Connect KV-7500(Keyence) to PC

1 post in this topic


I want my KV-7500 to talk to a Windows PC via ethernet. My setup is: A KV-7500 (without end unit) and a Windows PC running KV-Studio 10.0.

I checked the USB and the Ethernet ports; both are working.

My idea is: Create a socket on the KV-7500 and send some data. Something like this (in C):


int socket_desc;
struct sockaddr_in server;
char *message;

//Create socket
socket_desc = socket(AF_INET , SOCK_STREAM , 0);

server.sin_addr.s_addr = inet_addr("");
server.sin_family = AF_INET;
server.sin_port = htons( 80 );

//Connect to remote server
connect(socket_desc , (struct sockaddr *)&server , sizeof(server));

//Send some data
message = "GET / HTTP/1.1\r\n\r\n";
send(socket_desc , message , strlen(message) , 0);


Is that possible at all?

Where can I put my code in the KV-Studio?

I must admit that I'm an absolute newbie so please do not hesitate to give me even obvious hints.
