Connects to OPC UA Servers and publishes OPC UA node data values in OPC UA Pub/Sub compatible format

This module allows to connect to existing OPC UA servers and publishes JSON encoded telemetry data from these servers in OPC UA "Pub/Sub" format (using a JSON payload).

This application, apart from including an OPC UA client for connecting to existing OPC UA servers you have on your network, also offers direct methods that can be used to manage what gets published.

OPC Publisher implements a retry logic to establish connections to endpoints which have not responded to a certain number of keep alive requests, for example if the OPC UA server on this endpoint had a power outage.

For each distinct publishing interval to an OPC UA server it creates a separate subscription over which all nodes with this publishing interval are updated.

OPC Publisher supports batching of the data sent to IoTHub, to reduce network load. This batching is sending a packet to IoTHub only if the configured package size is reached.
