The objective of this article is to guide us through data acquisition with EMSE over OPC UA. And we shall be going for full blown OPC UA security (the need for user authentication, Certificates and X.509 Token usage) so that we can experience what is involved to get it running. We shall be touching heavily on EcoStruxture OPC UA Expert as well because the simulation project will be running behind that, in a PLC Simulator.
