Siemens S5 data range and index


Thread Starter

Sergio Rinaldi

Is there a standard way of retreiving the data range and index values for each tag programmed in a Siemens S5 PLC?

I need to retrieve these values and convert them into a symbolic address to allow an interface to read the values for individual tags

Specifically I'm interested in the S5 range DB, and data type Word, Dword, along with perhaps bitnumbers for digital tags.

I'm having an S5 utility, downloaded from an site that now I'm not remember address, maded with VB6, with sources files, that giving you an example for reading all (to my mind)S5 parameters. It's an example that get more customizations, if you know a lot of VB language.
