Siemens s7-300 ppi connection masters detected
I am new to Siemens and having difficulties connection to the S7-300. I have recently been connecting to the 200 without a problem so assumed that establishing communications with the 300 would be similar.
This PLC is out of an old control panel and is currently sitting on a desk.
Hardware i am using is the siemens rs232/ppi Multi-master Cable running in to my laptop USB with an Omron serial converter. (Which was fine for the S7-200)
so i am using PC/PPI able PPI.1 (COM3) interface
And when i refresh the PLC shows as UNKNOWN address:2 187.5 kbps which tells me there is some form of communication. The error comes in the form of:
Masters have been detected on this network. Searching all baud rates is not advisable because a network could occur. To search all baud rates, remove or disable all masters.
Please could someone tell me how to overcome this issue, also what is it referring to as a master??
