I have a question about Jython sockets. My plc is broadcasting CHAR arrays over UDP (length up to 1024 bytes), and I would like to grab them and insert them as a text blob in a table. This would be bypassing the OPC Server and there obviously wouldn’t be a block group for it, but I don’t think that should make a difference to the GUI since it looks like I should be able to access any table I want. Make sense? I have tested the UDP broadcast, and that works fine and is very reliable.
I’ve looked at various sample Python UDP server functions, and can probably get one of those to work. Will this just be a matter of adding a new script module? Can you give me a quick blurb on how you would approach this?
