DCI communication with AC800M
I just saw your answer about connecting DCI and AC800M together. We are actually working on a DCI migration to AC800M. We installed profibus gateway between both.
Today was our first day of test. We succeed to transfer one binary value and one integer value. The problem is we don't know how to convert the integer value. How would you transfer an analog value from DCI to AC800M? How would you convert it?
Hi Benoit, my solution did not involve profibus so unfortunately my solution will probably not be very valuable to you. I was able to successfully use the property transfer service in 800xA to transfer tags from a DCI System Six DCU to an AC800M. This pt service should not be used for any values that need to be deterministically transferred, but it is perfectly serviceable for any values (bool, int, string, etc.) that are valuable to have in other DCUs.
