Connecting directly to ControlLogix PLC without OPC
We need to run a small automated report on an AB 1756-L81E (ControlLogix) on Axiom.
There is no OPC UA server, and we would like to access the data without it.
It seems that Canary has a MicroLogix collector, but is there a ControlLogix equivalent without the use of an OPC/alternative collector?
Can we collect from the PLC in any other way without purchasing a server/driver?
Any help appreciated!
Hi danie ,
We can collect from an AB ControlLogix device if using the Central Administrator and Collector. This is outside of Canary's typical install. I would recommend reviewing the documentation here: https://helpcenter.canarylabs.com/category/central-admin-v22
When you get to "How to Configure a Node Device" you will see there are attached templates. One is for an AB device which can collect from MicroLogix or ControlLogix. If you would like to test this out I can send you a link to download the install and needed files.
