/1.0.0/NodeIds.csv

NOTE    The latest CSV that is compatible with this version of the specification can be found here:

       http://opcfoundation.org/UA/schemas/Mining/MineralProcessing/General/NodeIds.csv

A computer processible version of the complete Information Model defined in this document is also provided. It follows the XML Information Model schema syntax defined in OPC 10000-6.

The Information Model Schema for this version of the specification (including any revisions, amendments or errata) can be found here:

      http://opcfoundation.org/UA/schemas/Mining/MineralProcessing/General/1.0.0/opc.ua.mining.mineralprocessing.general.NodeSet2.xml
