After several days of testing the Modbus TCP Driver against GE PLC’s (9030 and RX3i), I think it would be very beneficial to have much more controls over the item name in the Modbus TCP driver(server).
Currently, the address tool in the driver appears to be limited to only 5 characters(Prefix) and a number. Granted the address tool allows for rapid creation of a series of OPC items with an indexing numerical suffix and indexing physical address. It does allow for rapid creation of tags but is very limiting in naming conventions that can be used.
We would like to be able to input item names (say something like 32 characters) or import a CSV file defining item names and thier corresponding address in the PLC (with underscores permitted).
Would something like this be easy to to incorporate?
