In 800xA I want to load OPC Control Connection properties using a PCA Definition file
I am building 3rd party device object types which receive info through a Modbus TCP/IP connection. In the object type I have an aspect called OPC Control Connection.
In this aspect I have to define (enter) the properties which I shall receive from the 3rd party device in the 800xA system.
I need to enter more than 100 properties and would like to know how I can do that automatically by using a PCA Definition File of by using Bulk Data Manager.
I have all the OPC Control Connection properties available in an Excel sheet (which I received from the vendor of the 3rd party device).
If I should use a PCA Definition File, then I would like to know how this can be edited and what the format must be.
There exist no official document I can provide, but I have inserted some samples I found lying in some far corner on my harddrive. I can not tell if they work or not.
If this does not suffice, please ask your regional ABB support center to open up a support case and refer to this AKS thread.
