S7-300 to Kepware via MPI

So we have a large project kicking off, ripping out an old S7-300 and replacing with AB.

We need both systems to run in parallel whilst we gradually migrate from one system to the other.

Kepware is sitting between the 2 and working very well.

Is there a way to export the tags from the Siemens into the Kepware aside actually adding them manually.

The Siemens seems to export in .asc whilst the Kepware wants .csv?

Is there another way?

Found a clunky way via excel, not ideal but works.

You can use AWL source of DB-block. Then use Siemens Excel tool and lastly you need only to chance kepware csv format.

Easy and timetaking because all dots and commas needs to be right place on csv-formatfile

I appreciate your reply, but we are the familiar with the AB side and not the old Siemens side.

I got there in the end with a lot of copy and pasting and d!cking about.

PS I hate Siemens!
