I’m a software engineer who works with our PLC team, so please bear with me! We log data from the PLC into our ERP application. The PLC team provides an L5X file which my application parses for tag names, we then choose individual tags to poll within our user interface. The application automatically generates the Eweb XML view for the chosen tags, the point here is that it doesn’t require any PLC programming. This works great for polled data like temperatures read every 5 minutes via Eweb, but it doesn’t work for event-driven data like alarms or detecting state change for a tag. I’m looking for a way for my application to register (subscribe) as a listener for an event without requiring PLC programming for each additional event we want to observe. Upon state change the PLC or middleware just needs to send some type of outbound message, for example, post via http (rest), connect to a socket server or send a message via MQTT within a couple of seconds... We have 8 Eweb cards, all 1756 series controllers at multiple locations and we currently poll them from a central server, so the hardware overhead is minimal. Is there some functionalized code/ladder logic that could act as a standard event listener within the PLC controller? For instance, could my application write tags I’d like to monitor to a string array via eweb write, then have some standard PLC code iterate through the array looking for changes in the underlying tags? Since we’ve got polling working so well, we’d like to avoid a separate device / local middleware server just for events, but perhaps its required? All recommendations welcome as I don’t think I have a grasp of what’s possible or practical!
PAROCK1 for HMI/SCADA View File Now a software solution is available for your Modbus (MB) needs in Rockwell/Allen-Bradley Control Logix or Compact Logix (Clgx) family processors, instead of a traditional 3rd party hardware like Prosoft MVI-56, Molex SST-SR4-CLX-RLL etc. It is an Add-on instruction (AOI) for PLC/PAC firmware v16 or later, (other solutions are available for pre v16 systems). For hardware interface, use PLC’s channel 0 (serial) or TCP/IP Interface module(s) to have as many MB TCP/IP devices or serial devices. (Some limits apply based on system configurations, Comm. settings depending on HW used.) Connect any MB Client/Master or Server/Slave device(s) to your CLgx PLC, including flow computers, analyzers, VFDs, Power Monitors, Level gauges, Smart I/O, etc. All the MB public/native function codes are supported. 32-Bit integers/floats as single entity are supported with byte and word level swapping. A separate utility automates the data mapping to your PLC logic. Features -Serial Master (BASIC required Option); TCP; Slave; Redundancy; More than 5000 accumulative registers; MB CFC (Custom/Private Function Code) Support; Data mapping too – Between PAROCK1 & your PLC logic; Packaged with Rockwell; TCP/IP Interface Module; Volume Discounts; Annual Support Requirements -Rockwell/AB-CLgx processor with v16 or later. Contact PCI for earlier versions. -If using CPU’s Chan0, you cannot use Chan0 for any other user mode activity. You can use it for non-user mode activities -TCP/IP Interface Modules from Rockwell/AB supported, are: -1756-EN2xx ControlLogix® Ethernet/IP communication modules, firmware revision 5.007 or later -1756-EWEB ControlLogix Ethernet/IP web server module, firmware revision 4.006 or later -1768-EWEB CompactLogix Ethernet/IP web server module, firmware revision 1.002 or later -1769-L30ER, 1769-L30ERM, 1769-L30ER-NSE, 1769-L33ER, 1769-L33ERM, and 1769-L36ERM CompactLogix controllers, firmware revision 20.011 or later -1769-L24ER-QB1B, 1769-L24ER-QBFC1B, 1769-L27ERM-QBFC1B CompactLogix controllers, firmware revision 20.011 or later -1769-L16ER, 1769-L18ER, 1769-L18ERM CompactLogix controllers, firmware revision 20.011 or later Other Related Services/Items -Custom PLC Add-on instructions building -PLC upgrades, troubleshooting, applications -PC Windows, iOS5, Linux, Mobile devices Comm. Drivers -Custom development, Technology Transfer Services -Other Non-AB communication drivers for serial or TCP -Full control system integration, training, architecture design This driver can be conviniently used with Visual Studio in development of complete large scale complex HMI/SCADA Systems. It can be used to perform advanced reporting MES, analytics, IoT, Big data type apps.
