Is it possible to establish communication between SoMachine platform PLC and vijeo designer simulator.
Yes, it is possible to establish communication between SoMachine platform PLC and Vijeo designer simulator
by using Modbus TCP/IP protocol.Set IP address, subnet Mask of target machine same as that of PC (Editor) on
which SoMachine and Vijeo Designer are running.
With vijeo designer, add Modbus TCP/IP driver to I/O manager and add Modbus TCP equipment under it. Set IP
address of PLC to the field “Equipment I/P address”.Run vijeo designer simulator on Local-PC and connect same
local-PC with SoMachine (running on it) to the SoMachine platform controller (M218, M238, M258 and LMC058 etc.).
It is beneficial to test communication even without physical HMI controller.
Note: Both the devices SoMachine Platform controller and & target selected in vijeo designer must have Ethernet port.
