OPC with PCo but without MII

Hello,

I've got a little task where I didn't found a solution yet.

Is it possible to use an OPC-Server connected with PCo in SAP without having MII running?

The background is that we have PCo already running for connection with PLCs. Now a scanner should be tied in. Unfortunally it can't be controlled via the PLC but there's an existing OPC-Server already running. On SAP we will have EWM running.

Is there a possibility to call directly a FM or class for trigger the scanner via PCo?

Thanks

Markus

    Hi Markus,

    Which version on PCo you are using 2.0 or 2.1.

    Is it possible to use an OPC-Server connected with PCo in SAP without having MII running?

    yes you can trigger RFC directly through notification

    but see the help for PCo2.1 under destination system

    The RFC destination system is used only with the socket agent for communication with SAP Extended Warehouse Management (EWM) and socket-based programmable logic controls.

    [http://help.sap.com/saphelp_pco21/helpdata/en/46/a00344d44852b7e10000000a155369/frameset.htm]

    hope this help

    Regards,

    Manoj Bilthare

    Hello Markus,

    unfortunately the answer is no. There are only 3 possible destinations in PCo in version 2.0 and 2.1: MII, EWM und ME (a extension).

    There is a SDK for PCo 2.1, but it covers only the implementation of new source systems (in C#), but not the implementation of new destination systems.

    Maybe you can make it work by using the ME extension. The ME destination contains a workflow manager, where you can insert arbitrary C# code. Just check it out:

    Best regards,

    Martin
