NX MCD

Hello everyone!

I am trying to connect NX 11.0.0 with virtual CPU-1500.

In TIA portal, I create a controller with OPC UA server and then I upload it to PLC SIM Advance virtual controller.

Before I’ am trying to connect CPU with NX, I‘ am tested id with opc client - OPC scout, and the connection was fine - i can read and write variables from CPU.

Next I ‘am trying to add my OPC server to NX (choose remote server and add controller ID with port to server ProgID), but I received the warning "the server not reachable".

Can U help me with this problem? Maybe NX didn't support OPC UA?

Hi Michail!

 

OPC UA will be available with NX 12.0 in Mechatronics Concept Designer.

But NX 12.0 also offers a direct connection type to PLCSIM Advanced, which is way easier. It doesn't require a Signal Server at all.

 

Regards,

Johannes

Thank you, Johannes for help.

Is it possible to ask my questions about configurated OPC DA server here ? I'have some problems with this task.
