      Hi Dhanji
      I understand the question is not fully. Is that interface with PLC? If you want to visualize processes in the PLC, you should look for possibilities of WEB server of the PLC. Every PC has the WEB tool. Or you can create your own HTML pages with Java or JavaFX applets.
      Example with Allen Bradley PLC: Create XML file and place it in directory of the WEB server, WEB server update variables, with javascript read these variables and give to JavaFX applets in the HTML page.

    Geacht heer Sentcha,

    Na enig onderzoek of het internet vond ik uw site met daarin enige aangepaste blokken van het WinCC pakket. Op een project waar ik nu mee bezig ben maak ik ook gebruik van de faceplates van het siemens BST project. Hierbij wordt er gebruik gemaakt van een analoog aangestuurde klep, de BST_Sipart komt hier niet goed mee weg. Ik denk dat u daar de CValve voor heeft ontwikkeld.

    Graag zou ik gebruik willen maken, van de door u aangepaste, ontwikkelde faceplates en PDL’s

    Hopende op een reactie

      Geachte heer Jan Landewers,
      Tijdens ontwikkelen van project, BST-Sipart en BST_ANALOG en algemeen BST template blokken waren gebruikt als templates. Functionaliteit van BST-Sipart was weggehaald en van BST_ANALOG was toegevoegd. Dit project was tijd geleden gemaakt en ik weet het niet of deze source van het blok is volledig goed is. Ik heb WinCC faceplate source toegevoegd.

    Can it be used for communication with the logo 0BA7?

  9. Marcin Sareło Says:

    I have a problem with the s200, so I try to connect using the library (via Java) and get the following exception while reading data:
    Interface.write: java.net.SocketException: Software caused connection abort: socket
    Full stack is the same as:
    Do You know what is wrong? When I try use PLCCom (http://www.indi-an.de/ ) with the same ip, rack and slot everything works properly.
    Best regards and I hope to help
