I am trying to communicate a robot controller - OMNICORE C30 to a B&R 4PPC50-101E-10A. I need to determine what route to use for development, the 4PPC50-101E-10A supports ETH TCP/IP, however the OMNICORE C30 communicates using ETH/IP. These two protocols are not directly compatible so I am looking into alternatives.
One alternative is to use OPC UA, if I were to use OPC UA I need to generate another license key for our controllers that includes IoT Gateway this will allow OPC UA communications however I am intrigued regarding the aspect of B&R’s ANSI C++ & C capabilities. Is it possible to use these programming languages in B&R systems to create sockets to other devices using .NET? The intention is that I will have an application written in C or C++ that will be stored on the C50 Power Panel and READ/WRITE to I/O in my robot controller.
Thanks and Regards
