Distinction between Tag and Communication Point

  • Tags in FactoryStudio are any process variable in your project. Calculated values, temporary tags for graphical animation and user interface, data to and from SQL databases, analytics data model, and values for report data aggregation. Tags in FactoryStudio aren’t restricted by licensing, only by built-in software protections for the execution environment. 
  • A Communication Point or I/O is specifically a Tag that is mapped to read, or write, to a PLC register or external I/O. Essentially communication point is the quantity of data you are mapping from your communication protocols.
