Siemens S7-1200 via CP1243-1 Additional Ethernet Interface


Has anyone connected Ignition to an s7-1200 CPU via a CP1243-1 communications processor and successfully read CPU memory areas?

CPU on board Ethernet interface is being used for Profinet distributed IO on a local subnet.
CP interface is being used for connection to corporate subnet for programming changes and connection to SCADA.

Device has been successfully connected in the Gateway but when creating tags in designer quality is shown as bad.

Images of device and tag configuration.


Did you check these settings in the PLC?

Note that any changes to these settings require you to recompile software and hardware configuration and download both.

Thanks for the help.

After enabling 'permit access with PUT/GET communication' the tags are reading.
