Can 800xA Ver 5.1 Rev. A, 32 bits read OPC tags from Baily control system?
I need to read OPC tags from Baily controller into 800xA system.
Baily and 800xA are in the same plant and control system.

You could make use of the Generic OPC Server Network to read tags from a 3rd party OPC server. If the Baily OPC server and 800xa are on the same network, it should be possible to read the tags provided the necessary DCOM settings have been made.
You may refer to the Configuration manual in the 800xa documentation regarding DCOM settings
Yes of course you can do. 800xA system version doesnt matter. As longs as you client supports OPC complaint, You can read data using OPC generic Network
If your client and 800xA are different domain, you need to use DCOM and same username and passowrds on both the nodes.
If it is same network you can define only DCOM will work..
