ICX requires the presence of the appropriate API/OPC license. With ICX it is possible to purchase a single Product Key which covers all stations connected to all ICX's in a network. ICX licenses can be stacked, i.e. 1x 1002602306 + 2x 1002602309 gives 1088 API licenses which can be used on 2 or more ICXs.

OPC Server Configuration

Follow the installation instructions for OPC Classic for AlphaCom - Installation

Note icon Note: At this time, there is a buffer overflow bug in SiPass that will crash the server if the message format exceeds the limits. It is suggested to remove some data from the message field. This can be achieved by changing the format to use to NoPrefixDirNo in a single node system, and by removing the timestamp from each message. If you notice any part of your message missing from the SiPasss Alarms display, you must shorten the message.

An example configuration could look like this
