Configuration needed

  • This package was tested on Ubuntu 14.04 with ROS Indigo

  • To be completely tested this package needs a second workstation that has a Microsoft Windows (7/8/8.1) environment with Siemens TIA Portal

  • This package was tested with a S7-1200 Siemens PLC on TIA Portal v13

Quickstart

Download the TIA Portal project (in modbus_wrapper/modbus_plc_siemens/resources/[TIA_PORTAL] S7_1200_Modbus_wrapper) to your siemens PLC to enable the modbus server on the PLC.

Make sure you are able to ping the PLC from the workstation, where you execute your ROS node.

Start a modbus client that connects to a modbus server on PLC, running the programm of the resources directory. Replace the ip address with the address from your PLC. Try first if you are able to ping it.

    $ rosrun modbus_wrapper modbus_client_s7_1200.py _ip:="192.168.199" _port:=502

You should see the first 6 leds flashing like here: S7-1200
