S7TCP Help

Look for the file S7TCP.chm on your hard disk, or download the driver from here:

https://www.citect.aveva.com/attachm...00_RELEASE.zip

Extract the files, then open the S7TCP_1.10.00.000_RELEASE.exe file with Winzip or WinRAR, and extract the \Drivers\S7TCP\S7TCP.chm file.

Thanks, sigmadelta. Yes, I have that driver already, but what I need is what should I have to set up in Citect to get the communication with the S7 1500 PLC using this driver

Hi sigmadelta. I am getting #BAD when I try to read a REAL value from DB20 in S7 1500 PLC. What is the meaning of "<symbolic name>" for address format?. Do you have a real example of Citect configuration , so I ccould follow it?

<symbolic name> is the symbol name of the DB and DB item. I don't have an example, and I haven't used this specific driver, but try this...

Example:

If your symbol name for DB20 is "MyData" and the REAL data item is called "MyValue", try using MyData.MyValue for the address of the tag, or "MyData".MyValue, or "MyData"."MyValue" as the address of your tag.
