I want to be able to establish a connection between my CRX Fanuc Robot and an Allen-Bradley HMI without using any PLC. The goal is to utilize the "HMI Device (SNPX) (R553)" option on the robot so that it acts as an OPC-UA Server and have an Allen-Bradley HMI that acts as the OPC-UA Client so that I can access the robot I/Os and Registers.
Has any of you done something similar (with other HMI companies maybe)?
I am being told that Allen-Bradley HMIs can be OPC-UA clients when used with Kepware!? What implication does this have knowing that I want a "stand alone" HMI (no plc)?
Thanks in advance.
