Pretty much as the thread title says.
I understand it currently connects to S7-300, S7-400, S7-1200.
But will the current Siemens driver talk to an S7-1500 PLC?
I’ve been asked by someone who (I guess) is considering buying one (the PLC that is).
I haven’t got one myself so obviously cannot just go ahead and try it.
It does, with a few caveats:
- Only global DBs can be accessed.
- The optimized block access must be turned off.
- The access level must be “full” and the “connection mechanism” must allow GET/PUT.
- No read/write to TM/CT areas (applies to S7-1200 as well).
This stuff should go in the user manual soon.
Thanks for the prompt reply.
Your information has gone over my head as I don’t know anything about Siemens PLCs myself but I will pass it on.
