Open user communication to 3rd party control system (CLX/GLX controller)
To communicate between different controllers of different manufacturers, several options are available. One is the possibility of using a gateway. Another one is the use of own communication blocks for the controllers.
The libraries in this article provide communication blocks for the communication between S7-1500/S7-1200 controllers and ControlLogix/GuardLogix controllers. They provide a function block for the S7-1500/S7-1200 and an AOI for the ControlLogix/GuardLogix.
This article offers you the following advantages:
- communication blocks which are flexible to use (as Server or Client, for sending or receiving, ...)
- easy-to-use and easy-to-adapt program blocks.
- detailed step-by-step instructions for the use of the libraries
