Hi...
I need som tips..
I use the " Imports OPCAutomation "
The read and write works verry good but it takes to long time..
about 5 sec for every tagg..

I just made som code to show how I use it...

 

        Dim tagggg(50) As OPCItem
        Dim i As Integer = 1
 
       For i = 1 To 30
            tagggg(i) = plcReadTest1Group.OPCItems.Item(i)
           tagggg(i).Read(OPCAutomation.OPCDataSource.OPCDevice)    ' <---- This line takes about 5 sec...
            MainForm.resultat(i) = "'" + tagggg(i).Value.ToString() + "'"
        Next i
I hope somone have som tips how I can fix this.. can i read from other way?

Please ask me if my question isen´t clear....

Maybe I can make only one read from the OPC..  like I read a array... and then sort the data..

Have anyone done a Array read from a OPC-Server?
