Microware OS-9

OPC UA connection to EtherCAT Master in Microware OS-9

The OpenSource project OPC UA https://open62541.org funded by Kalycito and an OSADL project group https://www.osadl.org/OPC-UA-TSN.opcua-tsn.0.html, has been ported to Microware OS-9 using the LLVM/CLANG compiler https://clang.llvm.org/ . The CLANG compiler is now available as alpha test version for OS-9 customer and supports the latest C and C++ standards.

An example to show how the OPC UA is working, MicroSys has built a sample program to connect the OS-9 EtherCAT Master to OPC UA requests. The EtherCAT Master is running on OS-9 as a separate process, sharing the Process Image of the connected EtherCAT Slaves via a Data Module (Shared Memory) to the control process.
