Unity pro OFS

Hello,

I am new with schneider so i will seem like beginner.

 

I have unity pro xl v13. And i have it working fine.

I am making a scada program in which i will use M580 variables... they seem a lot ... need 2000 variables so far and it is hard to add each variable at a time, that is where the OFS comes in, when i try to follow the tutorials on youtube made by schneider experts to the letter... i seem to get an error that tells me that i don't have a license for the OFS.

My question is, does the OFS server requires a license for it or is it activated when you activate Unity pro XL because if it is the 2nd option then i might have a problem that i need help with please. If not, can someone please explain it to me and thank you.

Re: Unity pro OFS

OFS is a separate product and will require a software license.. If you are using a SCADA software package check with the manufacture to see if the Schneider Electric OFS server license is include. Schneider Electric currently offers OPC DA and OPC UA software. Both of these packages will run for a period of time in "demo" mode, which will allow you to test the software.

Re: Unity pro OFS

Schneider has some SCADA packages like CitectSCADA, AVEVA Wonderware and Machine SCADA Expert that bundle OFS for free.  You just need to pay for the SCADA license. Contact your local Schneider distributor

Re: Unity pro OFS

Hi, First of all, there is demo version of the OFS(OPC Factory Server) so also this version can be used without licence during 1 hour which is downloaded as following link.

To use loaded demo version, you should remove exist large version which is on the computer and then load demo version.

Re: Unity pro OFS

Just a correction.

OFS (OPC-DA) and OPC-UA Server Expert will both run for 72h if the Demo version is installed. This feature was provided to allow users to set up a test SCADA application and communicate with Modicon PLC's for FAT etc within an engineering office.

Latest OFS V3.6.3 is available here

Latest OPCUA V2.01 is available here
