XS7PPI: Siemens S7-200 Advanced PPI Protocol Driver v10.0

XS7PPI: Siemens S7-200 Advanced PPI Protocol Driver

General Information:

The XS7PPI driver can be used to read or write data from or to PLCs of the S7-200 series that use the Siemens Point To Point Advanced PPI Communication Protocol over a RS-485 link multi-master networks using the Siemens multimaster cable configured as multimaster.

The RS-232 serial cable specification that was successfully tested with this driver is as follows:
  • Cable PC/PPI multimaster

  • 6ES7 901-3CB30-0XA0

  • E-STAND:03

  • Suggested Cable Dip Switches Configuration:

  • 1 0

  • 2 1 9600 bauds

  • 3 0

  • 4 X Spare

  • 5 1 Multimaster

  • 6 0 Local DCE

  • 7 0 11 bits

  • 8 X Spare

  • Important note:

    The suggested configuration will only work for this driver. If you want to communicate using MicroWin, you will need to set dip switch 5 to 0 in order to have the cable work as Freeport/PPI instead of Multimaster. Besides, you will need to uncheck the "Multimaster" and "Advanced PPI" options in the MicroWin configuration. Set dip switch back to 1 if you want to communicate using this driver.


    Typical COM port settings are:
    9600, N, 8, 1 9600, E, 8, 1 115200, N, 8, 1. 115200, E, 8, 1.
