When I/O from S7-PLCSIM V5 doesn’t work you probably need to add I/O modules assigned to the addresses used in Factory I/O.
Factory I/O reads and writes to the peripheral input/output (PI/PQ memory areas) of S7-PLCSIM V5. When using a hardware configuration with no peripheral I/O modules PI and PQ are empty and therefore no changes are made to the I and Q images, making it seem like the communication between Factory I/O and PLCSIM is not working.
Adding I/O modules to the station usually fixes the issue. Please note that the modules should use the same addresses as the ones used by Factory I/O.
You can also refer to a step-by-step guide on how to connect Factory I/O with S7-PLCSIM V5.
Did you follow the setting up guide?
If so, what was the error message displayed when connection failed?
Yes I followed the setting up side but failed. First I tried in the TIA PORTAL V16 with Factory(2.4.3) . There are pictures about the problem.
By the way in Factory IO, S7 1200 and 1500 run. Only S7 300 is a problem!!
On the other hand I tried same steps with SIMATIC MANAGER 5.6 and Factory IO (2.4.3) runs!
You have to start the simulator inside TIA Portal and not from the Windows menu.
- When I start the simulator from the Windows menu I have the same problem
- But when I start the simulator inside TIA Portal the problem seems to be solved
Hereby a screenshot “how to start the simulator inside TIA Portal”.
Sorry, I couldnt reply you about your solution. I am a new member of this community. So I couldnt reply more than 3 answers . Thats why I deleted one of the photo of this conversation.I tried your suggestion but failed again, same problem.
I followed your steps in TIA PORTAL V16.
But in Simatic Manger Factory IO runs.
Also can you tell me how can I write more than 3 times?
@m_imrak The forum has a default security measure that prevents a user from making more than 3 posts in a row. I have increased it to 5 so it’s more tolerant.
Must say that I had to reinstall PLCSim because I had some issues with it. Think that a recent Microsoft Windows 10 update created the issue.
- Used CPU = 6ES7 314-6EH04-0AB0
- TIA Portal version = V15.1
- PLCSim version = V5.4 SP8
- Factory IO version = 2.4.5
Thank you for your replies. I will try to solve it and when I find a solution for my problem I will write here.
