Additional Information

What is OPC UA is a very simple question. The answer when you are discussing a complex technology architecture like OPC UA isn’t as simple. OPC UA which I will refer to as UA throughout this book is the next generation of OPC technology. UA is a more secure, open, reliable mechanism for transferring information between Servers and Clients. It provides more open transports, better security and a more complete information model than OPC which I will refer to as OPC Classic. UA provides a very flexible and adaptable mechanism for moving data between Enterprise type systems and the kinds of controls, monitoring devices and sensors that interact with real world data.

I do not personally know John, but the book has been recommended to me by the folks at the OPC Foundation. I have been using OPC since 1997, and OPC UA since 2010. I am very well versed in industrial automation and computer programming, but this book does not require much technical depth. As I said I have been programming OPC UA applications for a few years, but reading such a structured approach to a quite complex topic gave me a better grip on putting everything in the right context.
Clearly written by someone in the field, this book is way better than any literature out there on OPC UA. A perfect introduction to anyone in the field at any level of involvement in OPC projects.
A great follow up would be a hands-on workbook for us geeks...
As an author around the leading inter-operability standard for industrial data modeling and communications, John Rinaldi has captured the essential elements of OPC UA and presents the material in an easy to read and understand format. Recommended for engineers, manufacturing and process plant operations leadership, and anyone interested in the industrial internet of things.
I have followed John Rinaldi's writings for years as a consultant who has a client in the automation engineering industry. I appreciate John's ability to give detailed information in a format that is easily understandable even for the novice. I recommend his books to professionals in the industry on a regular basis. For anyone who is new to OPC UA or would like to get a concise summary I highly recommend getting this book and encourage you to read the chapter on "10 Things to Know About OPC UA." It is straight forward and to the point. John has great wit and a sense of humor you rarely find when reading information on engineering principles. If you have any kind of personality you will find John's commentary on his personal preferences in life entertaining. For those of you who want details, John goes in depth with specifics that will satisfy any veteran in the engineering field. I give "The Everyman's Guide to OPC UA" my highest recommendation.
