Re: Intouch S7 IOServer

Is it possible, using the InTouch S7 IOServer to talk to Ethernet (MAC addressed) S7 PLCs and TCP/IP (IP addressed) S7 PLCs at the same time? I am using a Siemens CP1613 card and S7-1613 Industrial Ethernet software, the Com L S7 software will only let me set Ethernet or TCP/IP but not both when setting up a .ldb file. I have read about using NetPro to create an .xdb file that would allow Ethernet and TCP/IP comms links but will the S7 IOServer read a .xdb file?

Yes it is possible. Com L will let you set up both. Simply separate the two files by a semicolon.
