Communication of a SIMATIC MV400 to a S7-1500 via PROFINET/IE

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
For industrial identification purposes optical systems like SIMATIC MV400 are indispensable. This application example shows you how to operate the SIMATIC MV400 code reading system via PROFINET on a SIMATIC S7 automation system. In addition, some basic functions of the code reading system are shown.

Task
The SIMATIC MV400 code reading system is to be controlled via PROFINET through a SIMATIC S7-1200/1500 automation system.

Solution
In this application example we demonstrate how to operate the MV400 code reading system via PROFINET through a S7-1200/1500. In the enclosed STEP 7 V13 project it is shown on an detailed example, how the code blocks of the STEP 7 V13 “Identification” library can be used in order to realize the desired functionalities.

In order to clearly demonstrate the functionalities they can be operated via SIMATIC HMI Panel. In addition, a camera configuration file with predefined camera programs and settings and an adjusted CustomGUI (user-defined interface) is included as download.

The following basic functions are realized in this project by the blocks of the STEP 7 library:

  • RESET (initializing the code reader with program number specification, switching code reader to processing mode)
  • READ (reading trigger and result text, reading program number, reading match string)
  • WRITE (program change, enable single program number read, writing match string, enable single match string read)

The following additional functions of the code reading system are shown:

  • Displaying diagnostic screens (via SIMATIC HMI)
  • Loading/saving camera configuration (remote client via SIMATIC HMI)
  • Using user-defined interface (via SIMATIC HMI)

The following figure shows the pictorial schematic of this example application:
