About Me

Hi! My name is Stefan Profanter

I’m a researcher and computer scientist. Doing research and helping others is my passion. Therefore I created this personal blog where I publish various blog posts about OPC UA and related topics.

Hopefully some of the posts help you to deep-dive into OPC UA and save you some time. Feel free to give me feedback and suggestions for topics through the contact page.

I’m also one of the core developers of the free and open source OPC UA stack open62541 and am gaining a lot of deep insights into OPC UA during my contributions to this project.

In my research work I’m focusing on the usage of OPC UA for industrial robots, especially Plug-and-Play applicability.
