How do you program the communication blocks FB63 "TSEND", FB64 "TRCV", FB65 "TCON" and FB66 "TDISCON" in order to use the ISO-on-TCP protocol for data exchange via the integrated PROFINET interface of an S7-300/S7-400 CPU or via the CP443-1 Advanced?
You can use, for example, the "Open User Communication" over Industrial Ethernet for data exchange via the integrated PROFINET interface of a CPU or via CP4431 Advanced. The protocols below are supported for this:
The following communication blocks are available for "Open User Communication" via Industrial Ethernet using the ISO-on-TCP Protocol:
- FB65 "TCON" for establishing the connection
- FB66 "TDISCON" for ending the connection
- FB63 "TSEND" for sending data
- FB64 "TRECV" for receiving data
These communication blocks are available in the Standard Library -> Communication Blocks.
Copy the latest versions of the above-mentioned communication blocks from the standard library into your user program and then call them in your user program.
The connection data for establishing the ISO-on-TCP connection are saved in a data structure. The data structure "OUCW_1" will be used in this example. This is stored in the DB1 data block and is parameterized by the user.
- Use the "Open Communication Wizard" for simple creation of connection data. This is available for downloading in Entry ID 98957840.
- The ISO-on-TCP connection is not configured in NetPro.
Table 01 shows the "OUCW_1" data structure in which the connection data is stored.

Description of the sample program
The S7 program contains the call of the FB65 "TCON" and the DB1 data block of the "OUCW_1" data structure in which the connection data for setting up the ISO-on-TCP connection are stored. The S7 program also includes the call of the function blocks FB63 "TSEND" and FB64 "TRECV" from the Standard Library -> Communication Blocks. The FB63 "TSEND" is for sending data to an S7 station or to an S5 station, to a PC station or to a third-party system. The FB64 "TRCV" is for receiving data from another S7 station or an S5 station, from a PC station or from a third-party system.
First create the hardware configuration for your S7-300 station. Configure Marker byte 100 as clock marker. The send job is triggered by this clock marker. Save and compile the hardware configuration of your S7-300 station and load it into the CPU.
The STEP 7 program consists of the blocks OB100, OB1, FB1, DB11, DB1, DB100, DB200 and FB63, FB64, FB65 and FB66.
The OB100 is a restart OB and is run when the CPU is restarted (warm start). In this OB the first communication trigger is enabled with marker M0.3.
OB1 is called cyclically. The FB1 is called in OB1 with the instance data block DB11, with the marker M0.3 as INIT_COM parameter and with the marker 10.0 as ABORT parameter. The marker M0.3 is reset in OB1 after the FB1 has been called.
The FB1 is called cyclically in OB1. The following function blocks are called in FB1.
- FB65 "TCON"
- FB63 "TSEND"
- FB64 "TRCV"
- FB66 "TDISCON"
Define connection number
You can change the connection number separately. Change the connection number in network 2 of FB1 in accordance with your configuration. The connection number is stored in a static tag and so in the instance data block DB11.
The connection number "1" is defined in this example.
Establishing a connection is started by a positive edge in the "REQ" input parameter of the FB65 "TCON". The "OUCW_1" data structure with the connection parameters is incorporated in the data block DB1.
On the input parameter "CONNECT" of the FB65 "TCON", the memory area is specified that contains the connection parameterization.
The connection is set up at system start and remains until it is disabled with FB66 "TDISCON", or the CPU goes into STOP mode, or the power supply is switched off.
The send request is triggered by a positive edge at the input parameter "REQ" of the FB63 "TSEND". The send request trigger is controlled by clock marker M100.6 and the variable "SEND_BUSY". If the send request is running, "SEND_BUSY" is set. It is then not possible to trigger a new send request.
You specify the memory area that contains the data to be sent at the input parameter "DATA".
You enter the number of bytes to be sent at the input parameter "LEN".
In this example the Send data is stored in DB100. 100 bytes of data is sent to the communication partner.
The output parameters "DONE", "ERROR" and "STATUS" are required for job evaluation.
If the send request is successfully completed, "SEND_BUSY" is reset. A new send job can now be triggered.
If the send request is completed with an error, then "SEND_BUSY" is likewise reset and the value of the output parameter "STATUS" of the FB63 is saved for an error analysis.
The data can be received as soon as the ISO-on-TCP connection is established.
At the input parameters "DATA" and "LEN" you specify the address and length of the data area where the received data is saved.
In this example 100 bytes of data are received and stored in DB200.
The output parameter "NDR" is for showing that new data has been received. The "RECV_LEN" output parameter indicates the length of the data received.
If the data is received successfully, then the value of the "RCVD_LEN" output parameter is saved.
If the data is not received successfully, then the value of the "STATUS" output parameter is saved and evaluated.
You can disable the ISO-on-TCP connection with the FB66 "TDISCON". You start the request to disable the ISO-on-TCP connection via a positive edge on the input parameter "REQ" of the FB66 "TDISCON".
The STEP 7 project as a download
The STEP 7 project contains a sample program for calling FB1 and the function blocks FB65 "TCON", FB66 "TDISCON", FB63 "TSEND" and FB64 "TRECV" with status evaluation. It was created with STEP 7 V5.5 SP3.

Configuring additional ISO-on-TCP connections
To configure additional ISO-on-TCP connections you copy the FB1 so that you receive another function block (such as FB101). Change the parameters and generate a new instance data block.
