Option 2.1. Read Data

You can read data from valid data areas. Valid data areas are determined by the programmable controller type. The format for entering a data address is the same one you use when you configure points for a CIMPLICITY project.

To read data from the targeted programmable controller:

  1. Enter the address of the data in the Data address field to the left of the Read button. This activates the Read button

  2. Click Read.

If the read request completes successfully, the data appears in the Data value field and the status message field says the read was successful. All read data is displayed in hexadecimal. Bit type data such as discrete I/O, Timer Contact, Time Coil, Counter Contact and Counter Coil are displayed as 1 or 0.

If the read request fails, an error message is displayed in the status message field.
