Description of the Profinet OPC server

Profinet OPC Server of the InSAT company is developed as a plugin for Multi-Protocol MasterOPC Server. The Profinet plugin enables Multi-Protocol MasterOPC Server to collect data from, and control Siemens controllers over Ethernet networks. The following controllers are supported:

  • Siemens S7-200

  • Siemens S7-300

  • Siemens S7-400

  • Siemens S7-1200

  • Siemens S7-1500

Main features of Profinet OPC server

  • Tags automatic import (tags of DB blocks section and I,Q,M,C,T memory sections)

  • Support TCP and ISOTCP connection types

  • Monitoring variables values

  • Remote access to the server via DCOM

  • Simultaneous connection with several devices

  • Simultaneous operation with several clients (both via OPC DA and via OPC UA)

Import of tags

Profinet OPC server supports direct tags import from a Siemens project within two steps. First, while in the programming environment of the Siemens controllers (e.g. TIA Portal), you need to export the required data blocks or variables. Which secondly can easily be imported using the OPC server special utility. The tag import function significantly reduces configuration time, and eliminates errors in cases when variables are assigned addresses manually by the user. In this way Profinet OPC server grants an easy way of collecting data from and controlling Siemens controllers.
