S5 / S7

PLC is S7 compatible

Please select, if an S7 PLC is used.

If an S7 PLC is used, extended datablocks are available instead of datablocks. This means, that datablocks with a number higher than 255 (up to 65536) can be used.

Attention:The Driver is word oriented (16 Bit). Only entire word varaibles are read/written. The S7 PLC is byte oriented (8Bit). Be sure that the addressed areas exist in the PLC as well.

Example: Example:A datablock is created until offset 17. The driver reads the offsets 17 and 18. If the offset 18 does not exist in the block, a communication error will be displayed.
