Freelance OPC client, It supports redundancy ?
We are doing project where Controller is AC900F.
We are using Softing OPC Easy connect.
We are using Freelance 2016 and Freelance Operation as OPC Client.
We are using third party OPC server redundant (RSLinx).
The redundant OPC servers are installed on different computers,
Now the issue is OPC server is redundant but OPC Client work with this configuration.

No, the Freelance OPC Client does not support OPC-Server redundancy.
There might be a possibility to use the RedundancyMaster feature of KepServerEX, which connects a redundant pair of OPC servers as a single OPC server to an OPC client.
But I'm not aware of a project that did that.
You can download a free demo from the KepServerEX web site and might want to test if it works.
I don't have any experience in running the RedundancyMaster. Surely there is one more software layer for the communication to pass through, but if they did a decent coding it should not be recognizable.
What is the timing of displays for call-up and refresh that you observe?
