Hello bhavesh,

 

and welcome to the PLM Community.

 

You need to be a bit more specific where you need help with the Mechatronics Concept Designer.

 

We need more Information to work with, for example:

Do you have already have a model in MCD?

Are you struggeling at a specific task or feature?

What kind of PLC do you want to use?

 

Best regards

Viktor

Re: mechatronics concept designer guide

Hey Bhavesh,

 

you have different options here I will list the 4 most common used here: 

  1. Connect via Shared Memory (SHM) to SIMIT and over Ethernet to Simulation Unit and then ProfiNET or ProfiBus to your Simatic S7-300 --> This is probably the best and most complete solution because it simulates your hardware configuration with the Simulation Unit and complex devices with SIMIT --> But you need the SIMIT software and the Simulation Unit Hardware

  2. Connect MCD to Simit via SHM and Simit will connect to your PLC via ProDave
    Here you only need the SIMIT Software but also ProDave on your PLC

  3. OPC via Simatic NET - If you have Simatic NET you can use their OPC Server and connect directly via MCD to the Server. Advice: Try to get SIMATIC NET and MCD on the same Computer then you dont need to hassle with the OPC DA / COM Network Configurations that can be extremly painful at times...
     
  4. OPC and Simatic Connection via 3rd. party tools like "Process Simulator" (only recommend for testing)
    If you want to use the free tool "Process Simulator" then you connect with MCD via OPC to Process Simulator and from there you can use the S7TCPIso Interface to your PLC (Ethernet)

 

Best regards

Re: mechatronics concept designer guide

Dear Sir,

 

I am using OPC scout 

 

Please help me for that

Re: mechatronics concept designer guide

Dear Sir,

 

Kindly send me the sample programe for simit which you have confugered

Re: mechatronics concept designer guide

Dear Bhavesh,

 

sorry i cannot send you the Simit Project because I have none that I can share.

 

For examples / more information for Simit, Scout and Simatic products you have to contact your specific support and / or your regional Account Manager.

 

It also probably makes sense to visit a training or specific workshop for the products above, there are also partners and ofcourse Siemens internal expertise that you can contact on the matter.

 

In this Forums we mainly support the PLM Products, that beeing said, if you have specific problem or questions about MCD / NX / Tecnomatix or Teamcenter, feel free to ask them here.

 

 

Best regards,

Viktor
