loading a data table from network

Recommended Posts

we are trying to use a plc to connect to the network so it can automatically reload a data table periodically to make sure it is up to date. As well as how  to have an excel sheet be converted to a udtf format for the plc so that we don't need to manually do that each time.

I am currently only finding how to load files from an SD card, and not how to use the Ethernet connection to retrieve files.

The SD card on a UniStream is accessible from the UniStream's built-in FTP server if it is enabled.  That will let you read or write all the files on the card.

It's under PLC Communications->Protocols.

Is this what you are looking for?

As far as automatically converting an Excel sheet to a .udtf file, I'd upload your spreadsheet to the SD card in .csv format and then use the Convert CSV to UDTF function as you see fit.
