    A REAL is 32 bits wide, google for IEE754 There are many tricks to shuffle 4 bytes into a REAL. Try reading up on a UNION in which you can declare a REAL, 2 WORDS and 4 BYTE's to occupy the same memory space. good luck

    Hi all! I'm testing the new Windows 11 from Microsoft. I'm trying to install the "CODESYS Control for Raspberry PI 4.1.0.0" package on "CODESYS V3.5 SP17 Patch 1" and I'm having problems. The package does not install. Is someone having a similar problem and has a solution? Thanks in advance for help!

    That's possible, but it involves some ugly hardware-dependent trickery. Can you share the platform the Codesys runtime is running on? Both OS and processor.

    Hi, The Modbus feature in Codesys regards incoming variables as 'WORD' types. My RS485 kWhr meter sends data via two 16 bit REAL numbers which form the 'Hi Byte' & 'Low Byte' of the transmitted value. (Definitely overkill for my application.) I can read the separately received WORDS in Codesys but clearly they are unusable in that format. Can someone show me the way to convert these back to a single REAL variable? Thanks in anticipation, Regards Bernie Talk Topic about project #bernie-bbq

    Take a look at the red line on this graphic from the store page So you see that in addition to the EtherCAT link, there is also a dedicated network link between the two PLCs (the red line). There is also a third network to link to the rest of the plant.

    I think it means your Remote I/O and fieldbus devices can only be switched over to the redundant controller if they are EtherCAT or Profibus based.

    On recent release of Redundancy SL for soft PLC, i am planning to involve in my Control System. So i am building a POC for it. I have gone through this that it supports The following fieldbuses are supported: EtherCAT (3S-Smart Software Solutions GmbH Stack) Profibus via Hilscher CIF50 card Does it means the redundant controller should be connected to master controller only through EtherCAT or Profibus. What is it about?

    Hello all! We at ifm are interested in creating a custom “hmi package” for our customers using the VisuElement Toolkit. Before I start digging into how to create an object can someone please help with questions below • Does anyone know of any vendor/OEM or company that already has created these hmi packages using this toolkit, and we can license from them? We really don’t want to start from scratch, we’ll be happy to pay royalty or license fee etc. • If the answer to above is no, then does anyone...
