Establishing RsLinx OPC Connection via VB
Looking for links to a tutorial on how VB can establish connection to the Allen Bradley PLC 5/05 OPC RSLinx.

Hi,

I am a newbie to PLCs. I am using Allen Bradley SLC 5/05 to control a Assembly Process. I have different sub routines in the RSLogix Program to assemble different parts. I would like to create a web page which is interfaced with the VB to trigger a particular subroutine.

I am focusing on the interface communication between PLC RS Logix and VB right now. I was wondering if someone could provide links to tutorial on how VB can establish connection to the Allen Bradley PLC 5/05 OPC RSLinx.

Many Thanks

There are a bunch of examples on the Allen Bradley website in their knowledge base.
