A customer is trying to read floats from a Mitsubishi Q series via Kepware 6.4’s Mitsubishi Ethernet driver. The data is in a ‘D’ register.
If they set up the tags first in Kepware then Ignition displays the point as a float as requested. If they don’t set up the tag but try to read the ‘D’ register directly with the Ignition SQLTag Data Type set to ‘Float’, the data is always displayed as an integer. It’s like Kepware is ignoring the Data Type completely.
I’m aware that with native Ignition drivers like the Modbus driver you can apply type conversion in the address, but I thought OPC UA tags had their own type.
Has anyone had a similar experience?
