Me and colleague are in the process of setting up a new system and found that the Allen Bradley CompactLogix 5380 has the capability of doing Tag Based Alarms. According to Allen Bradley documentation these particular tags can’t be scanned automatically with the OPC server, however they can be find by using the following:
We have been trying to set this up in Ignition 8.1 and when following the diagram Allen Bradley puts out to find the points Ignition gives us Error_Configuration.
Has anyone had success with pulling these tags from the CompactLogix 5380 and if so would you mind sharing some examples as to how you were able to pull them? TIA
