The PI Interface for OPC DA is packaged with the PI OPCtoCSV tool which extracts all OPC Items. When the tool is run into error with certain branches, the tool will stop and disconnected from the OPC server/tunneller. For example: “GetItemProperties(“xxx”) error 0x800706be. The remote procedure call failed. pEnumleaves Next() returned 0x800706ba”
If we could specify an option for the tool to skip those branches in error and also attempt to reconnect to the OPC server/tunneller, for automation purpose for the tool to continue running instead of exiting.1 vote
For a PI tag with a specific scan class, if no new value is collected by the PI Interface after a period of time (for example 2x the scan class) , the interface will add automaticaly the value "No Data". It will avoid the usage of a dedicated analyze for this, in the PI Server. And like that, the PI user will be aware of the issue, by using any PI Visualization tool.1 vote
PI Connectors already use the Event Viewer to log messages. It is time for PI Interfaces to do the same.0 votes
