robbudge Posted November 28, 2018 Share Posted November 28, 2018 We are currently building a large brewery, this will consist of 3 separate HMI Masters. BrewHouse 4000 Tags OPC PLC1 Cellar 3000 Tags OPC PLC2 CIP 1000 Tags OPC PLC3. Plus a Common Client for out on the brewhouse floor. The project is currently built as single project and we 'Import' the channel table before deploying on the relevant HMI Master/Server We currently utilize start-up flags to indicate Master or Client and also in the case of the master its location. Now the interesting part. The remote client configuration does not need any local channel tables as it will create new connections to the BrewHouse,Cellar & CIP on the startup flag. Ideally i would have 3 LOCAL Channel tables, with the OPC Symbols configured, LOCAL-Brewhouse, LOCAL-Cellar, LOCAL-CIP. Then depending on the startup flags. Client, Disable all LOCAL Channels Master-Brewhouse, Disable LOCAL-Cellar and Disable LOCAL-CIP Master-Cellar, Disable LOCAL-BrewHouse and Disable LOCAL-CIP Master-CIP, Disable LOCAL-Cellar and Disable LOCAL-BrewHouse. All my Channels are prefixed BH,CIP,Cellar so I am tempted to import all 3 tables into the single project and use script to disable the specific prefixed channels when needed, just not to sure if they still get passed to the OPC Channel driver. Thinking there could be an easier way ?? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
