I want to establish a PI OPC DA Interface between PI Collective and OPC Server. The question is whether The interface can communicate with the OPC server through FGS gateway or not ?
Thanks in advance.
Hi every one..!
FSGateway is like to OPC Server .It is used to on SCADA Intouch.
Please check the picture below,
Could you give us a little more explanation on the FGS gateway?
Is it a one-directional gateway? a type of data diodes?
PI Interface for OPC DA is a type of OPC Client. We did various testing against many different types of OPC Servers but the main take away is that OPC is a standard and we try to follow them.
Thus it would be good to know if the FGS gateway allows OPC communication. If it supports it, then our interface will support it as well.
The FSG provides a communication management and translation between the server system and the client system. and yes it supports OPC communication.
I have used the pi opc client tool to test and connection with opc server, and it worked.
Is that an indication that the PI OPC DA interface will be able to get data coorectly through groups?
Thank you for the reference, I established the interface and it worked well with the FSGateway.
Thank you all.
I am currently running into issues implementing an OPC DA interface with this FSGateway OPC Server.
When retreiving available OPC servers in the PI ICU it only one entry is being listed "FSGateway" however when selecting this entry and starting the interface the Interface program, OPCInt, reports this OPC server is invalid and not registered in the registry. Unfortanely our client would not grant access to the remote system at which this OPC server is running.
The client only provides us with a screenshot and OPC url which directs us to an OPC PRGID "OrchestrA.FSGateway.2" which when used in a Softing DEMO Client however this didn't work on the PI OPC Client.
Could you provide me with any addtional settings necesarry to run this OPC Interface?
