Retrieve Unit serial number


Recommended Posts

How would I retrieve the hardware serial number from the V230 throught the .net interface?


Currently I'm following the documented example of


          plc = PLCFactory.GetPLC(serial, 0)

            Dim version As PlcVersion = plc.Version

            plc.RTC = DateTime.Now ' write current time and date to the PLC

Hi Aaron,


Are you wanting to retrieve the Unique PLC ID that is assigned to each Controller? I'm not 100% sure if the Unique PLC ID is related to the Hardware Serial Number..


To retrieve the Unique ID you need to perform a simple Operand Read Operation to read System Double-Word #9 (SDW9).


If you need a code example on how to do this please let me know.
