How to Receive Program from SattCon OP45 PLC?


Thread Starter


My task is to upgrade a control system based on SattCon OP45 PLC to a Simatic control system.

I have some questions:

1- What is the appropriate software, DOX5 or DOX10?

2- And how to receive program from PLC in both of cases?

3- Can I use RS232 DB9 to DB25 cable to ensure communication between SattCon and PC?

Thank you :)
You need a special cable. You can make one. you need a 25pin male and 9 pin female connect<pre>
9pin 25pin

3 - 2
2 - 3
5 - 7
You can use a plane terminal program
baud rate is 9600 7 e 1
by default.

type <enter> list pbs <enter>

you should see all the code

if you use a terminal program to capture it to a file you can look at it offline.

This way you don't need dox5 or dox10 which otherwise depends on what version the processor happens to be running. Also there are several versions of dox5 and dox10 which are not compatable with each other.

You can email me at [email protected] if you need more info
I notice that a new OP45 starts life at 300baud but 9600baud is more common. This could be very useful to know.
