Hi everybody, this is me psoting for the first time here. Currently I am taking a distributed control systems course, and one of our current tasks is the following: "Develop a control system with the task to control an induction (asnychronous) motor. You may use HMI SCU 8B5 (Schneider electric PLC) and Altivar71( Schneider VFD). The communication protocol to be used is CanOpen. The process should be visualized on the HMI of the PLC. Using the IGSS scada system, you should be able to control and observe the system on a PC." I have written the SoMachine program that I will upload to the PLC(basically Schneider provided the code for the exact same hardware:https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VW9deqK5TeEEQeA6fZZjteijUs7xVPcH/view?usp=sharing). Then I moved on to set up the IGSS scada program, following the pdf manual listed on their site, page 18 and on:http://d2i1dro1ulg1xm.cloudfront.net/training/FullWS_Exercise_Master.pdf . I tried to follow through all the steps, however I do have a few questions. First, in step 8., which driver should I use for my hardware? I selected the Modicon driver, as that was one of the few Schneider drivers available(see attached image). My second question is with regards to connecting the variables that the PLC sends to the PC and actual objects in the graphical environment, such as on page 32. How do I do it? If anyone has more materials on this topic, it would be greatly appreciated. I can't get any help from my tutor(he refuses, and says we do our own research). If you know somebody who could perhaps help me out on this one, please feel free to share with them this question.
