Abb 800XA For Advanted Master 4.0
Hello, If you have 800xA system a good start can be to check the system configuration manuals, one to check is(3BDS011222-xxx) and there are other related manuals also about the subject.
Integration can be done with third-party opc server via opc generic in ABB 800xA(Check System planning manual, 3BSE041389-510).
You can also search for third party OPC in this community you find more infoThen you can browse the opc through AdvDSOPCClient.exe or other 3:party clients. Always use Surrogate OPC of 800xA for 3rd party use(AfwOpcDaSurrogate).
You can find info in the manuals on how to setup dcom etc. for your opc connection.
If you are interested in reading / writing data from Advant Master CPU from external system, there is built in OPC server in 800xA (Surrogate OPC), which you can access by external OPC client. However there are important limitations: data reading from/writing to Advant Master CPU shall be in cycle 1sec, 3sec or 9sec. It is better to avoid too much data traffic in 1 second cycle to prevent PLC overload.
As others have mentioned, it is of outmost importance to heed the guidelines given in the Advant Master Configuration manual.
