OPC AE data transfer to 3rd party client
We have a requirement of transferring 800xA system events to a third party system (Matrikon Alarm Manager).
We are looking for a OPC tunneller to transfer OPC AE data from 800xA system to a 3rd party system (client).
The network connection between IM server and the 3rd party machine has been established. Now, we are planning for a suitable OPC tunneller to transfer OPC AE.
Please let us know if any OPC tunneller or if any other known options to transfer OPC AE.
Please make sure that the solution should be robust, and if any project reference where this solution used, will be very helpful.
Matrikon OPC Tunneler may work fine.
You can also use OPC Server of 800xA (ABB.AfwOpcDaSurrogate) you must configure DCOM security settings properly.
Search more on section "Accessing 800xA via OPC" on manual System 800xA Configuration. Bear in mind that accessing the 800xA OPC Server will generate load in the system, so check OPC performance and capacity on manual 800xA System Guide Technical Data and Configuration.
