OPC Client 3.1

To monitor OPC tags from an OPC server in Security Center, you must create OPC entities using the OPC Client plugin.


  1. From the Config Tool home page, open the Plugins task.
  2. Select the OPC Client plugin from the entity browser, and click the Entities tab.
  3. At the bottom of the list of entities, click Import from CSV.
  4. In the Import CSV mapping file dialog box, select the CSV file.
    In the Status field, if the CSV file is configured properly, the number of devices and properties found is displayed. If the CSV file is not configured properly, an error message is displayed indicating the first line in which an error is found.

  5. Click Import.


The number of Security Center entities that were created is displayed in the Entity count field.

The entities are displayed in the entity browser, and listed in the Entities section of the plugin. You can view entity properties on the Properties page of each entity. The entity states are synchronized with the OPC server.
