SIEMENS SIMATIC S7-200 driver

SIEMENS S7-200 driver

Product Overview

The Siemens S7-200 driver works in conjunction with KEPServerEX to exchange data between OPC clients and Siemens S7-200 PLCs using the PPI (11 bit) or PPM (10 bit) protocol. It includes direct support for the EM241 Modem Module. KEPServerEX automatically optimizes data acquisition based on client demand and ensures data integrity through extensive error handling.

ADDITIONAL TECH INFO

The S7-200 driver normally operates using the standard 11 bit PPI protocol. If the use of the EM 241 modem module is required, the S7-200 PPM model must be selected. The S7-200 PPM model allows the driver to operate in a 10 bit mode, which is more compatible with a wide range of off-the-shelf modems. The 10 bit PPM mode can also be used directly on the PLC’s programming port. To enable the 10 bit PPM mode, set the S7-200 programming cable 10 bit mode.

Data Types Description


Data Type Description
Boolean Single bit of a 16 bit value.*
Byte Unsigned 8 bit value.
bit 0 is the low bit
bit 7 is the high bit
Word Unsigned 16 bit value.
bit 0 is the low bit
bit 15 is the high bit
Short Signed 16 bit value.
bit 0 is the low bit
bit 14 is the high bit
bit 15 is the sign bit
DWord Unsigned 32 bit value.
bit 0 is the low bit
bit 31 is the high bit
Long Signed 32 bit value.
bit 0 is the low bit
bit 30 is the high bit
bit 31 is the sign bit
Float 32 bit floating point value.
The driver interprets two consecutive registers as a floating-point
value by making the second register the high word and the first register
the low word.
String Null terminated ASCII string
