Wonderware Tech Note 563 “Configuring Wonderware FSGateway to Access Historian Data from Wonderware Application Server” is available.
Wonderware IndustrialSQL Server Historian (InSQL) provides an I/O Server called aahIOSvrSvc. This I/O Server is an interface for clients to access data from the Historian. It uses the SuiteLink protocol. The Historian I/O Server is re-configured with a single topic called tagname. The Historian I/O Server listens for clients that are attempting to establish a connection using the pre-configured topic.
Wonderware FSGateway is a communications protocol converter. It is used to link clients and data sources communicating with different communication protocols such as SuiteLink, DDE, FastDDE, and ArchestrA Message Exchange.
This Tech Note provides the step-by-step procedure to:
- Configure the FSGateway to communicate with the Historian I/O Server
- Configure the OPCClient proxy object from the Wonderware Application Server to access data from the Historian / FSGateway OPC Server via OPC protocol.
