System 800xA with PSGuard
Hello to everyone.
My name is Christian Acuña, I am from Chile and I am currently doing my Bachelor's Thesis on Synchrophasors.
I am working with PDC600 and the system 800xA for OPC data reciever.
I have installed the system in both machines. If I send OPC data in my computer with PDC600, I can see it with SOfting OPC Client the OPC data exchange but I dont have tags.
In the other machine (800xA), with the softing OPC client, I can see the OPC reciever from my PDC but I cant see it in the 800xA system with OPC server in control structures
I attach a picture.
Thank you for your help

Explain where OPC server is running. I see two nodes (PSG-x and PDC-x) where OPC server seem to run in one and 800xA connectivity in the other...
The 800xA OPC DA Connector can only connect a locally running OPC server.
If OPC server and 800xA does not share machine, DCOM or a tunneller must be used. Local connection (no DCOM/tunnel) is much preferred.
Also, server must be able to accept client (800xA) to run as a service i.e. with no GUI.
System 800xA can run in many different configurations, combined aspect and connectivity server (1 node) or with dedicated servers for OPC connectivity (>1 node). You choose.
OPC DA Connector will only list locally running OPC servers unless DCOM is enabled (which you should try to avoid for stability and security issues)
One of the images show a connector listing the PDC600 server - I think you are on the right way...
