I am new to OpenAPC and I am look for instruction on how you add tags from a PLC, or what OpenAPC calls a PLC tag (external tag)? I have tried searching the manual for tags, tagnames, tag names, communications, OPC… I think from what I have found so far that I need to use a plug-in to get data from a device but where does it go after that? How do I recall a tag for use on the graphics?


Either a direct answer or read chapter “XX” would be appreciated,
