How to connect PC to SAMBA PLC with ethernet?

Recommended Posts

Hi All.

To start with I need to connect SAMBA to PC.

Our training providers provided all the amazing stuff except a manual or reference document to use. There are a lot of assumptions that people should have some basic networking skills, but this is not always the case.

What settings must be set and noted on the PLC and the same for the PC please?

I refer to stuff like IP addresses, gateways, 

Ethernet paramaters on the PLC - INFO mode

Ethernet paramaters on the PC - adapter settings

Have you installed an Ethernet card? If so, just place in the ladder a TCP/IP Initialization block with an IP address that is on the same subnet as your PC and a PLC Name block with a name of your choosing. Select TCP/IP (Call) in the communications section of VisiLogic along with the IP address and PLC name you used in the function blocks. There is plenty of information in the Help file and there are several example projects that came with your VisiLogic installation that should be able to help you. Also, there are YouTube videos produced by Unitronics that will walk you through all of this.
