Getting Values from the TCP Driver

Hi All,

I’m having an issue with the TCP driver. Basically, the driver connects, and it’s buffer receives some data. The console shows a ‘message arrived’ entry, and the message string on the console shows the correct data contained in the string.

My question is how do I get the from the message into a tag? My impression was that the data would be read into the ‘OPC UA server->Devices->device name->port->Message’ tag, and that the Field tags would contain data from the message parsed according to the delimiter character set in the device configuration.

Clearly I’m missing something.

I’ve attached some screen captures of both my device configuration, and the console display showing the data arriving. I should note that the TCP buffer is clearly not getting read, because its contents grows to immense proportions if I let it run for long enough.

Thanks for taking a look…


I should add that I just updated to Ignition version 7.5.4 (b1206), and I’m running java 1.6.0_31.

You don’t need single quotes around the delimiters.
