Description

An open-source LabVIEW implementation of the S7 PLC network protocol using pure TCP/IP primitives, for talking to SIMATIC PLCs (and others) via Ethernet. The original source code was shared by Marc Christenson on NI's Example Program Code Exchange forum (link in the readme).

This is a reference implementation. It might or might not meet traditional production requirements in terms of uptime, security, absence of bugs, etc. Use at your own risk!

In the NI Example Finder, browsing the directory structure, navigate to \Hampel Software Engineering\S7NetCom for examples.

The HSE Dokuwiki holds more information on the protocol and these VIs:
