Do we need more Ignition drivers?
Messing with the Omron DCOM OPC-server (and OPC-DCOM in general) is a true pain in the ass
Unstable, low performance, and poor UI are some of the keywords.
My biggest wish for Ignition would be an driver for Omron PLCs. These PLCs are vastly popular in Europe, we alone have around 50 CPUs inhouse.
I think an Omron driver could possibly open up a whole new market in Europe.
Newer Omron PLCs support Ethernet/IP and FINS-TCP. Older PLCs only support FINS-TCP.
These protocols are very well documented by Omron, and a lot of people have written small PC-programs using FINS (have a look at MrPLC.com).
Is this a driver Inductive Automation would consider to implement? (please )
