Identifying information in OPC XML
Fundamentals > Identifying information in OPC XML

QuickOPC.NET supports the OPC XML-DA specification transparently, with the same objects that are used for COM-based OPC Data Access. The two specifications are quite similar, and for most part, developers will not see much difference. Accesses to OPC-DA and OPC XML-DA can be freely mixed, even in the same method call. This transparency has been achieved by several generalizations in the object model and API.

OPC XML-DA specification identifies certain entities differently. The specifics of those are explained further below.

QuickOPC supports OPC XML-DA also on Linux and macOS.
