OPC DX enables communication between OPC DA servers, for instance. In the traditional DA architecture, OPC clients ask servers for services (quite obvious :-) ). In the DX architecure, it is possible to establish a connection between two OPC servers. The DX architecure enables communication between different types of networks (like Foundation Fieldbus and Profibus).
