S7 CMX – Java and .NET Drivers
Drivers for communication with Simatic S7 over TCP/IP
Simatic S7™ controllers make Ethernet connections possible. The S7 CMX software makes it possible to connect to an S7 controller from within a Java application via an RFC1006-compatible protocol. For this to be possible, the S7 must possess a communication module with an Ethernet connection (e.g. CP 343 or CP 443).
Reliability and risk assessments, combined with information from manufacturers’ specifications, expert recommendations and simulations using physical models, provide a robust basis for decision-making in the field of servicing and maintenance optimization. It is possible to optimize the conventionally defined intervals in order to minimize costs and machine and system downtimes while continuing to comply with safety-related, HSE and administrative constraints.
