Hello everyone,

Has anyone any idea how to communicate a beckhoff PLC with an APRIL 5000?

Hi Elvis,

I think that you have to let us know what fieldbuses the Beckhoff PLC and the April5000 uses and if they are master or slave. (Probably masters)

If they use same fieldbus type, you might not have such a problem. If they do not use the same fieldbus, a gateway might be a solution.
