NX MCD and PLCSIM Advanced connection from remote machine

Hi,

 

This is Pramod, is it possible to connect NX MCD 12.0.2 which is on real machine with the PLCSIM Advanced v2.0 and TIA Portal v15.1 installed on virtual machine?

 

I am able to ping the IP of virtual machine and the IP of PLCSIM Advanced from the main machine.

 

Can anyone help me clarify the above query?

Hello Pramod,

 

yes this is possible but you will need to use a different connection method then the direct PLCSim Advanced Interface in MCD.

 

The easiest way would probably be to setup an OPCUA Server in TIA and upload the change to PLC Sim Adv. (PLC Sim Adv. has to have the PLCSIM Virtual Eth. Adapter toggle activated) after that you can connect via your network with the OPC UA Client connection in MCD to your PLC Sim Adv. in your VM.

 

Other methods could also be to use the generic TCP / UDP method in MCD and with TSEND / TRECIEVE in TIA.

 

Best Regards

Viktor

Hi Viktor,

 

Sorry for the late reply,

 

Thank You very much for the solution. With the OPC DA coupled to TIA it communicated from Virtual Machine to NX MCD
