I have made VC-RS connection with UDP socket. Check the attached zip. There is a RS Pack&Go and a VC model. Unpack RSPAG and open the project on RS. Open VC model on same PC. Hit play on VC and then try jogging RS model or run the program on it. RS should echo joint values and outputs to the VC model. And VC model should return inputs to RS.
RS model does the communication in background tasks and robot system must have Multitasking and PC Interface options. VC model communicates via python script in “UDP link” component. Script uses standard python socket module to establish UDP socket.
And OPC cannot be used as VC support OPC UA and as far as I know ABB still only has support for OPC DA.
