So i am currently looking in to the possibility off sending strings (probably between 20 and 32 characters) to a v560 plc over modbus TCP. The purpose of the string is product name/version that is going to be produced on the machine where the v560 is installed. So the operator can easily sees if the right parameters are loaded. currently we do this with a 7 to 10 digit number but a mistake is easily made. How i am thinking of achieving this is by converting the string to ASCII and writing it to 16 integers. Then in theory i could use ASCII string variable to display the name on the HMI. For the moment i dont see any problems with the setup, but before i start writing the program i thought i might be smart to ask around here for other opinions. maybe there is a smarter way to do this?
