Importing from OPC Server Databases

This wizard allows you to import tags from either a local OPC Server or a remote one. When you import tags from the OPC Server, the OPC Client worksheet is automatically created to link the tags, eliminating the need to configure the communication interface between the OPC Client from IWS and the external OPC Server.

In the grid displayed in Step 3 (Import Wizard on the Home tab of the ribbon) for this Data Source Type, there is an additional field with the label OPC, which displays the name of the items from the OPC Server.

Note: See Steps 1, 2 and 3 of Import Wizard for the settings and fields that are common for all Source Types.
