Hello everybody,
We're planning to connect our IRC5 controller via TCP/IP socket connection to Beckhoff TwinCat on an IPC. Is there anyone having experience in that topic. Is there some good documentation/ tutorial/ examples available? I didn't find that much in the ABB documentations.
Do you know if it's possible to execute as well system events (like Motors ON, Start Program) as sending data (like strings) via TCP/IP Socket Connection.
Thanks for your help!
Best regards.
