We have a customer who originally paid for us to setup a stand alone data collection system for a small machine (using Ignition Bridge and MSSQL). We are just starting that and now their company is trying to implement some type of PackML system.
We prefer to not have their system talk to the PLC, but wondered if there is some way to make Ignition which is already reading the tags, to be able to publish the values in some way for PackML to read it. I don’t know much about the PackML system yet, but I assume it has some type of OPC to connect to PLC’s, etc.
Our other thought is to see if it can read our SQL tables.
