how to share data to 3rd party system ?
HI, I am having 800xA 6.0.3 and PM866 Controller. Here i want to provide data (approximately 90 real and 185 bool signals) to the third party system (schneider). how to make it... Customer didnt accept OPC communication ans not ready for getting any Master Communication interfaces....
Whether from our Control or Plant network directly they can get data by configuring TCP/IP?
For years and years, the lowest common denominator for inter-system peer to peer communication has been Modbus.
So if customer is not ready to buy a communication interface and not ready to accept an OPC bridge, maybe they are not ready to exchange approximately 90 real and 185 boolean signals either?

Its OPC or nothing. The Control or Plant networks will only suppport OPC connections

Ask the customer for their preferred communcation bus. Given that this is a Scneider PLC, I would guess modbus is the most likely choice. You will need to supply a communication interface module.
The AC800 supports Modbus RTU and Modbus TCP fairly easily. From Version 6 onwards the AC800 can be either a master or slave on Modbus RTU.
