Re: DH+ Gateway to Connect to SLC5/04 [SOLVED]
All, sorry for the delay in updating the community on this issue. With that said we have a (actually two) sucessful ways to interface Ignition (7.4.2 (b953)) via DH+. The solutions are the Datalink Tech GW1000-ABEIP interface and the Equustek Solutions EQ7000 Eithernet to DH+ interface. The interfaces are deployed on two separate but identical systems. The data is being transmitted via a wirless network infrastructure which is tranparent to the interfaces and Ignition. These devices do require an "upgrade" to the AB/SLC driver module in Ignition (Thanks Tom H for great support on this).
The GW1000 has been running for over a month with no issues. The unit recovers from planned and unplanned power losses smoothly. Unit set up was easy. The only "knocks" are the very poor support from the Sales Staff and Tech Staff.
The EQ7000 was only installed yesterday so I cannot report on the reliability of the unit yet. Unit set up was a little more complicated than the GW1000 but it should pose no issue for anyone reading this. Sales support was great, Tech support was not needed as Tom H had already done the heavy lifting on the AB module for the GW1000.
