We have an existing machine controller based on .NET. I would like to exchange data with the .NET application and Ignition for some status HMIs, alarm history and eventually bringing OEE to the system.
I am struggling with the best way to expose the information and connect with Ignition.
I looked at a TCP/UDP driver, but the listen only aspect won’t allow me to send data back to my controller.
My ideal would be a way of tying in through WCF, but i don’t see any support for that.
Any suggestions or directions would be greatly appreciated.
