I want to Fetch few Tags from ABB 800XA and want to see them on Honeywell Network(Experion)
I have 4 ABB DCS controllers and 2 CS/AS/IMS/DOMAIN servers and 11nodes which i am using as operator station.
I want to view few tags from ABB in Honeywell Experion System (On a different network), Connectivity can be ensured by placing router in between.
In this case What kind of licensing is required from ABB point of view?
Can't i use my ABB Dcs as slave so that i can write data to Honeywell (VIa modbus. if yes How?)
IF tried via OPC , my ABB system will be acting as client and Honeywell as OPC server.
What will be the PROG ID in such case. How to find it. DOes it require any licensing as a client in ABB.
Hi, if you on the ABB server open run on windows menu and type advdsopcclient you can find the availible PROGID's for ABB 800xA in that tool.
You can also check manual 3BDS011222, but it can be good if you tell us wich version you have on your ABB system and if you want to fetch data from ABB, ABB going to act as a opc server.
I think you should use a tunnel/bridge software because your systems appaer on different networks and it is easier to handle security with them instead of dcom and they can also act as client/server.
If going to use modbus I'm afraid you have to add a modbuscard on control level.
