Tcp/Ip for Freelance
Hi Gargav, How are you?
I saw a topic where you posted a doc with some block configurations to make a Tcp/Ip Eth communication between two 800F emulators.
Does Freelance needs any kind of hardware to make this comm ? I ask this because in the basic training I was told that the eth card was only to system comm (internal operations).
I need to make a communication between Freelance (800F) and a PP845A and I was thinking about doing this with tcp/ip eth.
I am doing fine, Thanks
yes true that eth card is for system communication + ( eth S/R) in AC 7/800F, I recommend you to get connected via modbus rtu between ac 800f and panel 800. you need to use FI 820F module.
Incase you want to use tcp/ip, one possibility is to use some thirdparty gateways modbus (rtu to modbus tcpip). But then with new freelance version 2013, AC 900F and other controller is having integrated modbus tcp/ip to connect with panel 800 or modbus tcp/ip master/slave devices, go for that :)
Hope that helps...
