is there a parameter or something else to set on CITECT SCADA (2016 or 2018) which allows to establish the communication between CITECT SCADA and M221 via OFS. the IODeviceInfo stay OFFLINE, while the Device on OFS is ONLINE.
thanks to help
We would require more information about your configuration to give a detailed answer, however, the following should give you something to investigate: -
I have attached a white paper which may give you an insight into the communication method between Citect and OFS, it’s based on a M580 and NOT a M221. Therefore only read the information regarding Citect to OFS.
In fact I have no problem to communicate with M340 or M580 through OFS.
As you recommanded, Citect IOServer and OFS Server are running on the same PC.
In addition, the prject was developped by Vijeo Citect 2015, the communication between Vijeo Citect and M221 via OFS was simple and easy.
When I converted the project to CITECT SCADA, the communcation problem was appear.
Then I tried these:
1- Communication CITECT SCADA & M221 without OFS --> OK
2- communication OFS Client M221 via OFS server --> OK , more, the device "M221" on OFS server was ONLINE & GOOD
But no communication between CITECT SCADA and OFS Server (Tag values "BAD"), I tried to verify the state of IODevice, using IODeviceInfo("M221",3) the value remained "16" , witch means The IODevice was OFFLINE.
If, you need more information, i'll try to send you a screen printers next week.
Unfortunately, I don’t have a M221 and therefore unable to test, however there are still a few things we can try.
