ETH-iBUS Ethernet Converter

1. ETH-iBUS is a convenient product that can be used without any work in the S7-200PLC.

2. ETH-iBUS can be directly connected to WinCC [selected driver is TCP/IP (auto) – Siemens comes with] without using PC ACCESS [OPC mode], high communication reliability

3. Q, I, M, DB1 in WinCC (remember: DB1) corresponds to Q, I, M, V in the S7-200 PLC.

4. ETH-iBUS can also be directly connected to MicorWin 4.0 to program the S7-200 PLC, download the program, and debug online.

5. ETH-iBUS requires an external 24V power supply.

6. There are 2 TCP/IP channels (Note: Only two upper computers can be serviced. WinCC and MicroWin 4.0 can be run simultaneously in the same upper computer; in theory, up to six upper computers can be connected, but we have not yet Tested this situation)

7. Configuration plan:

a. Line type: that is, a PLC (s7-200) and a host computer (computer), directly connected by a crossover cable (RJ45 network cable). (Note: NICs with cross function can also be used with direct connection)

b. Star type: that is, multiple PLCs (S7-200) and one (up to) upper computer (computer), which need to be connected to the network switch, connect the switch to each device with direct connection (RJ45 network cable)

8.ETH-iBUS parameter setting:

    a.ETH-iBUS communication converter IP: Its segment address must be the same as the connected computer, that is, the first three items are the same, and the fourth item is different.

Example: Computer IP (192.168.1.100), mask (255.255.255.0), gateway (192.168.1.1), converter IP (192.168.1.10)

Note: IP is unique in the same network and cannot be the same. The computer also sets the corresponding IP address, mask and gateway (in the same segment as the converter)

Once the IP address of the ETH-iBUS converter is set, as long as the IP address, mask and gateway of the computer are in the same segment (ie the same as the first three items, the fourth item is different), type directly in the browser of the computer. The IP address of the ETH-iBUS communication converter, and the ETH-iBUS converter does not communicate with other software of the host computer at this time, it will enter the main menu of the ETH-iBUS converter.

    b.ETH-iBUS Communication Converter MAC: A total of six items, filled in with hexadecimal numbers (Hex:0..9, A, B, C, D, E, F)

The first item is 0 (the converter will change it to 0 even if you fill in other values), and the other 5 items can be filled in as you like, and cannot be the same as other MACs in the network.

Note: The MAC is unique in the same network and cannot be the same. The minimum interval between two adjacent MAC addresses is 1, for example: 00.12.FF.FF.01 and 00.12.ff.03 The interval is 1, not continuous!

After submitting the parameter settings, if you want to enter the main menu again, it is best to type c> arp -d (remove the reserved IP/MAC table in the computer) in the cmd window, so that the ETH-iBUS converter can change the IP/MAC and the old one. Address no conflict

Set the IP address of ETH-IBUS using the PC tool ETH_iBUS_SET.exe

9. Settings of the application software in the computer:

(1) For MicroWin 4.0 just open –> Communication –> Set PC / PG Interface –> TCP / IP (auto) ; Communication –> Type the remote IP address: Example 192.168.1.10 Enter (don’t forget Hit the Enter key); everything is OK.

(2) For WinCC, the driver selects TCP/IP(auto)–the driver that with WinCC, and the address is filled in 192.168.1.10

(3) For Kingview v6.53 or later, the driver selects S7-200 series –> TCP, address is filled in 192.168.1.10:0

(4) For PC_Access, the IP address is filled in 192.168.1.10, but the TSAP local and remote parameters do not need to be filled out!

ETH-PPi Ethernet Converter

ETH-PPI=CP243i+wincc Direct connection function (ie no PC ACCESS).
It enables you to connect to the S7-200 with the driver [TCP/IP(auto)] that comes with WinCC.
It is simple and convenient to use in engineering applications.
Reduces communication instability caused by the use of OPC [PC ACCESS]! I, Q, M, DB1 (remember to be DB1) in WinCC correspond to I, Q, M, V in s7-200
It is very simple to use and can be used immediately after filling in the IP address. At the same time, the S7-200 programming software MicroWin 4.0 can also work at the same time.
It can upload and download the s7-200 through ETH-PPI, and debug and monitor it online.
The function is quite powerful. Siemens can’t do it at the same time! In addition, Siemens Prodave 6.0 It is not possible to connect to the S7-200, but with the ETH-PPI converter, the S7-300 TCP protocol is completely feasible! This is the best way to solve problems for customers who like programming (especially in data acquisition projects). !

Advantage:

1. Connect wincc without OPC, you can connect directly to enhance communication stability.

2. You can use Siemens Prodave 6.0 and VB to develop your own S7-200 with upper software.  

Note: If you don’t need wincc to connect directly or use Prodave to develop your own S-200 host software, you can choose our CP243i because it is relatively cheaper.

Rail type ETH-PPI: Simultaneous rail mounting and screw mounting.

Simple ETH-PPI: the function is the same as above, but the shape is relatively small

Hardware connection method:

1) Line type: that is, a PLC (s7-200 and a host computer (computer), directly connected by a crossover line (RJ45 network cable).

2) Star mode: one PLC (s7-200) and two upper computers (computers) or multiple PLCs (S7-200) and one upper computer (computer) or multiple PLCs (s7-200) and Two upper computers (computers), and an Ethernet switch is required in the middle.

Connect the switch to each device with a direct cable (RJ45 network cable).

The most common connection method is line type. Use a good network cable communication distance of up to 100 meters, too far distance to add a pair of fiber optic transceivers and fiber optic cable, distance up to 4 kilometers, within 200 meters can be added in the middle of a switch, play a relay role .

ETH-PPI converter settings:

The parameter setting of ETH-PPI is set by IE browser. At this time, the PLC connected to ETH-PPI converter should be powered on (Note: ETH-PPI converter is powered by PLC) and ETH-PPI should be used at the same time. Connect to the computer network cable (line type crossover cable (RJ45 network cable) star type with two direct connection lines (RJ45 network cable) connected to the ETH-PPI and computer by the switch) Set the computer IP address to (192.168.1.100), Mask (255.255.255.0), gateway (192.168.1.1), finally enter 192.168.1.222 in the IE browser of the computer to enter the main menu of ETH-PPI: Click [Parameter Settings/Display] to enter the setting screen.

A detailed description of each parameter can be found in the following:

[Because ETH-PPI can be set automatically, you don’t need to fill in the parameters below, but sometimes you need to change the IP value and ETH-PPIi station number]

A, EHT-PPI communication converter IP: Its segment address must be the same as the connected computer, that is, the first three items are the same as the fourth phase.

Example 1: Computer IP (192.168.1.100), mask (255.255.255.0), gateway (192.168.1.1), converter IP (192.168.1.10).

Example 2: Computer IP (200.156.8.108), mask (255.255.255.0), gateway (200.156.8.1), converter IP (200.156.8.16).

Example 3: Computer IP (200.202.9.126), mask (255.255.255.0), gateway (200.202.9.1), converter IP (200.202.9.18).

Note: IP is unique in the same network and cannot be the same. The computer also sets the corresponding IP address, mask, and gateway (in the same segment as the converter).

Once the IP address of the converter is set, as long as the IP address, mask and gateway of the computer are in the same segment (ie the same as the first three items, the fourth phase is different), the EHT-PPI communication is directly entered into the browser of the computer. The IP address of the converter, and the EHT-PPI converter does not communicate with the host computer at this time, it will enter the main menu of the ETH-PPI converter. Of course, you can also type 192.168.1.222 in the browse of the computer. It will also enter the main menu of the ETH-PPI converter (provided that: the ETH-PPI converter is not connected to the host computer online and the IP address, mask and gateway of the computer are in the same segment, and only the network is in the same network. An ETH-PPI converter, the other ETH-PPI converters must be disconnected from the network).

B, ETH-PPI communication converter MAC: a total of six items, filled with hexadecimal numbers (Hex:0..9, A, B, C, D, E, F) The first item is 0 (even if you fill When entering other values, the converter will also change it to 0), and the other 5 items can be filled in as you like, and cannot be the same as other MACs in the network.

Note: The MAC is unique in the same network and cannot be the same.

The above is the relevant settings of the Internet network, the following is the relevant settings of the PPI bus [Because ETH-PPI can be set automatically, you do not need to fill in the parameters below]:

C, PPI baud rate:

Refers to the communication rate of the PLC (S7-200) PPI interface connected to the ETH-PPI converter (set in the configuration of the S7-200, see Siemens STEP7 MicroWiin Programming Manual). There are three baud rates: 9600, 19200 At 187.5K, the default baud rate for PPI is typically 9600.

Note: It is strongly recommended that the user set the PPI communication baud rate of the PLC (S7-200) to 187.5K [MicroWin200], -> communication port setting –> download to S7 – because of this, you can get a higher data refresh frequency.

D, PLC_PPI station number: [this parameter does not need to be set]

Refers to the PPI station number of the PLC (S7-200) connected to the ETH-PPI converter (set when configuring the S7-200, see West

The STEP7 MicroWin Programming Manual), the default value of the PPI station __________ is 2. You can also check in the “PPI Communication Status Display”

Look, the mark “X” represents the actual station number of the PPI on the bus, and then fill it in the “Parameter Settings / Display” menu. Of course, if you already know the station number of the connected PPI, you can write it directly without checking it.

E, ETH-PPI station number: refers to the station number of the ETH-PPI converter itself, as long as it is not the same as other station numbers on the bus, generally set to 0, this parameter needs to be set manually.

F, the highest PPI station number [this parameter does not need to be set]: refers to the maximum station number allowed on the PPI bus, which can select 4 values, 15, 31, 63, 126.

Example 1: PLC_PPI station number = 2, ETH_PPI station number = 0, the highest PPI station number should be selected 15

Example 2: PLC_PPI station number = 10, ETH_PPI station number = 108, the highest PPI station number should be selected 126

G, humanized products: Because ETH-PPI fully considers the feelings of beginners, you can use it almost without modifying the parameter settings. ETH-PPI is a fully automatic product with high artificial intelligence.

After the parameter settings are submitted, if you want to enter the main menu again, it is best to type c> arp -d in the cmd window (delete calculations)

The IP/MAC table has been reserved in the machine, so that the newly changed IP/MAC of the CP243i converter does not conflict with the old address.
