if you are going with PLC connect then follow this
1.You have to go for the ABB PLC Connect which you can install separately or you combine with default AC800M connect package which is having inbuilt drivers(Modbus TCP/IP, Modbus RTU,COMLI,Sattbus TCP Master) then you can get all data directly then you can perform the graphics building for those values.
You have to create separate Generic control network. If want to use in control builder then you have to go for generic properties aspect
Please refer the attached doc.
2. if you are doing generic OPC then you have to use the property trasnfer definition to use the variable in CBM.
