This guide explain how to connect the machine signals from OPC and create standard signals in RS Production.
OPC have 3 different standard types of inputs
OPC value: Example: Article information
OPC counter: Example: Cycle signals / Scrap signals
OPC Status input: Example: ON/OFF signals
First we need to connect the OPC server and tags (1). If you want counter or status tags, they also need to be created in the viritual blackbox (2).
Then create counter and status tags on the virtual Blackbox to complete the OPC connection. (value signals do not need to be created on a viritual black box)
