It is against the law to copy the software on any medium except as specifically allowed in the license or nondisclosure agreement. The purchaser may make one copy of the software for backup purposes. All rights reserved. It is also possible to access data simultaneously from several PLC Controls. Even a mixed S5 and S7 operation is possible.

A shortcut is installed on your PC. One of the special features of the is to allow direct use of the absolute PLC Variables without declaration. Even variables used in S7 Data Blocks can be accessed via the with their symbolic names. These features eliminate the need of double declarations. For symbolic addresses, PLC programs in following formats may be used. S5 Symbolic table. Please make sure that the Internet Explorer 5.

Only version 5. During installation and registration, entries into the Windows Registry are done automatically. If no license has been entered, the is running in demo mode. A complete configuration and also the use with real PLCs is possible in demo mode.

When connecting to a PLC, a demo screen is shown to the user. These numbers can be found on the "Product ID Card" shipped with the. Please note, that the software needs to be restarted after the license has been successfully entered. Please note, that a license can only be installed once on a specific PC. Installing the same license again on the same PC is not possible. After successful removal of the licese, the software needs to be restarted.

Now the previously chosen protocol needs to be highlighted in the tree view. Via "Modify - Connection settings" the communication parameters for the selected protocol can be chosen.

Please save your changes before transferring the configuration to the server. In the following dialog the server "IBHSoftec. Save your configuration. Now a window may be opened that permits to pick variables for the server via "Modify - Select variables".

Write-protecting variables and changing the default datatype is also possible. Inside a project, multiple PLCs with equal and differtent protocols are possible. All commands of the "Modify" menu are also available by right-clicking of the mouse or using the toolbar.

Only commands valid for the current node can be selected. All other commands are grayed. Addressing of variables with absolute addresses in the is done by using the Simatic Step 7 or Simatic Step 5 syntax. The supports 3 notations for variables. The syntax is always PLCName. Example: PLCName. MW4[7] reads 7 Words starting from the MW4.

Arrays of boolean must always start with Bit 0 within the byte. A variable like PLCName. When writing boolean arrays, always the entire byte is written. In S7 PLCs, strings have 2 leading bytes with additional information regarding the string, the declared length and the current length. Since this information lacks in absolute notation, strings are treated as pure character arrays of the length entered in [Stringlength].

If in a write operation the text is shorter as the length enterd in [Stringlength], the rest is filled up with zeroes. The 'signed' datatypes also exist for the S7.

DBB2 S The data block is always the DB1. DBW2 S DBD2 S This means, that variables are automatically arranged into blocks. These blocks are then read at once from the PLC.

This happens automatically and has no influence on the client application. If the client adds the variables Flag 2. The reason for this behaviour is how the PLCs communication protocols work. The optimization into the blocks is organized by operand areas, that are read in separate requests from the PLC. Each reading from areas like inputs, outputs, flags and every datablock will be organized to a block request. Every block sends it s own request to the PLC. Example: The following variables I2.

DBB2 - DB DBB23, DB DBB23 are read, because this is faster than reading the single bits. The optimization can be taken to absurdity!

Example: Only the variables I2. DBX are to be read. Each request, again, is read in block operations. DBB, DB Now per block approximately 1 kbyte unnecessary data will be read. For the client and the function itself, this does not have any influence, but it puts a heavy load on the communication line.

This strongly reduces performance, since much more data than required is now read. In such a case it makes more sense to "collect" the required variables via the PLCs program into one datablock, which is reduced to the minimum. If spreading the written values form the "interface" DB to the PLCs operands is also performed by the PLC program, the internal optimization can work up to full optimization and the maximum performace is reached.

For a ethernet module CPx43 the throughput is higher. With serial adaptors like a PC adaptor or with a S5, that work at a speed of baud, the throughput is lower.

As we can see, the communication interface in use also has a significant influence on the performance of the server.

These consideration should be taken into account when selecting and arranging the variables. In case the settings do not match your security requirements, alter the suggested settings accordingly. In order to use the program, administrative rights are required. It needs to be explicitly added. A dialog application appears, which permits to do the security settings. In case the two PCs are not part of the same domain, the same local user should be added to both systems.

The default installation of Windows XP authentificates users from remote computers as Guest. This means, that DCOM Clients can not connect to a server, as long as the Guest access is not activated and the Guest does not have enough permissions to access the server. The default behaviour may be changed using the conrol panel. Set this to: "Classic - local users authentifcate as themselves". Please make sure to set the permissions also for the remote access. Per default there is a remote access restriction for the user "Everyone".

This restriction needs to be removed, if access needs to be granted to someone. Disable the Firewall to permit a remote communication. During the installation of the the permission "Everyone - Read" is automatically added.

This may me altered according to your security requirements. To transfer a configuration to the Server, the user also needs the right to write files in the installation folder of the. Alter the settings according to your security requirements.

After these steps are completed, the server may be used with regular User rights. Windows XP: - Log on as Administrator. During the installation of the the permission "Everyone - Full access" is automatically added. There, the server IBHSoftec. DA and the host name can be entered in the properties: Now add a new group.

Here also the server IBHSoftec. The entry OPC Path must stay empty.


IBH S5/S7 OPC Server or IBH OPC Server for S5/S7 PLCs

Ethernet versions PLC. There is no need for other special software. The attributes of the variables f. This allows symbolic access to variables and data block structures. On the supervision level only OPC access is allowed. Between both levels there is a firewall integrated. The configuration of the Ethernet ports can be made using a standard web browser.
