Intouch to DeviceNet Communication


Thread Starter


I am looking to communicate from Wonderware's Intouch 8.0 to a Device Net Slave.

The problem is physical space, I have none.

My thought is to use the Laptop that Intouch is on as the device net master.

Do you know of a way to do this with a low cost and what server I would need?
OPC Link to someone's OPC Server.

SST/Woodhead has Device Net connectivity products (ISA/PCI cards) and the OPC Server from them is free.

Also OPC Link requires an i for int, r for real, d for discrete and m for message when you address the item names in IO type tags (InTouch tags).
