AbstractThe advancement of communication network technologies in recent years has enabled the emergence of a large number of protocols and equipment that require the use of intermediary hardware to integrate the nodes of a plant or automation system. The need to adapt networks to the modern scenario, perform the interoperability of these networks, and make them communicate in a transparent way is a great challenge. With the establishment of the Industrial Internet and Internet of Things, it is possible to implement solutions to solve this problem. In this context, this work was to develop an OPC Gateway for automation, capable of reading and writing values from a plant or automation systems and making them available for user access through client software. The hardware operation will be described based on the message exchange tests carried out at the end of the research, demonstrating its efficiency and usefulness.
