Siemens TIA Portal, Integration

Introduction

This course explains the steps to create PLC tags and enable OPCUA communication between the Simumatik Gateway and PLCSIM Advanced. This will allow you to run the code programed in TIA Portal against a Simumatik system.

Versions of the programs are: – TIA Portal V16.0 – PLCSIM Advanced V3.0

In this example the data that will be transfered is:

  • ‘inputs’: A PLC input byte addressed to %IB10.

  • ‘outputs’: A PLC output byte addressed to %QB6.

The PLC chosen for this example is:

  • Short designation: CPU 1512C-1 PN

  • Article number: 6ES7 512-1CK00-0AB0

  • Firmware version: V2.8
