Hello, great app. Just a request for Siemens/VIPA support.
I use Siemens and VIPA PLCs often in my line of work and it would be great if ScadaMobile would support this and it would be great to show off to clients.
I sometimes use an app called ‘iPLC RW’ to monitor points using the ‘S7 TCP RFC1006′ protocol but the app is very buggy and would prefer to use ScadaMobile.
We have plans to support Siemens in the future, this is indeed a common request, but we are so far having a hard time finding an integrator or a Siemens representative that would help us with these PLCs. I use the occasion to ask the community for any pointers to internet resources or others where we can find relevant information.
Particularly, a detailed, low level description of the raw communication frames for accessing S7 systems through the RFC1006 protocol would be very appreciated. In the mean time, you may be able to use modbus/TCP in combination with the Open Modbus package from Siemens. See brochure:
Please look at our News section and the Release Notes section. The manual is currently being updated and we expect it to be ready in two days or so. Do not hesitate to submit any feedback when you try it !
