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?
Solved! Go to Solution.
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.
