We want to use TCP or UDP communication between a dedicated print board and the ctrlX Core ( in a ctrlX drive plus ) .
Does this already work ?
Do we need a special app to do this ?
Do we just have to use the TCP or UDP libraries in the PLC programm ?
Is there somewhere a description of how to do this ?
Thank you .
Solved! Go to Solution.
this just works out of the box.
The PLC App has full access to all ethernet ports, just use the function blocks in the plc.
The library is "Application/ctrlX AUTOMATION/Communication/CXA_SocketComm"
Find attached a small PLC Project for UDP and for TCP
In general the ctrlX CORE can use any TCP/IP based communication protocol. Independet if drive integrated or not. There just needs to be a communication master/client available.
Of course you could always create an own app (snap container) runnable on the ctrlX CORE to do such communication in the programming language of your choice.
