Overview

Product Overview

The Siemens S5 driver exchanges data between OPC clients and Siemens S5 PLCs using the AS511 protocol, which allows a direct connection to the programming port of the PLC. The programming port utilizes a Current Loop connection, requiring the use of either the supplied programming cable or an external RS-232 to Current Loop converter. For more information on wiring and recommendations for Current Loop converters, refer to the product manual. Kepware automatically optimizes data acquisition based on client demand and ensures data integrity through extensive error handling.

Performance

  • Supports direct Peer-to-Peer Current Loop connections from the PC serial port
  • Supports Ethernet Encapsulation, though the protocol's tight timing requirements may preclude the driver from working in all Ethernet network environments
  • Supports multiple PLC connections when using Ethernet Encapsulation
  • Supports the following Memory Types: I, Q, F, T, C, and Data Block Access by named type
  • Supports all data types
  • Modem Support
    • Automatic dial configuration
    • Multiple phone number management
