The product feature OPC Route.NET provides easy data transfer from OPC Server to OPC Server even over the Internet.
Use the Target tab under Configure-Tags to define the OPC Server Item destination. The source comes from the Value of a Tag and can be different than an OPC Item.
When using OPC Systems.NET tags you can have the following data sources as the Value.
• OPC Servers
• OPC Clients
• Microsoft Excel (with OPC Excel.NET)
• Databases (with OPC Recipe.NET)
• .NET applications (with OPC Windows HMI.NET)
View the following video for a quick presentation on setting up automatic writing to OPC Servers.
** Note: If you wish to write to an OPC Item from an HMI, Recipe, confirmation, or any other client feature that supports a write you do not need the OPCRoute.NET feature. When a Tag is written to and the data source is an OPC Item the write will automatically occur to the OPC Server.
