Proface HMI with Siemens PLC


Thread Starter


Recently I am working with Proface HMI TouchPanel.

The TP is connected to Siemens S7-300, everything is working perfectly fine, except the Proface Software with a Siemens Driver bundled does not have the option where DB declaration as Timer function.

Because of that, the value I keyed in to the TP, does not match the value shown in STEP7. How can I make it work?

I am running parallel with Proface TP and Siemens MP using MPI connection. How do I work with the Proface? I do not have the Initial Project loaded to the Siemens MP, so I cannot change anything inside there.

Summarized question: How do I configure my Proface DB addressing, where I can get the correct figure?

I am begging for EXPERT help on this matter. Please help me!!!

The S5TIME data type is a unique Siemens timer format consisting of 8 bytes. The first byte defines the time base and the remaining bytes the time value in BCD format.
