There are two ways to create OPC tags.
- From OPC Browser
Using the OPC Browser to browse and find the tag and then drag it to the Tag Browser to create the tag. This method is the easiest and most common way to create tags.
- From Tag Editor
When the tag is not available for browsing from the OPC Browser, you create the tag manually, from the Tag Editor window.
Both of these methods require that you first have a device connection made.
