Below follows info how to set OPC interface on Compact HMI 800 side:
general info regarding Compact HMI 800 you can find here:
Description you can find in this document (document is available from link above):
Description regarding setting OPC server you can find in teh section Installation and Configuration of OPC Servers for PLCs.
Hello, you can use RSLinx OPC server to get the data in Compact HMI. In RSLinx please reffer the OPC Topic configuration part to configure your compact logix controller. There are other software also available other than RSLinx(Ingear OPC server, Matrikon OPC Server).
Hope this will help.
Thanks & Regards
From there, OPC server connection (e.g. kepware) to the Compact HMI OPC client should be easy following the manuals our collegues just pointed at you.
