FF OPC Servr
I am looking for a solution to communicate Foundation Fieldbus variables between two difference 800xA System.
The customer prefer use an OPC link. Both system have FF device integration (Hardware and Software).
Is there a OPC application that can help me with it?
Thanks in advance.

Are both 800xA systems on the same domain ?
If yes - On System 1 create a third party OPC network and connect it to the FF OPC Server on 800xA System 2 ( and vice versa ). This way both 800xA systems can read data from the other system.
If No - You will also need to add a tunneller between the two systems. Kepware or Cogent can offer reasonable off-the-shelf solutions. The Third Party OPC network connects to each end of the tunnels to the other 800xA system rather than direct to the FF server.
