Productivity 1000 PLC AdvancedHMI Modbus TCP

We will now look at communication between the Productivity 1000 PLC (Modbus TCP Server) and AdvancedHMI (Modbus TCP Client). Advanced HMI is a powerful, adaptable HMI/SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) development package that takes advantage of Visual Studio. There is no coding required and you can simply drag and drop items onto the page. The best thing is that the software is free. We will look at using AdvancedHMI with the Productivity 1000 Series PLC.

Our sample Productivity 1000 PLC program will display a digital panel meter and a gauge of a value in the PLC. Stop and start momentary pushbuttons on the HMI will allow this number to increase or stop. An indication will turn green when the number is increasing and red when it has stopped. The AdvancedHMI package will communicate Modbus TCP over Ethernet to the Productivity 1000 PLC. We will be able to monitor our process via the AdvancedHMI window. Let’s get started.
