ABB Freelance 2016 OPC connection with Rockwell Factory Talk Batch
if the Rockwell software runs on Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard Edition will the OPC connection work with Freelance 2016 or do we need Windows Server 2008 2008 r2 sp1?
Freelance 2016 SP1 was tested and can be used with Windows Server 2012 R2. As far as I remember version 2016 was not tested with Windows Server 2012 R2.
Remember You don't need to install both OPC client and server on the same PC. Also Freelance OPC server can work on Windows 7 (Pro or enterprice), so maybe You don't need any server at all.
Hope this helps,
