OPC see data in server without client
Hi i am trying to verify if have have succeded with connecting the software PLC to the OPC server( all done with abb software compact builder and OPC config). Is there any way to see this without a OPC client or do i have to have one? I have created one variable in a application/program and downloaded it to the softcontroller and also declared it in the access variable and declared the path to the variable to "monitor".
any help would glady be welcome
If you get yellow smiley faces when adding the controller on the DA and AE tabs of the AC 800 OPC Server Panel you should be okay.
Best way is of course to verify some OPC items; I'm not sure, but I assume the advdsopcclient.exe is shipped with Compact HMI as it is with 800xA.
I'm no pro on Compact products, but I assume if you plan to use Process Panel 800 you do not even have to configure the OPC Server for AC 800M.
As far as I know, the PP800 communicates with AC 800M via access variables, not OPC.
Anyway, if you still want to verify successful OPC data via the OPC Server for AC 800M you can use the built-in OPC test client "advdsopcclient" (just type it at the Start->Run... or Command prompt).
