Ethernet comms to Beckhoff coupler

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if anyone else has tried, but you should be able to communicate with these devices. You actually have three choices, in order of preference:

1) use the native DAQFactory modbus TCP driver to communicate with these devices directly. This is by far the preferred way because no extra software is needed.

2) it appears they have an OPC server for their hardware. DAQFactory is an OPC client and therefore could communicate with their server

3) they provide DLL's that you could link to using the extern() function in DAQFactory.

As I said, #1 is the choice I recommend.
