Hi guys. I have a small process in which we want to start collecting data in the form of 2 tags and storing them to a database. Eventually this will be duplicated to a few other machines, but even when everything is up to snuff the total collected tags will probably be less than 10. We have a computer in the area we want to use as a process computer, but because of the size of the project, I'd like to get away with something cheap and small, rather than buying a whole license for FIX or some other similar program. All I really need to do is have a background script running all the time which will grab the 2 tag values once every hour and store them to a database. The tags are available as I will be getting them from a Panelview Plus terminal running RSView. The panelviews do not have much for background scripting capabilities though. Does anyone know of a reasonably priced software package or anything that could be installed on this process computer that I can program to grab the tags from the PV+ and store them to a database? Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
