So due to the read write issues with Rockwell AOI’s
Ignition & Logix Best Practice Tips for better communications - Ignition - Inductive Automation Forum
My site is having a moment of “what do we do”
The good (and also hard) answer is change the way we do things holistically.
The not as good (but significantly easier) answer is maybe use a different OPC Server to bypass the issue- specifically Linx gateway
There was some interesting conversation here about sing RsLinx gateway - but this is an old post
CLX performance - Ignition - Inductive Automation Forum
There is little info, especially current, regarding whether this will actually work and quite frankly I like ignition OPC
- RsLinx Gateway is OPC-DA (so a bit antiquated now) - I am reluctant to use that on a modern system. But there is mention of it maybe helping with reading AOI’s directly
- Factory Talk Linx is OPC-DA and OPC-UA and is suitable, but there is no info on whether that will make any difference what so ever, it is also probably a bazillion dollars.
- Ignition OPC-UA server is great, but then it looks like we definitely have work to do on all our past and future developments to stablise our communications
Which leads me to my questions
Has anyone had any experience with Factory Talk Linx and if it helps with performance hit of read/writing AOI’s?
Is this just fixing a stuff up with another stuff up? Would the redevelopment of our site UDT’s and AOI’s be the better option and if so… why? [except for Rockwell license fee’s for linx]
As always thank you for the banter and just in case @pturmel I thought I would tag you as ‘da man’
