OPC A&E data structure
I'm looking for the data structure of the OPC A&E interface for 800xA 5.1
We need to integrate an 800xA system into an existing Alarm and event management package. The Alarm and events package will recieve the data via OPC A&E and apply a set of parsing rules in order to format the data accordingly to the existing database.
We need to know the different kinds and format of messages generated by 800xA in order to determine the required parsing rules.
I have been able to find this information for other systems (Emerson and Siemens) but not for xA.
I'm not sure how such data structure should looks for you, but you can find brief description of alarm .NET classes in the Adv.AE namespace in Process Portal A SDK.
Process Portal A SDK supplied with 800xA System but not installing by default. Check Engineering & Development\Aspect Studio path in system installation disc.
