Topic#: 000896 Created: October 17, 2000

This Tech Note describes the necessary steps for establishing TCP/IP communications via the Wonderware S7 I/O Server to an S7-400 PLC, through a standard Ethernet card in the PC and a CP 443-1 module in the S7-400 Universal Rack for Windows NT 4.0.

This Tech Note assumes the user has a basic working knowledge and understanding of the Siemens Simatic Net, Siemens Step 7 and Wonderware FactorySuite I/O Server software.

The following steps are covered:

Configuring Siemens hardware and Software

Creating a Database Using COML S7

Configuring/Activating the Standard Ethernet Card

Verifying the TCP/IP Interface

Accessing/Configuring the CP 443-1 TCP Module

Configuring a Topic for the Wonderware S7 I/O Server

Testing S7 Communications with the Wonderware S7 I/O Server

Configuring Siemen’s Hardware and Software

Step 1: Creating a Database Using COML S7 (v2.11)

The following steps are based on version 2.11 of the Siemens COML S7 software. Wonderware Technical Support recommends that you use the current available version of COML S7 from Siemens.

The COML S7 program is used to create the .TXT and .LDB files required for Simatic Net to interface a standard Ethernet card to the CP 443-1 TCP module on the S7-400 Universal Rack (UR).

Perform the following steps to create the .TXT and .LDB files.

1. Start the COML S7 program; the SIMATIC NET COML S7 dialog box should appear as shown in Figure 1.

FIGURE 1. CREATING A .TXT FILE

2. Use the following information to create your .TXT file:

Node name: Name of the station. Used only for documentation purposes. It has no meaning to the project.

Network type: Select TCP/IP from the drop-down list box since the CP installed in the PC is a standard Ethernet card.

Name: Enter a meaningful connection name (maximum 32 characters). This connection name will appear again when you create topics in the S7 I/O Server.

VFD name: This VFD name is used by an application to specify which S7 connection to use. The Virtual Field Device (VFD) name is used during the topic configuration in the I/O Server.

Remote addr.: This is the IP address of the CP 443-1 TCP to connect to on the S7-400 UR. It should match the IP address defined in Step7 programming software.

Local TSAP: The Transport Service Access Point (TSAP) is the layer 4 address. The first two digits specify the device. The last two digits must be zero. Wonderware Technical Support recommends a setting of 01.00

Remote TSAP: This address consists of two parts:

group: specification of the device: 01 = PG, 02 = OS, 03 = others

group: addresses of the SIMATIC components: (Bit 0

2)

= Rack (Subsystem), (Bit 3

7)

= Plug in port

Wonderware Technical Support recommends a setting of 03.0x, where x = slot of the CPU (not the CP). Since the CPU is normally installed next to the power supply (which takes 2 slots), the usual setting here is 03.03

3. When completed, save the .TXT file under File/Save Text Database as shown in Figure 2, then click OK.
