IGSS32 offers an interface for the ABB Procontic T200 & Hitachi H Series PLC equipment using the serial HI protocol supported by ABB Procontic T200 & Hitachi H Series equipment. It is an asyncronous protocol that can only be run in point to point configuration. The communication driver uses the standard serial RS-232C interface on the PC to connect to either the CPU port or a 07KP60 unit on the PLC.
The IGSS32 system polls the PLC equipment cyclically according to one of four user-defined time intervals. The time intervals are configurable from 100 milliseconds to 999 seconds. The system automatically groups process data in data blocks – thus fully exploiting the the communication link in relation to the present configuration.
