  2. Configure Tags
    OAS provides multiple ways to configure tags including:

Connect to OPC Clients like WinCC Cimplicity, RS View etc. by making OAS tags available as OPC items. Sample client Add OPC items from OPC Server Our OPC server makes OPC items to connnect to

Use the OAS Excel Tag Browser application to browse OAS tags and enable OAS read / write values from/to an Excel workbook

Use the Configure Recipes interface to configure data transfer from databases to OPC data targets. The data target can be from local or remote OAS Services of Tag Parameter Values. Execution can be continuous up to 1 second speed, event driven from a Tag Parameter value, or at a specific time of day.The database providers can be SQL Server, SQL Server Desktop (MSDE), Access, Oracle, mySQL, or ODBC.

Add real-time read data to a C#, C++, or Visual Basic.NET WinForm or Windows Service application. It is a very powerful method to make any data from a .NET application become a realtime data source.

Read local and remote data from the Open Automation Software realtime database tags where the data source is a web application or web service. You can make use of the OAS products Web HMI, Web Trend, Web Alarm or for greater control use the OAS REST API or the HTTP API.

Data Sources are configured using the the OAS Configuration Manager

Data Sources Overview

Modbus Data Source

If your data source is a Modbus slave device with either Ethernet or Serial physical interface with Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU, or Modbus ASCII protocol use Configure-Drivers and Configure-Tags to setup communications to the devices.

Refer to Getting Started Modbus under System Configuration-Tags for a quick guide on how to set it up.

Allen Bradley Data Source

If your data source is an Allen Bradley controller use Configure-Drivers and Configure-Tags to setup communications to the devices.

Refer to Getting Started Allen Bradley under System Configuration-Tags for a quick guide on how to set it up.

Siemens Data Source

If your data source is a Siemens controller use Configure-Drivers and Configure-Tags to setup communications to the devices.

Refer to Getting Started Siemens under System Configuration-Tags for a quick guide on how to set it up.

MQTT Data Source

If your data source is MQTT use Configure-Drivers and Configure-Tags to setup communications to the devices.

Refer to  Getting Started MQTT under System Configuration-Tags for a quick guide on how to set it up.

OPC Server Data Source

If your data source is an OPC Server use Configure-Tags to define a Tag with a Data Source of OPC Item or you can use DirectOPC from the database.

For a detailed presentation of connecting to OPC Servers view the following video:
