Hello,
I'm wondering if anyone has setup serial communications to a Modicon M340 PLC in Unity software?

I want to be able to command subroutines as well as receive status's back from the smart motor.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

We can do some simple Modbus communications that lets you call subroutines, read motor status, and read/write variables . It only works on the Class5 motors (firmware version 5.x.x.x.

That would be great! Do you have any sample code to get me started. It is on a class 5 motor.

Thanks!

I didn't think it would let me attach the file... but it did. Please let me know if you got it.

csearcy, Do you know of anyone that has used the Modbus communication with a PLC? I think I understand the mapping but I'm not getting any responses back to the PLC. Was hoping someone else has done this to maybe step me in the right direction.

Thanks!
