OPC Time Stamp AC800m
It is possible to configure the OPC Server from ac800m (compact) to send to clients the time stamp from the plc and not the machine?
In case of yes, I've never configured time for this plc, wich manual I have to read for both items?

The AC800 OPC server uses the local computer's clock when timestamping OPC DA data(OPC AE alarm&events are sent with time stamps from the controller).
Please read the System 800xA Network Configuration user's guide (3BSE034463-510) - it explains how time can be brought from the controller to the computer or vice versa using NTP, CNCP and MMS (the time protocols available in AC800M).
For controller time configuration ( Synchronisation ) please refer to 3BSE041584-510 Compact 800 Engineering

and for OPC DA+AE configuration
