IBH Link S7 Plus
If a S7 200® ,S7 300® or S7 400® has to be connected with a PC via Ethernet, the normal way is to take a CP / Communication processor. IBH softec has more flexible solution:
IBH Link S7 Plus. If you want to connect your PC via Ethernet just take the IBH Link S7 Plus. It is possible to connect the IBH Link S7 Plus with a hub or switch or via a Crossover cable direct with your PC network card. The used protocol is standard TCP/IP, so you can control your system using VPN or a router. Of course you can also use an Internet connection. With the IBH Link S7 Plus online functions are possible via Profibus DP with up to 12 Mbit/s or via PPI/MPI®. The IBH Link S7 Plus will reduce your costs because there is no need for the CP’s from Siemens nor the software Simatic Net is required.
The driver for SIMATIC MicroWin® ,STEP®7, WinCC, ProTool and of course S7 for Windows® is supplied on CD with your IBH Link S7 Plus. Also you can use the IBH OPC Server to connect your visualisation with the PLC via IBH Link S7 Plus. The IBHNet driver enables you to gain direct variable access via standard programming languages like Visual Basic or Delphi. The configuration of the adapter is very easy and normally done in a few minutes. The IBH Link S7 Plus automatically detects, whether it’s connected to a 10 or 100Mbit/s network. The IBH Link S7 Plus takes it's power supply from the integrated 24V plug.
Besides the programming capabilities also an application programming interface for HMI applications is included.
For Windows operating systems there are samples in the languages Visual Basic® , Visual C®, C++®, VB.net®, C#®, Delphi®, Java®, Excel® included. For Linux there are also samples included.
After installation the samples can be found at:
