OMRON OPC-CX Server/Client Configuration,
I have Third Party OMRON PLC in site and need to communicate through OMRON OPC.
As a initial step , I have Installed the OMRON OPC in my AS Machine as a Server and configured the Network connections same class of OMRON PLC. And managed to ping them and got the reply from the devices.
And I dont have any config manual to proceed further and get the OPC data from Third party PLC's to xA... So anybody worked before with OMRON OPC please share the Config manuals or steps to configure them.
Thanks in Advance!...
In an 800xA system, I would recommend that you do not install a third party OPC server in your Aspect Server. It is much safer to use a separate Connectivity Server. ( By "safer" I mean that you can easily re-boot the OPC conections during commisioning, testing and maintenance without affecting the rest of the xA system )
Anyway, the manual you are looking for is "PLC Connect" http://tinyurl.com/q2d3wqx
The procedures are the same for any third party PLC - it doesnt matter what manufacturer.
If this is a small PLC and you dont want to use PLC connect, then unfortunately it seems the procedures may have been removed in the latest manuals. Look in an older version of the Post Installation manual.
