PLCDataReader

The PLCDataReader is a simple and cost-effective way to read data directly from a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and write it to a XLSX file or CSV file. These can be e.g. protocols or measurement data. The DataReader is a program of our PLC Data Tools.

Applications

  • Acquisition of production data

  • Acquisition of quality data

  • Logging of processes which are controlled by the S7

  • Supply of quality proofs

  • Saving machine settings

  • and many more applications …

The program runs in the background, so that the Computer can be used for other things. Via a tray menu entry you can view the status and change the configuration. You can make the most important settings in just a few steps. This includes the PLC connection, the memory options and the assignment of PLC data to the Excel cells or rows. Done! Now you can program the S7 to fit. We support you with an example program for TIA-Portal.

Flexible use

You can realize a multiple applications with the PLCDataReader. All data stored in the data blocks of the PLC can be written to Excel tables or CSV files. The process is completely controlled by the S7 PLC. By means of so-called triggers. These trigger conditions can be set somewhere in the PLC program.

As a result, e.g. such an Excel file could be generated:

Simple data assignment

You can completely determine the appearance and content of the Excel files yourself. Simply assign data block addresses to Excel columns. Would you like to handle master data, such as machine names, separately? No problem. You can easily define so-called header data by assigning columns and rows. If you have a lot of repetitive data: We make it easy for you! You can define blockwise repeating structures once. These are then written X times.
