Settings in "Status/Force" when using a WinAC MP

  • Entry

What should you watch out for when incorporating the Status/Force in ProTool V6.0 when using a WinAC MP as controller?

Once you have inserted the "Status/Force" OCX into a ProTool picture, you are led automatically to the Properties dialog of the object. For a connection with the WinAC MP, in the "General" tab you must set "SIMATIC S7 - 300/400" and not "SIMATIC S7 - WinAC") for the PLC.
