How to get the PLC's IP address without using indirect addressing ?

Recommended Posts

Hi there i am having a little trouble trying to find the IP address in my controllers memory; i am conecting via ethernet using a V350 and i am entering the IP address directly in the TCP/IP CARD INIT function block but the deal is that i want to show the current address in my HMI so i looked all over the SI,SDW,MI's etc and try to see where in the memory of the controller is the address stored but i couldn't find it, and if i co to the configuration directly in my controller i can see the MAC address and also the IP address so i suposse it has to be stored somewhere in the memory but i don't know where... If any of you guys know where it is i would aprecieate your coments o e-mails as well.

Thank you and have a good day.

If all you want to do is show the information on the HMI take a look under the "Strings" menu in the ladder editor and use the "IP to ASCII" and "MAC to ASCII" functions. Then you can display the resultant strings on the HMI screen.

Hi Newbee here - I have successfully configured my V700 to receive a REMOTE call via TCP/IP - I have tried to use the IP to ASCII function and display on the HMI with ASCII String.

I must be missing out on something.  I have hard coded the internal IP Address of 172.16.200.100 via the  TCP/IP CARD INIT Function.  Does the IP to ASCII function assume that I had stored my Internal IP address in a  MI ? I may have answered my own question  :/ .. if I hardcoded the IP address .. I may as well just DISPLAY the same address on the HMI.

BTW Loving the Unitronics V700 and VISILOGIC ..
