I’m investigating if Ignition is a platform we can use.
We mainly use Siemens 1500 plc’s so the Ignition driver is a no-go as it doesn’t support optimized blocks. So that leaves the built in OPC server in the PLC, which i got working.
However when I use the OPC browser and drag the tag in, it makes it as a document type.
Do i have to make the datatype first, if so how would you do this? I looked up the documentation but could not figure it out. And is it possible to import said UDT somehow?
I’m coming from a WinCC background so the whole thing is quite new for me. Different design philosophy
Ignition version is 8.0.16
