OPC Server for Linux

Although It is heard every where that Linux OPC Servers are at development, still none seems to be available. Am I saying nonsenses or this is so?

The Ignition OPC-UA setup runs quite nicely on Linux.

Not necessarily complete, but openopc.sourceforge.net/ provides a nice toolkit for integrating OPC with python.

That uses OPC-DA/COM, which definitely won’t work on linux.

The site claims it has been tested on Linux. Curious for a DCOM based technology.


No problem, though. The Ignition OPC-UA server is much more mature, runs well on most platforms (Windows, Linux, OSX), and is free.

They don’t seem to mention it as a server though. Looks like it would act as an OPC tunnel to connect a non-windows client to a windows server.
