How to get 3rd Party OPC values into CB
Our system is recieving/sending information between an 800xA SV5.1 FP3 system and a 3rd Party OPC.
How do I get these incoming values into my Control builder code? Is there a manual thay describes how to do this?

If you use Generic OPC Network, you can get datas from third party OPC servers, and use these datas on graphic screen.
Also you have a plan to use these datas in Control Builder M, you have to use OPC Bridging Software. For this aim I've used Kepware LinkMaster. More details please visit link below:
Hope it helps you.
Note that *any* OPC bridge is likely to be less reliable than a hard wired connection. For a large amount of data I would agree with Titus and consider something more robust, easier to monitor and with built in calculations and data transforms - but for only 6 signals Property transfer will be just fine.
