Factory IO to FluidSim

I made a video about to conect FluidSim to Factory IO


Nice one! Didn’t even know this was possible!

Now we only need Process I/O with tanks, valves and pumps. @brunovgr :wink:

Thanks for the video. I watched most with translation to English and found it understandable. I really need to play more with OPC … nice that you got it to work.

How did you get pneumatic actuators? I have the ultimate edition but these do not exist?



Thank you for this video.
But I still have a probleme with the OPC Client DA/UA.
When I select FestoDidactic.EzOPC.1 as server.
I have only the representation of the bytes and not each bit (print screen in attachement).

How can I configurate the OPC Client DA/UA to have each bit visible in order to assign the sensors and actuators?

You mean the Pusher?

PS. Sorry for the late reply.

Afaik it depends on the OPC server if you can address single bits or not. But I don’t work enough with OPC to tell you more.

@janbumer1 Yes, you are right. @theophile.umuhire You will have to configure Bool items in the OPC server. Factory I/O just browses the OPC server address space and retrieves all items that go through the filters.

Unfortunately, I don’t have access to that OPC server in our labs in order to investigate this further.
