How can I Write and read directly from NI Vision to Plc?
in other words, how can connect to another device through OPC by NI Vision?
Many thanks for your reply.

We have several application notes that explain how to do that:
Using Vision Builder AI as an OPC Server: http://www.ni.com/white-paper/13574/en
For implementation in LabVIEW, just search for OPC on ni.com. There are a lot of documents explaining how to implement this communication protocol.
If you give us more details (who you want to be the server or client), we can provide better guidance.
Hope this helps.

To allow VBAI to connect to an OPC Server (i.e. act as an OPC client), you need to purchase and install the DSC Run-time System.
Once installed, you can create an OPC I/O client using the Distributed System Manager, create variables bound to OPC tags, then create VBAI network variables that are bound to these variables.
Another possible technical solution to connect to OPC Servers supporting Data Access 2.0 is to use the datasocket API in a Run LabVIEW step.
