PPI connection of ProTool/Pro and S7-200
Can you connect the runtime version of ProTool/Pro with an S7-200 via PPI?
ProTool V5.2 / SP 1 and lower:
In the description you have read that it is possible to connect the runtime version of ProTool/Pro with an S7-200 via PPI. But a PC/PPI cable is not sufficient for this. You need the CPs CP5411, CP5511, CP5611 or MPI on-board. Also, when using the PPI protocol, you should note that only one S7-200 controller can be addressed. With MPI you can use several controllers.
ProTool V5.2 / SP 2 and higher:
The following PC/PPI cable is released as a pure point-to-point interface between a ProTool/Pro Runtime (V5.2 / SP2 and higher) and a SIMATIC S7-200:
- MLFB 6ES7 901-3BF20-0XA0
The necessary drivers are installed automatically with ProTool/Pro Runtime V5.2 / SP2. The drivers are released for Windows 95/98.
