I will develop client program for PLC and need help
I am going to develop a C# or Delphi client program for ABB PLC to control all the system through OPC Server. There will be 2 pc.
Could you please give me some advice what do I need for that system?
Should I install OPC Server on client computer too? Which OPC library should I use? Where can I learn the configuration for client pc and the controller?
Appriciate for all the answers.

-Demands for the system are not that high.
-I would suggest using C# and you should install the OPC server on the client computer too.
-We use the C# viscom opc code samples library, you should be able to find it on google.
-To see what the OPC structure looks like, we use Visual OPC Tracer, which shows how the applications and programs in your ABB controller are available via OPC.
-The configuration depends on the used ABB PLC/DCS and version
Hope this helps.
