The OPC UA POWERLINK Companion Specification was created by a joint working group of the OPC Foundation and the Ethernet POWERLINK Standardization Group (EPSG). It defines an OPC UA Information Model to represent the models from Ethernet POWERLINK. The OPC UA server functionality can represent one or more instances of POWERLINK object dictionaries. Therefore the server could for instance be implemented on a POWERLINK device to represent its local object dictionary, or it could be implemented as a gateway representing the object dictionaries of multiple POWERLINK devices.
