Re: Software to Read S5 PLC

The easiest way to achieve this is to build a Windows XP Pro virtual machine using something like VMWare Workstation. Once you have WinXP up and running you'll need to install Siemens Step5 v7.21. As far as I know this was the last version released. As for connection from the PC to the PLC, that dep...

Re: How is the S5 program ?

The S5 v7.xx that you're using only shows 1 segment of code at a time. The line at the bottom of the segment *** means 'end of segment'.

As suggested press page down and you'll see segment 2, then 3 and so on.

Re: Request: S5 Com530

You still need this ? I'll have to check when I get to work, I might have it. I've got most of the old S5 addon packages.

Re: Step 5

I have Step5 training course manuals. I've been to Siemens house in Manchester about 8 times for different courses over the years. I can make a pdf file using our xerox copy centre at work. You'll also want the 'bible' as we call it. Never seen it in electronic format, but again, I'll make a pdf of ...

How To Add Multiple Datawords Together

Hi guys. I'm trying to do something that's probably really easy when you know how, but I don't.
I have a datablock that has 60 data words in it, all in INT format.
I simply want to add together the values of the first 16 datawords.
I'm using an S7-313C 2DP.
Any tips please? Thanks.

[?]: S5 115u Convert KF to KG

Hi guys. I'm trying to do some maths in a 115u 944B CPU. I'd like to divide a fixed value of 768 by a variable value. I'd like the result to be to 1 decimal place. Currently my variable value is in DB10, DW24 in KF format. I've used FB243 to divide 768 by DW24, but this ofcourse is no decimal places...

Thanks

Hi again. Thanks for the info. I can atleast see how its done now. However, if I make a licence have 25 keys, they still only show in ALM as 1 key. Is this because they are old keys and I'm using ALM 3.x ?

OK, I've done that but that's not what I'm asking for. I made a yellow disk with S7 v5.4 key on it. In ALM the key shows once in the list but has 25 keys.

How do I make more like this one ?
