The Modbus slave from the FAQ Modbus Communikation Master/Slave via Ethernet is used here.


  • Create a "Standard project" and select CODESYS Control Win V3 as the device.
  • Define the target system by means of the Network scan.



  • Insert an Ethernet adapter in the device tree and specify the interface to be used.

    If a target system is not defined yet, then the error message "Gateway not configured" is displayed.




  • Insert a Modbus TCP Master below the Ethernet adapter in the device tree.

  • Insert a Modbus TCP Slave below the Modbus TCP Master in the device tree.



  • Insert it in the Modbus Slave Channel tab and set the properties as follows:



  • Adapt the POU PLC_PRG as follows:



    Declaration

    VAR
        xExec                :    BOOL;
        wMasterSend          :    WORD := 100;
        mbChannel            :    ModbusChannel;
    END_VAR




    Implementation

    mbChannel(slave := Modbus_TCP_Slave, xExecute := xExec);





  • Assign the variable wMasterSend to the output Channel 0[0] in the tab ModbusTCPSlave I/O Mapping.



  • Start the project and set the variable xExecute to TRUE so that the new value is passed to the slave.
  • No labels
