XTWIDOS: Schneider Electric Telemecanique Twido PLC Serial Driver v10.0


XTWIDOS: Schneider Electric Telemecanique Twido PLC Serial Driver

General Information:


XTWIDOS driver allows you to connect to Schneider Electric TWIDO PLCs using the Modbus RTU protocol through the TWIDO serial port.

This driver supports RS485 networking to connect multiple slave devices to a single computer.

This driver supports to communicate to the PLC serial port in an ethernet-to-serial configuration and can connect to a serial server such as Moxa or Exemys directly, without needing to install a COM port redirector or creating a virtual COM port.

The Twido port must be configured for Modbus. If using Port 1 of the Twido, the DPT signal must be tied to signal ground.

In order to be able to communicate with your PLC through its serial port, you must be sure to go to the Preferences section in the PLC configuration and select the COM option.

All registers must exist and be created in the PLC memory before any attempt to read or write them. If you get a [8168] CONFIG (Remote): Illegal data address error message, it will be indicating that you are trying to read or write a register that still needs to be created. Some registers might not be accessed directly, meaning that you should create M or MW registers that keep updated a copy of the same information, and then read those M or MW registers.

    Licenses

    The licenses of all our drivers are unlimited in terms of the number of machines where they can be used, the number of I/O that can read or written, and the number of components that can be included in each application.

    After purchasing a license, the owner can use the driver and all its components to assemble and distribute as many applications to as many users as needed.

    The license owner retains full control of his applications by deciding himself what target machines can they be run at. For this, each driver is provided with two runtime license management tools: GetPCId.exe and MakeLic.exe.
