I have a project i would like to build, what i would like is a Jazz or Vision PLC, to be connected to a switch that will be triggered by product on one of our conveyors as the product triggers this switch, the computer would then execute a batch file that would print a label (This would then allow us to time stamp and consecutively number our boxes correctly), Mainly i am wondering if the ability to trigger an external program from the software.

In our website www.unitronics.com > Support Page > Downloads > PC to PLC communication you can find two communication tools – Active X component DLL (written under VB6) and .NET driver. Both these tools come with detailed, well described examples.

Using one of these tools you will be able to run your software on the PC and communicate with the Jazz.

Then you can read from the Jazz the bits/registers you need for trigering other process.
