The PLC module enables communication with PLC systems (currently only Siemens SIMATIC S7 1200 or 1500). A Modbus server is configured in the TIA portal and transferred to the PLC. Subsequently, communication with drag&bot is possible via TCP/IP: From the PLC, drag&bot programs with process parameters can be started directly. It is also possible to read/write the IOs of the PLC from drag&bot and send the results of the robot program back to the PLC.
How does the deployment work?
COMPONENT MANAGER – Here the user configures the connected hardware. The installation of the corresponding drivers takes place automatically in the background.
BUILDER – Applications can be created from predefined function blocks using drag and drop.
WIZARDS – Graphical operating and input aids: Users can adapt function blocks to the specific requirements of their application without expert knowledge.
RUN VIEW – The created applications are executed here. With one click you return to the Builder and can extend and optimize the application.
