    The newest release of DeltaV has the capabilities of enabling an OPC UA server that could be used to transmit realtime date from DeltaV to the PI database. Right now, the interface between the two systems uses OPC DA. With DeltaV's plan to migrate to only using OPC UA, Is there a roadmap to update the smart connector such that it uses OPC UA for realtime data transmission? This could allow the OPC UA connector to be placed on the PI data server directly since it is much easier to setup OPC UA connections across physically separate machines (as opposed to OPC DA).
