This annex describes the design decisions of modelling the information provided by each OPC UA Server, exposing its capabilities, diagnostic information, and other data needed to work with the Server, such as the NamespaceArray.

This annex gives an example of what should be considered when modelling data using the Address Space Model. General considerations for using the Address Space Model can be found in OPC 10000-3.

This annex is for information only, that is, each Servervendor can model its data in the appropriate way that fits its needs.

The following subclauses describe the design decisions made while modelling the Server Object. General DataTypes, VariableTypesand ObjectTypessuch as the EventTypesdescribed in this standard are not taken into account.
