Definition of PLC: PLC Mode

265 Views Last edit Feb 28, 2017 at 02:30 PM 2 rev

Hi there :),

in MFS with EWM 9.4 (or earlier) a new field "PLC Mode" is available if I want to define a SPS via SCM EWM > EWM > MFS > Master Data > Define PLC

What does this field mean? What behaviour would change if I set a specific value (Case Conveyor System; Case Conveyor System and Rack Feeder; Pallet Conveyor System and Rack Feeder)?

Unfortunately, if I try to define a Communication Point with a PLC which has a PLC Mode other than "Pallet Conveyor System and Rack Feeder", many fields like "IP" or "Clarification Bin" are not editable.

I hope someone will help me with this issue! :) Many thanks in advance!
