IEEE 754 double float

Recommended Posts

PLC V130 receives double float (64 bit) as 8 bytes with the following format:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_754-1985#Double-precision_64_bit

Can I easily get double float like here: http://www.unitronics.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=2102&SearchTerms=swap+bytes ?

And one more question about FB Swap bytes. It puts swapped bytes into the same MI's. But these MI's are cyclically got from COM-port. So MI's values blink: swapped-unswapped. How can I avoid of the blinking?

About the second question - you can store/copy received MI to another MI and there to perfomr Swap. In this case you will have two registers - each one with its value.

About 64 bit Floating point - currently Unitronics OPLC support 32 bit FP. You can receive the bitmap in two sequental DW, but I don't know how you can decode them to receive the floating point number.

If I copy MI to another MI during every program scan, the swapped value of another MI will be overwritten by the unswapped value in the next program scan. There must be condition for copiing.

You're right - there must be condition.

Which kind of communication you use?

If FB Protocol - Condition can be Message received MB.

If FB Modbus (Master)- negative transition of Function in progress is error code is 0.
