Connecting Ignition with Arburg PLC-s


Does anyone have experience connecting Igntion and Arbrug PLCs.

What requirements should be met before and which Ignition device driver to choose by connecting it to another OPC Server.

I've not encountered these. Links?

I don't know these PLCs neither, but if these PLCs talk Modbus-TCP it shouldn't be a problem, right?

We have Arburg molding machines - is that what you are asking about?
Our Arburg's are controlled with Fanuc controllers.
Here is some info you can read about Fanuc with Ignition:
Driver for FANUC CNC (FOCAS)? - Ignition - Inductive Automation Forum
Fanuc has an add-on (very expensive) that makes them look like an Allen-Bradly to an OPC server or what we chose to do is to connect our Fanuc controllers to an Allen-Bradley Logix PLC (8 connected on slot 0 and 8 connected on slot 2).

Thank you.

If you don't have a Logix PLC handy, or you want faster access, you might consider scanner mode on my EtherNet/IP Class1 communications module.

Also note the Beta announcement for v2:
