Communication with Modicon PLC devices

For communication of the PROMOTIC application with Modicon PLC devices by the Schneider-Electric company (http://www.schneider-electric.com), for example, the following methods can be used:

Communication by the Modbus protocol

The Modicon devices support the communication by the Modbus protocol. For this communication in the PROMOTIC system can be used:
For this driver, it is recommended to set the configurators:
- PmaCommGroup > Parameters > Special Parameters > Area base addresses:
- Base address "Bo = Coil/output bits" = 0 (for old PLC types = 1)
- Base address "Bi = Input bits" = 0 (for old PLC types = 10001)
- Base address "Ro = Holding/output registers" = 0 (for old PLC types = 40001)
- Base address "Ri = Input registers" = 0 (for old PLC types = 30001)
- PmaCommGroup > Parameters > Special Parameters > Maximum number of variables received in one message:
- Maximum number "Bo = Coil/output bits" = 64
- Maximum number "Bi = Input bits" = 64
- Maximum number "Ro = Holding/output registers" = 32
- Maximum number "Ri = Input registers" = 4

Communication by OPC server

An OPC server (for example by the Schneider-Electric company) - see Communication by OPC interface.
Then the PROMOTIC application will communicate as a client by the OPC interface.
