Connection between software controller and WinCC V7 via Windows network
This document shows you how to establish an HMI connection between a SIMATIC S7-1500 Software Controller and SIMATIC WinCC V7.4 SP1 via the Windows network.
In the software CPU 1507S variables are made available in a global data block for the visualization software SIMATIC WinCC V7.4 SP1. The visualization computer does not have to be located in the PROFINET network, since a communication connection can be established via the virtual interface (V2 and V1) of the software controller (V2.5) with IP routing. Thus, the visualization computer can also be physically located in the Windows network and connected to the software controller computer via the Windows interface (X1).
