TWO CONTROL NETWORKS
I am using AC800M-PM861 controller, and using Compact HMI with it.
SCADA is being operated through ABB OPC Server only.
Another OPC server is also running on same PC, which is producing an IP based Webpage.
I want to have that data in my ABB SCADA.
I have planned to create another Control Network. Kindly support that what will be the Consequences if I created Two Control Networks,and then will do assigning in SCADA.
There is no limit on number of Control Network objects.
It is also possible to configure multiple connectivities in the same server node.
Hence, I foresee no problems in creating a second Control Network and use the existing server as connectivity server.
Refer to the "Generic OPC Server upload" chapter in the users guides. You may also use PLC Connect to upload the additional OPC server.
