Weintek HMI & IDEC PLC - Confused on how these tags are linked

2 posts in this topic

Hey all, 

So I am looking for some assistance because I am not understanding how the tags on an HMI and within a PLC are linked. There are no 'physical' buttons, just what is on the HMI. It is controlling a chiller. Communicates over Modbus TCP/IP. The PLC is an IDEC. I have some-what worked out how other tags are working when they are words being passed back and forth, but this one has me stumped. I've attached a few screenshots for referral.

It looks like the run and unload buttons for the chiller are a single bit/BOOL toggle (but the chiller running latches itself in the PLC when the chiller starts to run).

The stop buttons appears to be a parent for the single bit/BOOLs and when it is pressed it resets them all both on the HMI side and within the PLC side.

I'll gove my ideas, so here I go:

It appears the Weintek is acting as a Modbus Master, and writing to the IDEC (in second pic) as 47652.00/ Read register 47652 Bit 0. 

Post here if the forum can provide more info
