OPC dslink no connection on EFM 1.5

Hi there,

 

did one of you ever get the OPC link up and running?
Currently my small demo consists of a EFM 1.5 installed locally on Windows and a simulated OPC-UA server running on a separate Windows machine.


The documentation on github describes the following:

For the "add connection" action:

name: any name
host: the network name of the PC which is running the OPC server(s)
domain: in most cases, this should be localhost
user: name of the windows account (on the host PC) which is running the server(s)
password: password of this windows account

Note that if you only need your connection for connecting to XML-DA servers, you only need the "name" parameter. XML-DA servers are not tied to a specific PC, so they may be accessed from any connection

For the "add server" action:

 

name: any name
server prog id: this should be something like "Kepware.KEPServerEX.V5" or "Matrikon.OPC.Simulation.1", however, the dslink will usually automatically discover the OPC servers running on the host PC and give you a drop-down list of server ids to choose from.

Unfortunately with the syntax so far no successful connection came off

 

Thanks in advance for your help

Re: OPC dslink no connection on EFM 1.5

Hello Markus,

 

The open source OPC link to which you refer is for connecting to OPC-DA servers only, not OPC-UA.  To connect to an OPC-UA server, you will need an OPC-UA link. Cisco has created an OPC-UA link that is currently in beta.  Please contact your Cisco account rep to arrange for download of that link.

 

Regards,

Marc
