I have to connect a Siemens S7-300 (with a 343-1 card) to a PI database.
As far as I can read, PI does not have the possibility to act as a OPC DA server (or am I wrong?).
My understanding is that I would need a 3rd party software (e.g Matrikon or softing) to act as the OPC server and then via the OPC client from OSI, I can collect the data and store in in my PI database.
Am I right? Has anyone also made this connection? I guess there is no possibility to have OPC UA?
Thanks in advance for sharing the experience.
