    Matrikon OPC UA Explorer v1.4

    [New] Flexible OPC UA Item Export

    Based on user feedback, Matrikon OPC UA Explorer v1.4  now lets you export OPC UA items into a CSV file using two methods:

    • Bulk Export: generates a comprehensive list of all the nodes found at and below the selected level in the address space of a connected OC UA server.

    • Data View Export: lets you export only the items you added to a particular OPC UA Explorer Data View tab.  Note: a single Data View tab can contain items from multiple OPC UA servers.

    Matrikon OPC UA Explorer’s OPC UA node export-to-CSV-file functionality makes short work of preparing JSON (and other) configuration files used in cloud solution deployments (like Microsoft Azure and AWS IoT SiteWise).

    Example: Sample contents of an exported OPC UA node CSV file brought into a spreadsheet for editing

    What’s a Matirkon OPC UA Explorer Data View?
