Can any one give an example of configuration inside Allen-Bradley program to receive data from and send to an 460ETCMM?
We have already the comms with all MB slave working but don’t understand what we ave to do on PLC!
The configuration on the PLC side is pretty straightforward. All you need to do is click on Controller Tags in the PLC program and go to the Edit Tags tab and create a new tag that matches the name and data type of the tag you configured in the scan lines in our gateway. Make sure the tag is in Controller Scope and has Read and Write Access.
EX: In the Read Scan lines in our gateway you created a DINT tag called test_dint with a length of 5. In the PLC, create a tag called test_dint of type DINT.
You can create new tags while the PLC is in running mode. If the PLC is not running when making these changes, then you will need to save and download changes to the PLC and put PLC in running mode for the new tag to be activated.
Emily, it was so simply I couldn’t believed, its works. Thxs for Your Support.
