MHJ

Requirements

  • MHJ Edition or Ultimate Edition
  • WinSPS-S7 or WinPLC-Engine

This driver allows FACTORY I/O to be used together with WinSPS-S7 and WinPLC-Engine, which are low-cost alternatives to official Siemens software. WinSPS-S7 is a PLC programming tool for S7 PLC with a built-in PLC simulator (S7-300/400). WinPLC-Engine is a S7-300 PLC simulator that can be programmed with STEP7 V5.x, TIA Portal V11/12/13/14.

Configuration

FACTORY I/O will automatically detect WinSPS-S7 or WinPLC-Engine. Check how to setup WinSPS-S7 and WinPLC-Engine for FACTORY I/O:

Bit Inputs Defines the memory address offset and the number of digital inputs to use (max 128).
Bit Outputs Defines the memory address offset and the number of digital outputs to use (max 128).
WORD Inputs Defines the memory address offset and the number of WORD inputs to use (max 32). These are used to write floating and integer values to WinSPS-S7 or WinPLC-Engine.
  • Floating sensor values ranging from -10 V to 10 V are linearized between -27648 and 27648 and sent as integers into a Word.
  • Floating sensor values ranging from 0 V to 10 V are linearized between 0 and 27648 and sent as integers into a Word.
WORD Outputs Defines the memory address offset and the number of WORD outputs to use (max 32). These are used to read floating and integer values from WinSPS-S7 or WinPLC-Engine.
  • Floating actuator values ranging from -10 V to 10 V are expected linearized between -27648 and 27648 and encoded as integers.
  • Floating actuator values ranging from 0 V to 10 V are expected linearized between 0 and 27648 and encoded as integers.
