SPSLogger V0.1.10 available

  • Fixed error Import/Export values with decimal points.

SPSLogger V0.1.8 available

An update for SPSLogger is available.

Version 0.1.8 contains the following improvements:

Online connection over the Internet (eg VPN connections)


Sample configuration for a VPN dial-up router that is connected to a Siemens CPU S7-315PN.

The configuration must be adapted to the local connection.

Possible problems with online connections

  • The response time of the controller is too slow. Measure: Increase the timeout (eg to 5000000)
  • The PLC can not be reached via Ping. This is the case when the ping response is deactivated during the VPN connection. Result: The “Find connection” function is not connected. All parameters must therefore be entered manually and tested using the “Check connection” function.

Online connection with NetLinkPro via MPI or Profibus (eg S7-315-2DP)

Connection DP

Using the NetLinkPro adapter from Deltalogic.

If the adapter is connected to the Profibus port, the protocol “DP protocol with NetLinkPro (Siemens S7-300 / 400)” must be set. The remaining settings are valid for the Profibus. For example, the Profibus address of the PLC must be entered at “MPI address PLC”.

Sample configuration for a Siemens CPU S7-315-2DP.

This configuration should apply to all S7-300 and S7-400 CPUs with MPI or Profibus connection.
