Fancy Exclamation S7 Ethernet $ Sick CLV 650 Barcode Reader

Hi Guys,

Ethernet on siemens is new to me so i am hoping someone can help me with this.
I have a S7 315 with a 343-1 and i need to connect a sick CLV 650 bar code reader to it. What i need to know is how to write the software for the connections and send an Ascii character to the bar code reader and recieve the data from the reader.

Thanks in advance

Problem is that the SICK scanner "supports TCP/IP", but that does not in itself say very much. It also supports Ethernet/IP, but that will work with an AB PLC, not a Siemens PLC.
I would seriously consider a barcode scanner that can be integrated directly with an S7 PLC without you having to use too much time with figuring out how to get the SICK scanner to work with an S7.

A short search on the www revealed this scanner that has a Profinet interface:
http://www.leuze.de/press/data/bcl548i/bcl548i_en.html
There may be other possibilities with Profibus or Profinet.
For the Leuze scanner with PN, the easiest would be to ditch the 315+CP343-1 for a 315-2PNDP with an integrated PN port. Will be better and same price anyway.

Can you make the guy who purchased the barcode scanner figure it out for you ?

Sick have some gateway modules to interface to Profibus.
I would go that way if I were you.

For sure you will need one gate way to exchange data from CLV to your PLC(Ethernet and MPI capable only?),CLV itself can't work alone. And also later for configuring scanner by CLV-Setup, gate way also necessary.

Thanks after some thought I have thought about connecting it through my HMI (19" PC 677Touch) this may provide my gateway so i can pass the data onto the PLC. Once solved i will re-post what i did.
In the mean time further answers are appreciated.
