1. Enable the Simulation mode for controller 2. Download the Sample Application to Soft Controller 3. Check the particular Controller IP shows Smile icon in OPC Configuration Window 4. OPC DA Service should be UP and running in 800xA
1. First Open Soft Controller. Start the soft controller. Once it is started, go to File ---> View Log file, Check for network address for example- 172.16.80.151:2. Copy this. 2. Open OPC server for AC800M. On Data Access tab, paste the IP exactly in the same way -172.16.80.151:2. DO same at Alarm tab. 3. Go to control builder. Go to ethernet tab (1st one) of Controller in hardware. Go to setting, put IP address- 172.16.80.151. Save it. 4. Under Applications, go to "Controllers", right click on your controller---> properties ---> System Identity --> Put IP Address 172.16.80.151:2 5. Again right click on your controller---> properties ---> click Simulate hardware.
After thus you will see all your actual hardware would have come with letter "s" in red color in front of it. This means, virtually your hardware is in simulation mode & it will acts as realt hardware connections.
Also please make sure Controller name is provided. You can download the application now.
After this you have to check for OPC services in service structure & the service is mapped in control structure. Find the attached screen shots for reference.
