The first image looks very similar to the AC 800M OPC Server panel...

... but the second image is very far from anything I've come across with AC 800M.

Are you really using the correct OPC server for the PM590?

I'm not aware of the AC 800M OPC Server being capable of connecting anything else but AC 800M controllers.

As Stefan advised, the AC800M OPC server is for AC800M controllers.

For AC500 you should use the following OPC Server (Named CODESYS OPC Server or similar):

I'm sorry but PM590-ETH is not AC800M. AC800M has processor modules with designation PM8xx
