Tag create is not letting me pick Global.Local:2:O.Data.2 from ControlLogix

I saw a post where a person got an integer for the Data part.
Then they said they use GetBit(), but it was in 2013.
Didn't see how to do it in a tag either.

What are my options to get these bits to tags?

I guess I am going to try using expression bindings.
getBit({BitTag}, 0)

You have to enter the bit address manually. Should work after that.


Will be good to know for next time.

You can drag the integer OPC item to make a new tag, then edit the new tag to:

  • Give it a meaningful name, then

  • Change the type to boolean, and

  • Add the .0 suffix to the OPC Item Path. (Or whatever other bit you need.)
