I'm back again. This time I'm working with an Simatic 545. This is completely my first time working with 545.
The client wants to communicate it with Wonderware SCADA via Ethernet. I already found the Kepware driver to make them talk to each other. The PLC already has one ethernet module installed. I haven't seen it except on pictures. My questions are:
1. Can the 545 PLC accept two ethernet modules? specificaly, 2572-A?
2. If the answer to question 1 is a NO, can the 545 existing ethernet handle two SCADA communication? because right now it is already connected to a Local LAN and the client wants to have a SCADA in a remote station. They'll be using AT&T as sevice provider.
3. Is 2572-A compatible with Simatic 545 series?
4. I have TIsoft version 7 and working on it now. If the loaded program was configured using softshop, can I upload it using TIsoft?
Thank you very much. Hope some experts answer my questions.
