Communication between Delta HMI and Siemens PLC S7-1200

Many users have faced the challenge to connect our DOP series HMI and Siemens S7-1200 PLC. This tutorial is intended to help all who may have little knowledge either Delta HMI or Siemens PLC in order to make this communication easy to set.

HMI-S71200

By following the below steps, you will find an easy way to connect both devices using Ethernet as a communication media:

Settings on Delta HMI side

1- In DOPSoft menu bar, go to “Options” => “Communication Setting”

Settings on Siemens S7-1200 PLC side using TIA Portal

1- Inside the PLC program, the “TCON” system function block (SFB) has to be inserted in order to establish the communication with Delta HMI

2- Open the Main Operation Block “OB1” and insert the “TCON” SFB as follows

3- In “Instructions” -> “Extended instructions” -> “Communications” -> “Open user communication”, open the “Others” folder and drag the “TCON” block to the operation block. This automatically generates an instance data block for the “TCON” function that you have to confirm with “OK”

Picture 54- Set the Input and Output parameters of the TCON block. Press F1 when selecting the TCN Block to access online help

5- Inside the properties of the TCON block specify the IP address of the communication partner

DOPSoft – Insert new picture

The people who already work with Delta for a long time, already knows how to do that.
But If you just started with us, that little help can save you a lot of time.

The video attached shows you how to insert your pictures in your HMI program.
The typical use should be for example a photo of your machine. And once you added, you can put all the warnings and alarms on the same machine picture like a SCADA synoptic.

But remember! more pictures you add bigger you program is, so be careful with the size of your pictures.

ISPSoft – DOPSoft Tag list

Handle variables between PLC program an HMI program, sometimes should be really complicate.
Everytime I made new program, I make my own excel file with all the variables to do not forget where are located, or what´s it´s name.

So once we start to develop the new Delta software for HMI and PLC, we thought it would be a good idea to have a simple method to share variables. And of course using a Excel file, why not!

Let´s check this video.


Full screen recommended

As you can see with the new ISPSoft for PLC´s, and DOPSoft for HMI´s.
Is really easy to export/import variables making the programing experience faster and user friendly.

Don´t hesitate to share your experiences with us.
