The following specification is required to establish the connection between the FORCAM FORCE EDGE and a Siemens S7:IP address

• MPI address

• Rack number

• Slot number

In most cases the MPI address is 1, the rack number 0 and the slot number 1.

It must also be ensured that routing from the EDGE node to the S7 is possible via port 102.

Furthermore, the addresses of the signals to be used are required.

Three things must be set on the S7 itself.

• The S7 must be set to "Full access".

• The PUT/GET communication must be activated.

• If data is to be read from data blocks, the "Optimized block access" option must be deactivated.
