OmniServer's connectivity and data parsing capabilities are its primary job; however, they are only the part of how OmniServer helps with integrating non-standard devices with Wonderware.  How does the device data actually make it into Wonderware?

In this video blog, part of a series on connecting Wonderware to OmniServer, I'll show you how to make a basic SuiteLink connection from Wonderware InTouch to OmniServer for integrating process data from all of your "other" devices that don't have a standard, off-the-shelf driver - and all without the expense and headaches of having to write custom code.

Watch this video to learn how to connect Wonderware InTouch to OmniServer via SuiteLink, including basic setup, for integrating your non-standard devices without code.  Looking for how to connect System Platform to OmniServer via OPC?  Via SuiteLink?

Just to summarize, in this video, I've shown you:

  1. How to configure a simulation topic in OmniServer using the CLIENT_TEST protocol and RANDOM device.
  2. How to change the Update rate for your topic in an OmniServer topic when connecting via SuiteLink (or other non-OPC clients).
  3. How to configure a basic text value display and SuiteLink client connection in Wonderware InTouch
  4. How to view simulated live data from OmniServer in Wonderware InTouch WindowViewer.
